The Spa at 515 East 72nd Street to Open March 2011 under the Management of American Leisure
New York, NY (January 10, 2011) – 515 East 72 nd Street, the Upper East Side’s signature luxury condominium, has announced that American Leisure, an internationally recognized leader of premier lifestyle centers and spas including The Setai Wall Street and The Hotel Plaza Athenee, has been named the building’s new lifestyle and spa management company. With over 30 years of experience, American Leisure has become synonymous with world-class lifestyle facilities, fitness centers and spas in the Tri-State area, as well as overseas.
“We are excited to welcome American Leisure as part of the 515 East 72 nd Street community, and are confident that they will provide the best possible facility and lifestyle options for our residents,” said James Sheehan, 515 East 72 nd Street Project Manager. “We expect American Leisure will provide the same level of service and attention to detail that has made our building such a success.”
Exclusive to 515 East 72 nd Street residents, the on-site spa is being furnished for a March 2011 opening, and will provide a full array of spa offerings, to compliment the already complete schedule of lifestyle, fitness and wellness programs being offered to the residents. American Leisure will also provide two on-site lifestyle specialists supported by a full complement of staff available to help each resident create a personalized program based upon wellness and other lifestyle and social components, to ensure that the spa experience is on par with that of the finest resorts and hotels worldwide. The spa will feature products by June Jacobs, the luxurious natural collection used internationally at spa destinations, including both The Setai Wall Street and The Four Seasons Hotel and Resorts.
“The magnitude of the facilities available and level of luxury that 515 East 72 nd Street offers will allow us the opportunity to implement our expertise and provide a selection of programs, services and events that are without parallel in Manhattan,” said Steve Kass, CEO of American Leisure.
“The announcement of American Leisure as our new spa and lifestyle manager has been well received by current residents, as they can also anticipate the portion of their common charges for the fitness center and spa to be reduced by about 40 percent,” said Elaine Diratz, Senior Managing Director of Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group, who is handling the sales and marketing for the development. “The building has continued to experience an incredible amount of traffic, resulting in approximately $45 million in sales volume, with deals totaling $8 million in the first week of December alone.”
To further complete the luxurious environment at 515 East 72 nd Street, residents also have access to the expansive 40,000-square-foot amenities package, which touts an on-site state-of-the-art fitness facility, competition-sized pool, indoor rock-climbing wall, and half-court for basketball and racquetball. Additionally, unveiled this past October at 515 East 72 nd Street was the building’s exclusive 20,000-square-foot private park, offering one of the largest on-premise private lawns in Manhattan. A picturesque sight from the building’s lobby, residents and guests can gaze upon the park and its three permanent sculptures by artist Martin Silverman. Residents can also expect in the New Year the completion of the café and lobby lounge, demonstration kitchen and children’s playroom featuring a full schedule of children’s programs, as well as the common amenity spaces.
