Aman's first urban residence

Aman New York, Manhattan

Luxury hotel group Aman has announced the opening of a new urban sanctuary in one of the most architecturally significant buildings in Manhattan.

Aman New York, scheduled to open in 2020, will occupy the iconic Crown Building and will comprise not only of guest rooms and suites, but will also house the first urban Aman Residences, a collection of just 20 private homes.

Situated in the heart of Manhattan and overlooking Central Park, the Crown Building at 730 Fifth Avenue represents a unique opportunity for Aman, its guests and permanent residents.

Formerly the first home of the Museum of Modern Art, the Crown Building will undergo a monumental transformation, which will see it fully restored to its original splendour and imbued with the spirit of Aman.

This exclusive address will be infused with the Aman way of living, centered on understated, elegant and architecturally designed environments.

Aman New York will occupy the entire building, excluding the retail space on the first three floors. It will comprise 83 elegant guest rooms and suites, three principal social dining venues, a spa extending over three storeys, 19 private Aman Residences on the upper floors, plus an extensive, one-of-a-kind, five-storey, park-view Penthouse at the building’s apex.

Offering unprecedented privacy with uninterrupted views of Central Park, the Penthouse will have a wraparound terrace and indoor and outdoor swimming pools. All residences, some with sweeping outdoor terraces with heated pools, will be fully serviced by Aman, and residents will have access to a Members’ Lounge, in addition to the use of all hotel facilities.

The crowning glory of Aman New York will be its broad selection of vibrant public spaces and social venues at which Aman’s intuitive and welcoming service will appeal not only to guests and residents, but also New Yorkers.

Headlining these will be its 10th-floor wraparound Garden Terrace – a rare find in one of the most densely populated cities in the world – encompassing a bar with panoramic views of Central Park, and a Cigar Bar.

A stylish Piano Bar in the Sky Lobby, two restaurants – including Aman’s recently introduced Japanese culinary concept, Nama – plus the Wine Library (which will be available for private wine tastings and events), and a subterranean Jazz Club will all establish the hotel as a destination in itself, interwoven into the fabric of the city.

There will also be an Aman Members’ Club, housing facilities exclusively for the use of its Members.

This new urban sanctuary, together with its fully serviced Aman Residences, will open in 2020 and will see a piece of the city’s architectural history, reimagined for the 21st century.
