Smyth Hotel - newest addition to NYC Financial District
We’ve done a ton of commercial projects over the last couple of years, including lobbies, lounges, clubs, etc. But, the behemoth project of ours is the Smyth Hotel in New York City. 65 rooms of the Smyth Hotel will contain our new and improved Womb Chair, which we will reintroduce early Fall.
The new Womb Chair will come in wool, microfiber, and leather. We listened to you guys and made the following upgrades:
- Increased upholstery thickness on the wool – the new wool will be 5x the thickness as our original chair.
- New support system – we’ve designed a stainless steel cross bar spanning the width of the chair for added support and durability.
- Nylon articulating feet – perfect for leveling out uneven surfaces and protecting your precious floors.
- New cushion structure – cushions affixed in place via snaps to prevent sliding.
If you’re interested in the new Womb Chair, make sure to send us an email to email@example.com and we’ll add you on the list for the exclusive launch.
Now, back to the Smyth Hotel. Here’s a NY Post article on the Smyth Hotel:
By BRADEN KEIL
Hotelier Jason Pomeranc is bringing one of his cutting-edge hotels to the border of the Financial District.
And this time he’s adding residential units to the mix. The owner of the Thompson hotel in SoHo, who also runs other celebrity-friendly places including the Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles, is about to begin construction of the Smyth hotel at 85 West Broadway at Chambers Street.
The 100-room hotel, with interior design by Richardson Sidecki, will open in winter 2008 and will include 15 one- and two-bedroom residential apartments priced between $1 million and $5 million.
Beginning in March, the condominiums on the top floors of the 14-story building will be available for purchase through real estate firm Stribling & Associates. Pomeranc stresses the residences are not condo/hotel condos, which are eligible to be placed into a hotel pool and rented out when the owners are out of town. “This is going to be an individual’s home or second home that will have more of a degree of privacy,” he says. “This way buyers can create their own style with their own furniture while having all the advantages of a hotel, such as room service and maid service.”
The hotel will feature a gym, spa services and a multi-level restaurant with a lounge and cellar bar. Pomeranc says he wants the restaurant to have a neighborhood feel “not necessarily the same but in the style of what the Odeon was in its heyday.”
There will also be a public rooftop bar, while residence owners will have communal rooftop space.
Other hotels in the works for Pomeranc’s group include the 6 Columbus that’s still under construction across from the Time Warner Center, as well as properties on the Lower East Side.
