Eventi rental floors to be called “the Beatrice”

The Eventi Hotel at 835 Sixth Avenue is now up and running, but few
details have been released about the 302 rental apartments in the
building.

Citi Habitats, which will be handling leasing at the site, gave The Real Deal
a glimpse of what’s ahead. While the hotel occupies the first 24 floors
of the project, floors 25 to 53 will be rental units known as “the
Beatrice,” according to Clifford Finn, the managing director of new
development marketing at Citi Habitats.

Located on Sixth Avenue between 28th and 29th streets, the Beatrice
includes studios and one- and two-bedroom apartments, he said, and
several penthouse units with private outdoor space. The residential
tower, which has a separate entrance from the hotel, comes with “a
wonderful amenity space” and a roof deck, he said. Leasing is expected
to start within the next three weeks.

Finn said he didn’t yet have pricing information and developer JD Carlisle was not available for comment.

The hotel, which is under the Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants brand, has 292 guest rooms and opened in May. The residential units were initially slated to be condos, but Curbed reported in July 2009 that the units would be rentals instead.
