Legendary hotel The Waldorf Astoria New York has always been known for hosting the world's most influential people from Queen Elizabeth to Grace Kelly. But what you might not know is that Marilyn Monroe lived at the hotel in 1955 while she was dating fellow actor Marlon Brando – staying in suite 2728 and paying $1,000 a week.
The iconic hotel is currently undergoing an unprecedented restoration introducing brand new luxury residences, The Towers of the Waldorf Astoria. This will allow discerning UHNWIs to invest in a slice of New York real estate history.
Unofficial 'home' to many well-known names over the years, this landmark hotel is often considered the birthplace of the 'hotel residence' - today known as a branded residence - with many individuals choosing to treat the hotel as a home and taking residency in its suites so as to have access to the famous around the clock Waldorf service.
Currently closed to the public, sales have now launched for the 375 residences which will sit atop the 375 key hotel as it reopens as the The Towers of the Waldorf Astoria, welcoming residents and guests in 2022.
I've added a few images below of that the residences will look like below, along with links to the virtual tours now available for GCC investors unable to travel and see the stunning spaces for themselves. I've also attached the sales press release which includes a more detailed look at the project including key designers.
