Six Senses opening first North American property in BIG-designed NYC tower

by Jane Kitchen | 06 Oct 2016

Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas will debut in the US in 2019 with its first urban location, Six Senses New York, a luxury Bjarke Ingels-designed hotel being developed by HFZ Capital Group in New York City.

The flagship urban location is located between Manhattan’s popular High Line and the Hudson River on 10th Avenue, encompassing the entire block between 17th and 18th streets in the heart of Chelsea. The overall project, named The Eleventh, features two soaring towers created by Ingels' studio BIG.

“This project is a fascinating and exciting contrast to the typical Six Senses locations where we operate resorts in settings with azure waters, UNESCO heritage listings and lush rainforests,” said Neil Jacobs, CEO of Six Senses. “Six Senses New York will have the same touch-points and DNA, with some creative adaptation of course, but with no compromises on our commitment to community, wellness, sustainability and design. We are delighted to be partnering with HFZ on this fabulous urban development.”

The towers’ design, which features stone and metal facades, draws inspiration from New York City's classic Modernist structures and cultural institutions, while also playfully skewing the traditional skyscraper form with their rotating appearance.

The towers are approximately 300 and 400 feet (90 and 120 meters) tall – far taller than surrounding buildings – and create expansive vistas of the High Line, Hudson River and Downtown and Midtown skylines.

The hotel will be located in the east tower directly adjacent to the High Line with ten floors and 137 bedrooms.

“We are setting a new precedent for architecture, design and lifestyle in downtown Manhattan, in a world-class location squarely between the High Line and Hudson River,” said HFZ Capital Group chair and founder Ziel Feldman. “Six Senses will bring something completely unique to the New York City hospitality space while helping us realise our vision for The Eleventh. As a company we share in Six Senses' commitment to a forward-thinking, environmentally-conscious mentality that makes no compromise on quality and service, making this the perfect partnership."

Pegasus Capital Advisors L.P., a New York-based private equity fund, acquired Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas in 2012, and is partnering with HFZ in the development of the hotel.

The project is being planned with the intent to attain LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certification.

Six Senses Spa New York will offer a layered approach to wellness, with treatments that are a mix of science and human awareness, with a high-tech and high-touch approach that is crafted around the individual.

Two restaurants will be located in the hotel and showcase the brand’s culinary approach to wellness by serving fresh, seasonal and locally-sourced produce and ingredients.

Plans are also underway to create a private members club within the hotel and meeting space to cater to small groups and board meetings.
