The history, heritage and glamour of the luxury French brand will combine with the best in New York style and innovation when the new Baccarat Hotel and Residences opens its doors in 2014.
Located across from the Museum of Modern Art on 53rd Street, the striking 50-storey glass tower will be located in the heart of Manhattan, just a stone’s throw from the high-class boutiques of 5th Avenue, making its 62 luxury apartments and 114 room hotel one of the city’s most elegant addresses.
Crystal glassware company Baccarat was established by Louis XV in 1764 and prides itself on its exquisite craftsmanship. The brand was acquired by the Starwood Capital Group in 2005 and in 2012 the plan was announced for a chain of luxury resorts and residences in several locations including Morocco, Dubai and China. The flagship New York hotel development is due for completion next year and its magnificent accompanying residences are currently being snapped up by wealthy buyers looking for an elite piece of real estate in one of the most desirable districts of the Big Apple.
62 one to five bedroom apartments are located between floors 18-49 while the top floor is home to a spectacular penthouse which is on the market for $60 million and boasts a huge 1,137 sq ft master suite and dramatic double-height loggia offering majestic views across the city.
Designer Tony Ingrao has created modern, elegant spaces throughout with large windows, carefully selected materials and custom-made Baccarat pieces for each apartment. All owners will have access to the prestigious hotel amenities which include personal concierge services, 24-hr private dining and use of the spa, indoor pool and gym facilities. The hotel will also feature Baccarat chandeliers, a boutique selling the brand’s creations and crystal museum pieces which will be placed in the lobby.
