Furnished Quarters to Launch Q&A Brand in Manhattan’s Financial District

NEW YORK—Furnished Quarters revealed that its new residential hotel concept will be called Q&A, with the first property to open in spring 2015 at Manhattan’s 70 Pine in the Financial District. All suites will be full-sized, furnished, turnkey apartments—most with separate office space.

“In a fast-changing world, you need to be creative to be relevant,” notes Steve Brown, CEO of Furnished Quarters. “And, that’s just what we are doing with Q&A—providing short-stay, live-work suites within our hotel that feel like home and are available for shorter stays than traditional corporate apartments.”

Ranging from 450 to 1,400 sq. ft., 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.

Q&A at 70 Pine will offer 132 suites that will comprise four floors of the 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 rooftop lounge and signature restaurant. Guests will also have access 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. In addition to the hotel, more than 600 rental apartments, as well as restaurants and retail, will occupy the mixed-use building.
