The 250-room Ritz-Carlton New York, NoMad, will open in 2021 in New York City's NoMad (for North of Madison Square Park) neighborhood. The 500-foot tower, which will also have 16 residences, is being developed by Flag Luxury Group at cost of more than $500,000, with a design by architect Rafael Vinoly and interior design firm Yabu Pushelberg. The hotel will be the second Ritz-Carlton-branded property in Manhattan, joining the 259-room Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park.
The few details available at press time reveal that the hotel will have a fine-dining restaurant, the brand's Club Lounge, a signature Ritz-Carlton Spa and fitness center, a rooftop bar, a large public garden and two ballrooms. A spokesperson told M&C that renderings and more details on meeting space should be available soon.
 
"We are thrilled to be working with Flag Luxury Group to bring this significant project to the NoMad area," said Tony Capuano, executive vice president and global chief development officer for Marriott International. "Thanks to buzzing restaurants and bars, unique retail and notable architecture, NoMad has become one of Manhattan's most popular neighborhoods. This signing speaks to the strong demand we are experiencing for luxury hospitality and branded residences."
 
"The Ritz-Carlton New York, NoMad, is set to become the epicenter of one of New York City's most exciting neighborhoods, and we are thrilled to be collaborating with Marriott International on this iconic project," said Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos, president of Flag Luxury Group. "The hotel and residences tower will have an ideal location and sophisticated design, complemented by the celebrated Ritz-Carlton service."
