Pendry Hotels has been selected as the hotel operating partner for Manhattan West, an eight-acre, six-building, mixed-use development in New York’s Hudson Yards.
Comprising 164 guestrooms, a signature restaurant, lounge and open-air terrace bar, the hotel portion of the project – Pendry Manhattan West – is expected to break ground in Q3 2018, and be completed in 2021. With architecture by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, and interiors by local practice Gachot Studios, the hotel will seek to marry California-style laid-back comfort with Manhattan’s energy, unifying the country’s coasts by way of design.
“New York City is a destination we have had our eyes set on for many years, and Brookfield Properties is the ideal partner to collaborate on Pendry Hotels’ New York City debut,” explains Alan J. Fuerstman, founder, chairman and CEO of management company Montage International.
Situated between the soon-to-be-redeveloped Penn Station and the new 7-train station at Hudson Yards, the 7-million ft2 Manhattan West development will feature 844 residential units alongside dedicated office space, a vibrant urban plaza with landscaped gardens, a high-end retail programme and a series of innovative fine-dining culinary concepts, all tied together with curated public arts and events programming.
Ric Clark, Senior Managing Partner and Chairman of developers Brookfield Property Group and Brookfield Property Partners, adds: “We are thrilled to partner with Pendry Hotels because of its strong, aspirational, design- and service-centric brand that will deliver a uniquely modern sensibility and help Manhattan West come alive.”
