Four Seasons Hotel Debuts Downtown

NEW YORK — Four Seasons has opened a new luxury hotel in downtown Manhattan in a building owned by Silverstein Properties. This is the second Four Seasons hotel in NY with the original at 57 E. 57th Street near Central Park.

Located at 27 Barclay Street, the Four Seasons Downtown hotel occupies the bottom third of the 926-foot, 82-story tower.  Known for its five-star services, experiences, and amenities, Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown is also home to CUT by Wolfgang Puck, the celebrity chef’s first restaurant in New York City.

There are 189 guest rooms and suites in the hotel. Rates start at $549 per night. Suites with terrace are priced over $2,000 per night.

Larry Silverstein, Chairman of Silverstein Properties, said, “The opening of Four Seasons Hotel Downtown is the capstone on a banner year for Lower Manhattan.  This year we opened the World Trade Center transportation hub, along with dozens of new shops and restaurants.  Downtown has fully returned as a premier place for business, and visitors are coming to Lower Manhattan in record numbers.  In addition, the residential neighborhood around us has become a model of what is best and most exciting about New York.”

Silverstein is also developer for the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan.

Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown offers Downtown’s growing business and visitor communities a high level of service and style unique to the area. The Hotel consists of 185 rooms designed by Yabu Pushelberg, the restaurant, bar, full-service spa and health club with pool. Over one-quarter of the hotel rooms are suites, including a 3,700-square-foot royal suite.

“This is a remarkable hotel, one that draws inspiration from the vibrant architecture, culture and energy of Lower Manhattan, capturing the spirit of this dynamic and evolving neighborhood,” said J. Allen Smith, President and CEO, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “We are proud to partner with Silverstein Properties in bringing Robert Stern’s world-class vision to life and are excited to welcome New Yorkers and the world to Lower Manhattan to experience luxury hospitality, Four Seasons style.”

The tower shares a city block with the Woolworth Building, Cass Gilbert’s iconic 1913 skyscraper. With its limestone base and cast stone shaft that rises to a dramatic skyline profile of full-floor penthouses and setback terraces, the new tower has already become a distinctive landmark on the city’s iconic skyline.

The residences at 30 Park Place — known as Four Seasons Private Residences — include 157 luxury condominiums, some as large as 6,500 square feet. Amenities include a 75-foot heated indoor pool, fitness center, lounge area, and children’s room. Residents have a private entrance and lobby at 30 Park Place.

Silverstein Properties has sold over 75% of the residences. A one-bedroom unit is available for $3.65 million. Penthouse suites are available from $18 million to $30 million.

The hotel entrance at 27 Barclay Street leads visitors into four floors of lobbies, lounges, the CUT restaurant and bar, ballrooms, and meeting facilities, as well as a spa, fitness center and pool. The restaurant also has a direct entrance at 99 Church Street.  A through-block landscaped public plaza is located on the hotel’s eastern side, framed by a lower annex building that conceals building services and access to below-grade parking.
