A Downtown Building with Sky’s the Limit Concierge Service
to Rival Hip Boutique Hotels

By Abbie Newman

Residents of Manhattan Skyline’s newest property at 55 Thompson Street have a lot to look forward to in the coming months. With hot new restaurant openings, relaxing spas, and the complimentary Sky’s the Limit concierge service to assist with their move and to make all their bookings, each resident has the opportunity to take advantage of their new neighborhood. Sky’s the Limit concierge is only available to residents living within the exclusive Manhattan Skyline portfolio of buildings and a true resident lifesaver. Their staff of “in-the-know” concierges try out every hot new place and service, making it easier to get residents into the best venues without having to filter through too many choices. This includes everything from making reservations in restaurants, nightclubs, spas, ordering theatre tickets and cars to the airport, to the mundane everyday tasks like finding a reliable dog walker and arranging cable tv setup. Manhattan Skyline residents depend on the concierges to make their daily plans go smoothly. As Eli Safdieh, a resident of the downtown Saranac building explained “The concierges make my dinner reservations, order bouquets for my loved ones, and always come through at the last minute. I couldn’t do without them.”

Each month the concierges put together a list of what’s hot and worth checking out for their residents’ neighborhoods. For the foodies of 55 Thompson Street, we’re bullish on celebrity chef and Locanda Verde owner Andrew Carmelinni’s new restaurant at 131 Sullivan Street. We hear local ingredients and the freshest meats will be on the menu with some Italian twists and American sides. Look for it to open in mid-July. Also, put the new eateries South Houston and The Smile on the list of new places to try this summer. Diners looking for a new angle on the Southern comfort food experience need not look further than this cozy neighborhood spot at West Broadway and Grand. And for those headed east to meet friends, sit yourselves together at the Smile and order the specials. Each one is out of this world. When the sunny days and light breezes change to a sweltering heat, it’s best to head indoors and relax. We love the relaxing services at the DevaChan Spa at 425 Broome Street. Stop in for the Deva Express On the Go Facial and leave refreshed, cooled off, and with that healthy summer glow! We also really like the re-vamped HAVEN spa at 150 Mercer Street. For an out of the city experience in the heart of it all, Haven is the place to go for reasonably priced massages ($140 for 90 minutes) and possibly the best waxing in New York. In the meantime, the concierges remain ready and willing to make life for Manhattan Skyline residents easy and stress free.
