In New York’s Hudson Yards, The Set by Related Companies is a first-of-its-kind hybrid between a residential and luxury hotel building. The 270-unit space was designed by Handel Architects with interiors by MAWD, and can serve as a home, home-base, social club, or professional workspace. Now, just in time for the warm summer weather, The Set is opening its new rooftop pool and garden as part of The Set Club.
"From the expertly furnished residences, sky-high office suite, resident-only restaurant, to the tailored programming and events, The Set will bring a renewed way of living to Manhattan's West Side," said Jeff T. Blau, CEO of Related Companies, in a statement about the building’s opening late last year.
Comprised of the top floors, The Set Club is an exclusive space for residents with the intent of fostering community. These levels feature a restaurant and bar helmed by Chef Dan Kluger, the brand new pool and garden, private office spaces, regular programming, and more. With this latest outdoor addition to the floor, residents and guests are invited to take a dip before dining poolside with bites off the James Beard Award-winning chef’s menu and viewing the commissioned Ned Kahn art piece, a kinetic installation featuring small metal pieces that harness the wind to create motion and a colorful illusion.
Spread across the three designated amenity floors, there is also a demonstration kitchen and lounge space, private dining room, game room, screening room, barbeque-ready terrace, and virtual reality space with a golf simulator and VR games. The wellness floor contains a gym, yoga studio, and virtual fitness room.
Each residence is complete with nine-foot ceilings, oak wood flooring, and expansive windows, and some come fully furnished, as residents are able to choose from a selection of furniture and accessories, as well as art curated by the contemporary art gallery and marketplace Sugarlift. Artwork on site includes pieces by Kenny Nguyen and Carla Cascales. Services, like weekly housekeeping, grocery delivery, dry-cleaning, and room service, also come included.
