AKA United Nations
New York City Condo Hotel
April 3, 2015
Hello. Joel Greene here from Condo Hotel Center.
Let’s start with a little trivia. You probably know the headquarters of the United Nations is located in New York City. But did you know that when you pass through the gates of the United Nations complex you enter international territory?
Technically, the 18-acre site is not in New York, nor does it belong to the U.S. or any one country, but to all countries that have joined the organization since its founding in 1945. Currently, the United Nations has 193 member states.
Today’s featured property is a condo hotel just a block or two from the UN headquarters. Even if you’re not a UN diplomat, you might find it appealing as a New York City residence with revenue potential to offset your costs of ownership. Read on for details.
Your NYC Home
AKA United Nations is a condo hotel project in New York City. It is located on East 46th Street, which is, as I said, just down the street from the United Nations headquarters. The property is an existing AKA branded hotel that was originally built as long-stay corporate apartments in 1986. Now it is being renovated and the apartments will be sold to individual investors.
The property will be of four-star quality when the renovation is complete. Boutique in size, the 21-story building will have just 95 condo hotel units.
AKA United Nations will feature a 24-hour front desk, doorman and concierge services. It will also offer a full complement of amenities including the following:
- Sleek and welcoming lobby
- Beautifully landscaped outdoor terrace with café seating and garden
- Café area with complimentary gourmet coffee
- Technogym fitness center
- Business center, fully equipped
- High-speed internet Wi-Fi in amenity spaces
Condo Hotel Unit Features
All of the condo hotel units at AKA United Nations will be one-bedroom suites but in a variety of floor plans.
They’ll offer unrivalled views of Manhattan. Other features include:
- Private balconies with spectacular skyline views
- Wide-plank white oak hardwood flooring
- European-style kitchens with stainless steel appliances, Celador countertops, Carrara backsplash and custom cabinets
- Bathrooms with Carrara marble, walk-in glass showers, Grohe fixtures
The condo hotel units will be delivered with designer furnishings and fully-equipped kitchens.
In the Heart of NYC
AKA United Nations is superbly situated in one of New York City’s most sophisticated and established neighborhoods, Turtle Bay. It is nestled on a quiet, residential street in a community with an international flair, courtesy of the many diplomats working at the United Nations nearby.
The area, called Midtown East by locals, is a great choice for travelers interested in art, shopping, dining and business. It is just a short walk to parks, museums, stores, restaurants and Grand Central Station.
No Living Restrictions
Many condo hotels limit the amount of time the owners can use their units. The remaining time the units must be placed in the rental program. AKA United Nations has no living restrictions.
You may live there year round, as the condos have full kitchen facilities, or you may place your unit into the rental program when you’re not there and receive a share of the revenue it generates, helping to offset your costs of ownership.
AKA United Nations is being completely remodeled and will reopen late summer 2015. The one-bedroom condo hotel units will range from 562 to 663 square feet. The prices will range from $1,200,000 to $1,500,000. Nobody ever said living in New York City was cheap.
At this time, the developer is only accepting an Expression of Interest Form; no deposit required. Once the pricing for each of the various floor plans has been established, holders of these forms will be able to pick their condo hotel unit in the order their forms were received. A deposit at that time will secure your reservation.
