New York—Two new hotels designed by Gene Kaufman Architect for Quadrum Global are scheduled to open this fall in Manhattan. The hotels, located in NoMad and Hudson Square, will be part of Quadrum’s new Arlo micro-hotel brand.

Located at 231 Hudson St., the 11-story, 325-key Arlo Hudson Square hotel is set to open Sept. 6. The 97,000-square-foot property will feature expansive outdoor space, a rooftop terrace with a bar & lounge, and a 2,400-square-foot restaurant headed by Chef Harold Moore, among other amenities. Interior design is being handled by AvroKO, while MDD Landscape Design is in charge of landscaping.

The 37-story, 250-key Arlo NoMad will open later in the fall at 11 E. 31st St., between Fifth and Madison avenues. The 91,000-square-foot upscale hotel will incorporate amenities such as a rooftop deck with wrap-around views of the city and plenty of spaces to eat, lounge and socialize.

“Our goal for each of these hotels was to create a look that reflected the neighborhood in which it resides,” Founder & Principal Gene Kaufman said in a statement. “In Hudson Square, we’ve used aged brick to emulate the appearance of the area’s historic industrial buildings, while in the more bustling, urban NoMad we’ve designed a light, airy glass tower that floats above its neighbors and towers against the sky.”
