Due to open its doors in spring 2021, as Central Park blushes pink with cherry blossoms, Aman New York signifies renewal on many levels and will breathe new life into Manhattan’s iconic Crown Building. For the brand, Aman New York represents the start of a new chapter – launching the very first urban Aman Residences worldwide.
Aman New York will be home to just 22 residences, over half of which have already pre-sold during construction, and offer consummate privacy. The fully serviced branded residences, which range from one to six bedrooms, will possess grand-scale functioning fireplaces in living and bedroom spaces.
At the crossroads of 57th and 5th Street, one of the finest corners in the world, the opening of Aman New York coincides with the Crown Building’s 100th anniversary. Aman New York will offer unparalleled service, world-class dining and entertainment venues, a comprehensive Aman Spa, and exclusive branded residences – the very first urban Aman Residences worldwide. Providing guests and residents with holistic wellbeing through Aman Wellness, Aman New York will finally bring the peace promised by Aman’s Sanskrit-derived name to one of the globe’s greatest cities.
Designed by renowned architect Jean-Michel Gathy of Denniston to pay homage to the Crown Building’s striking architecture, Aman New York is in its final stages of a monumental transformation which will see it restored and imbued with the spirit of Aman. A nod to the brand’s Asian roots, Gathy designed the hotel with the New York lifestyle in mind – an interactive place, in an extraordinary location. Aman New York will comprise of 83 elegant guest rooms and suites, which start at 70 square metres and each have a functioning fireplace – something of a rarity in New York.
In addition, Aman New York will house just 22 private branded residences, many with spacious outdoor terraces, including a one-of-a-kind, five storey penthouse. Guests and residents will have access to unrivalled facilities, including three principal dining venues, a jazz club, and the 2,300-square-metre Aman Spa and will also be home to an Aman Club for members.
Bringing authentic omakase (chef-chosen) washoku cuisine to Manhattan, Aman’s signature fine-dining Japanese restaurant, Nama, will serve exquisite sushi and sashimi at its live-cooking counter and on its outdoor terrace. The Wine Library, Aman New York’s wine cellar, will sit adjacent to Nama and will be available for private wine tastings and events. Arva, Aman’s signature Italian restaurant, will offer exceptional all-day dining both within the airy restaurant and on the wraparound garden terrace, which claims views of Central Park. Extending over three-storeys, the Aman Spa will be the brand’s new flagship Wellness Centre in the western hemisphere – a serene haven for hotel guests, residence owners and Aman Club members.
