Concord Hospitality will welcome AC Hotel New York Downtown in the financial district to their portfolio in summer 2018. Construction is underway at the 274-room hotel under the direction real estate firm LCRE Partners.

AC Hotel New York Downtown will be located in lower Manhattan in close proximity to the World Trade Center, Seaport District and Pier 17. The property features a combination of European design and comfort, staples of the AC Hotel brand.

“While we have developed many hotels in the past 33 years, it is a special privilege to partner with friends and respected colleagues from Marriott and LCRE to bring the AC Hotel brand to life in New York,” Mark Laport, president and CEO of Concord Hospitality, said in a statement. “This new hotel enriches our shared vision with Marriott to create irresistible places within vibrant communities, and we believe it will be very successful.”

The 33-story hotel will include guestrooms with minimalist designs to complement the waterfront views of the Seaport, local artwork accents, Spanish tapas at AC Kitchen and handcrafted cocktails at the AC Lounge. There will be an independent restaurant located on the hotel’s first floor, which will be announced later this spring.

“The development of the Seaport District has the whole neighborhood buzzing and we are thrilled to be a part of the transformation," Craig Kepple, GM of the AC Hotel New York Downtown, said in a statement. “Our team is very excited to help bring new experiences to our guests and to become an integral part of the community.”
