Furnished Quarters, the largest provider of temporary furnished apartments in New York and Boston, announced today that its new residential hotel concept will be called “Q&A.” The hotel brand pays homage to creativity, innovation, and providing solutions for today’s business traveler. All suites will be full-sized, furnished, turnkey apartments-most with separate office space. Q&A expects to open its doors in spring 2015 at Manhattan’s iconic 70 Pine in the Financial District.
Q&A derives its namesake from questions posed by corporate travel managers and business travelers-how can I be more productive? How can I save money for my firm? How can I stay in an apartment in NY for less than 30 days? Q&A puts forth the answers with its new residential hotel solution.
Ranging from 450 to 1,400 square feet, Q&A’s suites will be more than twice the size of a typical New York City hotel room and each will contain a fully equipped kitchen. Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz-the designer behind the Mondrian Soho Hotel in New York City and the Mondrian Hotel in Los Angeles-in conjunction with Furnished Quarters’ in-house design team, is responsible for all facets of Q&A’s interior design, blending contemporary decor with custom furnishings that inspire thought and imagination.
Q&A at 70 Pine will offer 132 suites that will comprise four floors of the historic Art Deco skyscraper in studio, one- and two-bedroom configurations. Hotel services at the location will include complimentary continental breakfast, concierge services, and preferential access to the exclusive rooftop lounge and signature restaurant. Guests will also enjoy entry to an on-site luxury fitness facility, a fully equipped business center, both shared and private work and conference spaces, and valet laundry and dry cleaning services.
Rose Associates, the New York-based, full-service real estate firm, is developing 70 Pine with DTH Capital. Q&A will be an integral element within the building, occupying four contiguous floors of this soaring skyscraper. In addition to the hotel, more than 600 rental apartments as well as restaurants and retail will occupy this mixed-use building.
