Aman Resorts has been beloved by Andrew Harper members for more than 25 years. The original properties were small, exquisite retreats in Asia. Lately, however, the group has expanded to include city hotels, the first of which, Aman Tokyo, opened in 2014.
This trend looks to continue with the opening of Aman New York in 2020. The new urban resort will be located in Manhattan’s famous 26-story Crown Building, which has stood at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 57th Street since 1921. The property will have 83 rooms and suites, each measuring at least 750 square feet. The finances of the development will be underpinned by 20 residences, one of which is likely to be priced in excess of $100 million. In addition to a vast three-story spa, with an 80-foot indoor swimming pool surrounded by fire pits and daybeds, the Aman New York will have a jazz club, Japanese and Italian restaurants, a cigar bar and a wine library.
