Man 600 feet is nothing compared to the ESB and this could easily be the tallest building where I'm from hmm.

The Setai Fifth Avenue, A Capella Managed Hotel, To Open November 1, 2010



21 April 2010

Quote:
The Setai-branded hotel, slated to open November 1, 2010, will be managed by Capella Hotels and Resorts with the impeccable high standards that Capella provides to the world’s most discerning guests and travelers. It represents Capella’s first foray into the New York City hotel market, and its third urban property worldwide.

“The Setai Fifth Avenue will be a fitting addition to the midtown landscape – a visual complement to the neighborhood’s many landmarks and one that promises unequalled hospitality,” said Davide Bizzi, chairman of the tower’s developer, Bizzi & Partners Development, LLC. “In one of the world’s most competitive hotel markets, we believe that Capella Hotels and Resorts is uniquely qualified to raise the bar even higher on the New York City guest experience.”

Distinctive New York Dining
Located on the second floor, and accessed by an elliptical staircase rising from the lobby, the restaurant of The Setai Fifth Avenue is destined to compete with New York City’s finest. It will showcase flavors of the Mediterranean and Riviera in a sophisticated, casual setting. With its own entrance on Fifth Avenue, the Bar at Fifth will cater to the after-work urbanite crowd and will serve as a stylish setting for a light breakfast, lunch or dinner as well. In-room dining will be available around the clock.

Spa with an Accent on Couples
Spanning the entire fourth floor of The Setai Fifth Avenue, at more than 11,500 square feet, the spa will transcend the typical urban wellness facility. It will feature 11 private treatment rooms, including four wet rooms ideal for couples treatments. Co-ed wet thermal and relaxation areas, including a lounge with juice bar, will invite couples to relax together before and after treatments. The aquatic area will include two experiential showers, a vitality pool, sauna, steam, an ice cave and a social hamam. The spa will also feature an exclusive salon with separate areas for men and women. A full array of beauty and styling services will be offered, including manicures and pedicures. Classic shaves will be among the services available in the men’s grooming salon.

Expansive Fitness Center
A dedicated staircase will lead down from the spa to the hotel’s fitness center. At 3,100 square feet, this spacious facility will feature top-of-the-line equipment by Technogym, including a full complement of treadmills, ellipticals, rowing machines and stationary bikes. Nautilus and free weights will also be available, and a separate exercise room will be the setting for group classes in yoga, pilates and other fitness disciplines.

Exclusive Event Space
Also on the third floor will be The Setai Fifth Avenue’s meeting space, dedicated to high-level executive gatherings and exclusive social events of up to 300 attendees (180 seated). It will feature a 2,394-square-foot meeting and banquet Salon that can serve as one large room or be divided into three rooms ranging from 513 to 1,064 square feet. A separate Boardroom, with its own foyer, will accommodate 12 people. All meeting space will be backed by the latest audiovisual technology and the expert services of the Capella staff.


Residential Condominiums
Topping the 60-floor tower, starting at the 31st floor, will be 190 luxurious Manhattan residential condominiums. These will be accessed by a separate residential entrance at Fifth Avenue and 36th Street. As with the hotel rooms, the residential interiors will be designed by DAS Concepts, Inc., a company which has won international acclaim for its work.

That's a great photo of New York, reminds me of how most of the city used to look before the black and glass boxes came along with their totally anonymous banality!

it should be over 200m, it was mentioned that the last floor is on an altitude of 192m and if you look at the top of the building it must be over 8m tall. So IMO this one if definately a skyscraper and not a highrise.

yes, the height to the last occupied floor is 193m. then we have the roof + crown, so definitely over 200m. i'm going to do some research regarding the exact height when i got more time...

I think you've got to check out Macy's in Herald Square and then Bloomingdales at E. 59th. You could window-shop in places like Tiffany's and Saks 5th Avenue. Downtown near Delancey Street you can get designer stuff at good discounts. Many of those stores are closed on Saturday because they are run by Orthodox Jews.
