Poised to be one of Manhattan’s most prestigious addresses, Baccarat Hotel & Residences New York announced the official start of sales for Tony Ingrao-designed private residences inspired by the artisanship of the revered French crystal company. The luxury glassmaker announced also the opening of the second largest store in the world. The new flagship store will be located in New York, on Madison Avenue, covering over 250 sqm on 2 floors.
Designed by the award-winning architects of Skidmore Owings & Merrill, the 50-story glass tower of Baccarat Hotel & Residences New York will feature 61 private residences designed by Tony Ingrao that range in size from one- to four-bedrooms, including four full-floor units and one five-bedroom penthouse duplex with outdoor terrace. In addition, the tower will feature a luxury hotel, with 114 rooms including 26 suites, that will be the global flagship for Baccarat Hotels.
“Reflecting the elegance and prestige of Baccarat, the new Hotel & Residences will be a landmark destination in the heart of Manhattan,” said Barry Sternlicht , Chairman and CEO of Starwood Capital Group. “It will provide an unmatched experience for guests and residents to admire the company’s artisanship and commitment to perfection in both service and design.”
The residences will have a private entrance and feature sophisticated finishes that combine natural elements with contemporary concepts including: custom bronze-work crackled with crystal, modern furnishings and floor-to-ceiling windows that capture the natural light outside and reflect a shimmering brilliance throughout each space. A Baccarat chandelier will also be incorporated as a signature feature in the foyer of each residence.
The master bath is generously outfitted with a free-standing soaking tub, glass-enclosed shower and rich white marble, including the floor, walls and vanity. True to the brand’s commitment to perfection, only the finest brands and technology are incorporated throughout, Miele and Sub-Zero in the kitchens, LG washers and dryers, as well as Kallista wash basins. Each residence is also equipped with fully automated Crestron controls to adjust lighting, audio/visual, heating/cooling, and window shades.
Residential owners will have complete access to all luxury hotel amenities and services including personal concierge and housekeeping services, 24-hour in-residence dining and access to the beautifully designed spa, indoor pool and fitness facility. The luxury hotel will also feature a standalone “crystal bar” surrounded by an outdoor Tuileries-style terrace, and a bustling bar and restaurant, all of which will provide a luxury lifestyle experience unlike any other in Manhattan.
With prices ranging from $3.5 million to $60 million, Baccarat Residences offer layouts from approximately 1,000 square feet to 7,400 square feet, with the option for buyers to combine units.
