Location Is Great But Amenities Are Even Better

If you’re in the market for a fantastic place to live in NYC, the new luxury condos at Baccarat Hotel & Residences are worth checking out.

The building at 20 W. 53 St. is close to Rockefeller Center to the south and Central Park to the north. Getting around Manhattan from the Baccarat is easy thanks to its proximity to subway stations.

The 50-story building has 61 residential units that all enjoy lots of hotel amenities and services accessible from a touch-screen in each unit or from a mobile device.

Amenities include

  • Housekeeping

  • Child care

  • Personal shopping

  • Pet care

  • Floral delivery

Lots Of Room

A one-bedroom condo at Baccarat has 1,167 square feet, and five-bedroom unit has 7,381 square feet. There are plenty of sizes in between. All units have a chandelier in the entryway, says Candace Taylor of The Wall Street Journal.

With the spa, restaurant, pool, fitness facility and personal training, residents may never leave the Baccarat, except to walk across the street to visit the Museum of Modern Art. Of course, there is plenty of high-end shopping to be done on Madison Avenue and 5th Avenue. Who needs a car, when the stores are only blocks away?

If residents do in fact have cars, there is on-site parking at the Baccarat.

Chevalier Restaurant

The French restaurant boasts celebrity corporate chef Shea Gallante. But the atmosphere and interior design make the venue memorable even beyond the food.

Residents of the Baccarat enjoy room service in addition to the convenient location of the restaurant.

Breakfast Reading

If the restaurant is too much of a scene for residents, The Grand Salon on the second floor offers breakfast, afternoon cocktails and a library.

After 4 p.m., residents can enter the exclusive Petit Salon, which features a cognac bar and music played on a vintage gramophone.

Buyers’ Market

Nowadays, luxury units in NYC average 345 days on the market, according to The Real Deal. Now is the time to buy, while prices are low. The Baccarat has amenities and a location other properties cannot beat. The Baccarat full-floor units are a much better deal than those in other boroughs.

Yes, Jim Carrey’s old clock tower unit remains vacant and has no spa or pool in the building, and it’s still not in Manhattan. He should have bought one of the new luxury condos in the Baccarat. If one is paying for a luxury condo, more than a nice view should be expected.

The Baccarat Hotel & Residences is in Midtown Manhattan at the center of the action and offers some of the best new luxury condos in NYC. To find out more about the units, check out the Baccarat website.
