Kasa Living has opened its latest apartment-style hotel property at 120 Allen Street on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Known as Kasa Lantern LES, the ten-story building comprises 20 short-stay rooms styled as condominium homes.
Kasa Living partnered with Delshah Capital, current owners of the building, to bring the property online.
“We’re excited to partner with Kasa to usher in an exciting new chapter for this special property,” said Michael Shah, CEO of Delshah Capital. “Given the continued rise in digital nomads and remote working, Kasa’s flexible residential operating model is a great fit for Manhattan’s hip Lower East Side, where young professionals and creatives want to work and play.”
Designed by Grzywinski+Pons, a New York City-based architecture studio, each room comes fully furnished and stocked with linens, and more than half of the rooms will feature either a full kitchen or a kitchenette. The upper-level penthouse suites also include private terraces with views of the surrounding neighborhood. The base of the building houses Ye’s Apothecary, an intimate tapas and speakeasy bar serving modern Szechuan cuisine and bespoke cocktails.
The façade of the building incorporates a mix of gray brick, metal-framed windows, and ornamental fins above the fifth floor.
“The Lower East Side has long been one of New York’s most vibrant and youthful neighborhoods, and a beacon for the modern traveler,” said Roman Pedan, founder and CEO of Kasa. “We’re enthusiastic for the chance to showcase our brand of tech-enabled hospitality in such an exciting and dynamic location.”
