Seen & Heard: Four Seasons Details

DK on Tuto••• Donna Karan tweeted about visiting the new Franklin Street restaurant that her daughter, Gabby, is opening—one assumed it was to be called Tutto Il Giorno, as its Hamptons brethren are, but maybe not? (Or maybe it’s a typo?) The Instagram link was to a selfie.

••• There’s a public meeting on Monday about resiliency after storms like Sandy. See image at right for details.

••• Apexart”s “Scaryoke!” exhibit involves a night, this Wednesday, when “some of NYC’s top culture critics” perform in a karaoke contest—”but we’re switching up the rules; we’re giving each singer a chance to pick their song.”

••• Jasmine Hubjer tweeted that Yabu Pushelberg is designing the Four Season Hotel and Private Residences New York Downtown, a.k.a. 99 Church and 30 Park Place. Yabu Pushelberg also did the Smyth, among many other projects. Below is a lobby plan that I came across on the Silverstein website, along with this text:

The Four Seasons Hotel New York, Downtown [Ugh, that comma. —Ed.] will occupy the first 21 floors of the 82-story tower, which will also include a specialty restaurant operated by the Four Seasons. The remainder of the tower […] will accommodate private residences as large as 6,000 square feet. The Residences also will be managed by the Four Seasons.

A separate entrance and lobby at 30 Park Place serves the Residences. Amenities for the private residents are located between the Hotel and Residences and include a 75-ft heated indoor pool, fitness center, lounge area, and children’s room. The project also will include a landscaped plaza.

The Hotel entrance on Barclay Street leads visitors into three floors of lobbies, lounges, restaurant, ballrooms, private screening room and meeting facilities, as well as a spa, fitness center and pool. A second entrance to the restaurant is on Church Street.
