TheRealDeal presents Solly Assa and Cassa Hotel

  • The 48-floor Cassa NYC Hotel and Residences is located at 70 West 45th Street between Fifth Avenue and Avenue of the Americas. With its distinctive, white-obelisk contours, the eye-catching venue was designed by award-winning architect Enrique Norten of TEN Arquitectos, one of Mexico’s leading architecture firms, and CetraRuddy. The base is a full-service, 27-floor, luxury hotel with 165 guest rooms, all of which offer the refined luxury and relaxed residential vibe of an elegant Manhattan apartment. The hotel is topped by 21 floors comprising of rental or condo units offering premium, a la carte hotel services to their residents. The peak of Cassa Hotel and Residences consists of three ultra-luxe penthouses, only accessible by key-operated elevators and boasting 360-degree views of Manhattan. Perhaps the most alluring aspect of these penthouses – they were each designed as part of Showtime’s Showhouse for California Home & Design Awards, where top interior designers paid homage to their favorite Showtime series, including Weeds, Dexter, Californication and Nurse Jackie. The homes still feature the general aesthetic of the designs and many of the original attributes of the showcase, including a hanging platform bed which is now used as a table. The one-of- a-kind penthouses go for about $19 million, with one currently on the market. To rent one of these premium spaces prices range from $35,000 – $75,000 a month. - Solly Assa
