Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown is scheduled to open in late summer in Lower Manhattan, a block from the World Trade Center. This will be the brand’s second location in the city, and will introduce the very first Manhattan restaurant by chef Wolfgang Puck.
Paying tribute to the city’s early 20th century architecture – with the Woolworth Building sharing the same city block as the property – architect Robert A.M. Stern created a new, 82-story skyscraper soaring 926 feet (282 meters) above the streets of Lower Manhattan. Downtown’s tallest residential building will also be home to its newest luxury hotel.
Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown’s two-story lobby will have wool carpeting, original artworks, wood walls and woven metal screens. There will also be brushed bronze accents and fabrics in jewel tones, as well as a suspended staircase.
The interiors were designed by Toronto and Soho-based Yabu Pushelberg.
Measuring an average 400 square feet (37 square meters) and ranging up to the 2,400 square foot (223 square meter) Royal Suite, each accommodation will have a living space with sofa, leather chair and multi-use table that can become a workspace, and a dining area. There will be a private pantry and mini-bar, as well as task lighting.
The opening of Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown will also mark the opening of the first restaurant of celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck in Manhattan. The steakhouse concept CUT by Wolfgang Puck – first introduced at Beverly Wilshire, Beverly Hills, A Four Seasons Hotel – will be accessed via the hotel or its own entrance around the corner on Church Street. This space will have interiors by French architect and designer Jacques Garcia. It will have an 86-seat main dining room as well as a 32-seat lounge with 10 seats at the bar. A private dining room will host up to 31 guests.
The Spa at Four Seasons was designed by Yabu Pushelberg, with white tay wood walls and floors of oak and travertine. Each of seven treatment rooms – including a couple’s suite – is dressed in organic lines.
Two-story windows will line the 75 foot (23 meter) lap pool.
There will also be a fitness center.
For events, the property will have the 2,990 square foot (275 square foot) Greenwich Ballroom. Like all meeting spaces at Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown, the room will be divisible, and will have a private pre-function area. There will be two additional salons – Chambers and Warren. In total, 6,848 square feet (636 square meters) of space will be available.
