The Gansevoort Hotel Group, known for pioneering the rooftop pool, will open its fourth, and most upscale property this summer, with the opening of Gansevoort Park in New York.The 249-room urban resort promises an uptown experience with a downtown vibe, while elevating the rooftop pool to new heights.
Built from the ground up on what had formerly been Marathon bank, the Gansevoort Park will feature generously proportioned guest rooms and suites, many with balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows, a heated indoor-outdoor pool; six event spaces; unobstructed views of the Empire State Building; ballroom, a duplex corner retail space and salon and a health and fitness spa.
Architect Stephen B. Jacobs and interior designer Andi Pepper will design the dramatic three-story lobby, guestrooms, penthouse suite and pool area. Manhattan-based ICRAVE is designing Asellina (an Italian trattoria) and the bar.
Gansevoort Park’s design is decidedly contemporary with some classical references and inspiration drawn from a peek-a-boo aesthetic of 1940’s glam. Photographer Deborah Anderson’s sensual art will be integrated throughout the hotel on walls, table tops and in guest rooms.
