citizenM to open NYC flagship

George Sell George Sell Uploaded 11 September 2018


US: citizenM is preparing to open citizenM New York Bowery, a 300-room sister hotel to the citizenM New York Times Square.

The new location, which is now taking reservations from 12th September, will be the tallest building in the neighbourhood, standing 246 feet high on the oldest thoroughfare in Manhattan, with an expansive cloudM rooftop bar, outdoor terrace, and spectacular views of New York. Occupying the entire 21st floor, cloudM features oak cabinets, Vitra chairs and couches, and chandeliers "so large, they'll catch the eye of pedestrians on the street".
The hotel is designed by Amsterdam-based firm Concrete, a long-time partner of citizenM. Its design for the Bowery "is - as usual - unmistakably citizenM, without duplicating anything they've done before".

Rattan Chadha, the founder of citizenM, says: "When we were looking for our next New York location, it became clear very quickly that Bowery is an exceptional destination. We don't want to be just another building; we want to become part of the neighbourhood's fabric while showing New York's visitors a different side of the city. Even the art we use will be drawn from the local art scene, as well as international contributors." 

By 2020, the brand will have around 40 properties either open or in development globally - more than doubling its current portfolio. In North America alone, citizenM plans to open a dozen hotels, in major cities that include Seattle, Boston, Washington DC, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Miami.
