Residences Offer Luxury Hotel Services and Amenities
NEW YORK, NY–(Marketwire – July 22, 2010) – Set to open on August 1, Cassa Hotel and Residences is the newest iconic building in the heart of midtown Manhattan created by world renowned architect — Enrique Norten of TEN Arquitectos in collaboration with the prestigious architecture and interior design firm of CetraRuddy. Closings of the 57 luxurious residences, located on the 28th to 47th floors atop the hotel, with spectacular views of New York City skyline and landmarks, will commence in the coming weeks. Situated on 45th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, you are at the pulse of a world class shopping experience, the bright lights of the theatre district, and in close proximity to the finest galleries and museums in the world.
The residences comprise 20 studios, 20 one-bedroom and 14 two-bedroom suites and luxurious penthouse apartments on floors 47-48. Floor plans range from studios that start at 584 square feet to the penthouse level suites with up to 3,145 feet of living space. Prices for the residences range from $949,000 to $18 million. “With its unique design by one of the world’s preeminent architects, combined with exceptional services and amenities, Cassa is destined to become one of New York’s most desirable addresses for discerning buyers. This area of Manhattan remains the heartbeat of the city for the international traveler,” says Solly Assa, President and CEO of Assa Properties.
“We are anticipating a number of closings in the coming weeks as units are in the final phases of construction. Purchasers are now able to step into the units and witness the light, materials and textures coming together,” says Rodrigo Niño, President of Prodigy Network.
Cassa Residences feature open airy living spaces and boast gourmet kitchens with white lacquer cabinetry and Miele and Liebeherr appliances. The sumptuous master baths and powder rooms include glacier glass tiles, limestone floors, vanities with honed travertine countertops, and polished chrome fixtures. Windows offer a unique view of New York City life: some frame the iconic Chrysler Building while others offer sweeping views south to the Statue of Liberty with unobstructed views beginning at the 33rd floor. Public spaces will feature a unique vertical garden in the lobby level courtyard and a 10th floor lounge provides two separate cocktail terraces.
Cassa Residences provides an array of hotel services as a privilege of ownership that include a five star restaurant offering in-room dining from Restaurant 1945 with a menu focusing on healthy, organic, simple reinterpretations of Mid-Century American cuisine. Residents have access to a superb fitness studio and a 24-hour doorman and concierge service. Additional hotel services are available a la carte including dry cleaning, laundry and housekeeping. The concierge staff will order fresh flowers and groceries, make arrangements for spa and wellness treatments, valet and pet care. Residents can enjoy all of the conveniences of a luxury hotel in the privacy and comfort of their own apartment.
