Rockefeller Center will rent luxury apartments through Airbnb

Airbnb guests will soon be able to book luxurious suites in the heart of the famous New York Rockefeller Center: the company is going to turn the 10 floors into the famous 33-floor Rockefeller Plaza skyscraper into a hotel.

Airbnb plans to refit more than 10 floors of the building at 75 Rockefeller Plaza (a skyscraper on the north side of Rockefeller Center), turning this space into 200 luxury apartments, in collaboration with one of the largest developers of New York RXR Realty LLC, which owns the building, writes Bloomberg. In a joint statement of the companies, it is noted that the deal will create a “new category of urban residence” in New York.

All new apartments will be individually decorated. They offer views of St. Patrick's Cathedral, the Empire State Building, and, in season, the famous Rockefeller Center ice rink and the Christmas tree. The idea is to combine “all the comforts of home,” providing guests with “an authentic New York City experience and a sense of community familiar to locals,” Airbnb said in a statement.

Airbnb's move towards this deal began with the company evolving from a humble start-up to an all-inclusive travel platform offering flights, accommodations and travel experiences. Earlier this year, Airbnb agreed to buy HotelTonight - its largest acquisition to date - to increase hotel listings on the platform.

The partnership with RXR and the acquisition of HotelTonight extend the capabilities of Airbnb, which plans an initial public offering by the end of next year. As 29 learned in April, Marriott International Inc. plans to make a serious competition to Airbnb and for this expands its own home rental business in the United States.

Airbnb and RXR are also studying plans to transfer short-term rental services to other RXR facilities, such as the project at 47 Hall Street, the building opposite the Brooklyn Naval Plant.

This partnership could help Airbnb legitimize its presence in New York, where the company has faced stiff opposition from local authorities. The city has some of the most stringent rental laws in America: renting out a residential apartment for up to 30 days is illegal. This means that roughly 55 Airbnb properties in New York are theoretically leased out illegally.

“When we launched Airbnb over 10 years ago, it was immediately clear how people opening the doors of their homes to guests can help them feel like locals,” said Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky.

“Through our new partnership with RXR, we hope to create the same unique experience in the form of new spaces in downtown Manhattan and elsewhere, so that everyone can enjoy a true New York City experience,” he added.
