To offer the service, the group has teamed up with Volvo, the Swedish Luxury car manufacturer.
“We wanted to provide unparalleled service and ultra-high-end amenities, typically associated with a premier hotel, to our building’s Vue Penthouse residents. And we are pleased to work with Volvo in this first-of-its-kind arrangement with a luxury rental,” said Sky’s developer Mitch Moinian of The Moinian Group.
For the model of the house car, they’ve chosen the custom XC90 Excellence SUV which offers spectacular in-seat amenities, including beverage heating and cooling options, Orrefors Swedish crystal champagne flutes, iPad holders, and ultra-soft Nappa leather seats.
“The Volvo XC90 Excellence represents the pinnacle of modern Scandinavian luxury. Residents of Sky will appreciate arriving in style and comfort with Volvo,” said Jim Nichols, Tech and Product Communications Manager at Volvo Car USA.
“Our tenants live in unsurpassed luxury and that includes the Volvo house car for our Vue tenants, allowing them to travel the city in style and privacy,” added Moinian.
As for what’s next for Sky, we’ve yet to see. But the luxury rental market in New York City is vastly growing and developers keep surprising and upping the game when it comes to luxurious living and the services they offer its residents.
“Other buildings may look to us for an idea of what to do next. What will always set our product apart is our commitment to ultra-luxury living and the tenant perks of this exclusive Volvo collaboration,” Moinian explained.
