We've been following the progress of Trump SoHo since way back in 2006 and now the hotel component of the project at 246 Spring Street has an opening date. The hotel will open on April 9. The 46-story silver-glass building is a 391-unit hotel and condominium building.
As the NY Times mentioned last month, owners in the project are only allowed to use their units for under 120 days a year and no more than 29 consecutive days. The idea is that most buyers are using their condos as second or third residences. The units are being sold outright at over one million for a studio and must be rented out for the rest of the time. The reason for the odd living arrangement is that the building is in a manufacturing zone which is zoned for hotels and not residences.
The hotel has enviable views of the city's spectacular skyline, the Hudson River, Statue of Liberty and Empire State Building and the rooms and suites have floor-to-ceiling windows. High end appurtenances include furnishings by Fendi Casa and custom bedding by Bellino. The hotel also has a heated pool with private cabanas and an adjacent bar, a spa that includes a hammam and Quattro Gastronomia Italiana, an Italian restaurant that also offers room service. The Bazaar lounge is the place for nightlife and a library stocked with art and design books by Taschen will offer a cozy place to relax. Promotional rates start at $389 per night.
