Iconic Six Senses Resort for Big Apple
New York City – 6 October 2016
It could be come the hotel landmark of Manhattan – At Chelsea Pier in the High Line district, a 137-key ultra-luxury Six Senses resort is under construction. As part of a mixed-use development project at 76 11th Avenue along New York City’s famed High Line park, hotel investor HFZ Capital Group targets to open the city resort with a large spa and condominium residences above in 2019.
The overall project, named The Eleventh and slated to open in 2019, features two soaring towers between the High Line and Hudson River designed by award-winning architecture firm, BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group). The towers will be the tallest buildings in West Chelsea at approximately 300 and 400 feet tall, creating 360-degree expansive vistas of the High Line, Hudson River and downtown and midtown Manhattan skylines.
Six Senses currently operates 10 resorts and 28 spas within a portfolio of inspiring destinations informed by the brand’s dedication to marrying wellness and sustainability with uncompromised high-end facilities and services.
Pegasus Capital Advisors L.P., the New York-based private equity fund that acquired Six Senses Hotels Reports Spas in 2012, is also a partner in the development project with HFZ.
