Furnished Quarters, the largest provider of temporary furnished apartments in New York and Boston, announced that its new residential hotel concept will be called “Q&A.”
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 70 Pine in the Financial District.
Rose Associates, the New York-based, full-service real estate firm, is developing 70 Pine with DTH Capital.
Q&A will occupy four contiguous floors of the skyscraper. In addition to the hotel, more than 600 rental apartments as well as restaurants and retail will occupy the mixed-use building.
“In a fast-changing world, you need to be creative to be relevant,” said 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 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 interior design.
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.
