ATLANTA—IHG’s Hotel Indigo brand has signed its fifth location in New York City in the Financial District.
“The financial district has long been known for its commercial success, but it’s recently experienced significant cultural and residential growth, and we are so proud that we’re becoming part of the neighborhood,” stated Mary Winslow, director, Hotel Indigo brand management. “Everyone knows that on Wall Street, time is money, but a lot of people may not know about the area’s history in clock and watchmaking. We can’t wait to show our guests how special this neighborhood really is.” According to the company, the hotel’s design will pay homage to how time has shaped the precision work done in the area, from its roots in engraving, jewelry and watchmaking to the trading on today’s Wall Street.
Set to open in 2016, the 76,500-sq.-ft., new-build hotel will be a block from the new One World Trade Center. The hotel’s ownership is investing $32 million in the 25-story, 190-room hotel, which will feature approximately 1,450 sq. ft. of meeting space, a fitness center and a rooftop lounge. Guestrooms will feature plush bedding, hard-surface flooring with area rugs and spa-inspired bathrooms.
The hotel will feature the brand’s new Neighborhood Guide, a touchscreen display that connects guests to each other, the local neighborhood and to Hotel Indigo locations around the world.
This will be the fifth Hotel Indigo hotel in New York City. The brand currently has locations in Brooklyn and Chelsea, with two additional properties planned for the Lower East Side and Flushing, Queens.
“We are also developing the Hotel Indigo project in Flushing, and we look forward to continuing our relationship with IHG,” stated Thomas Wang, 10-12 MLane, LLC.
The Hotel Indigo NYC Financial District, owned by 10-12 MLane, LLC, will be franchised by an affiliate of IHG.
