Two New York icons will be partnering at new luxury condominium Rose Hill. Developer Rockefeller Group announces via a press release that the 45-story tower—currently finishing construction at 30 East 29th Street—will include a residents’ library, lounges, and other common areas with books and other items curated and stocked by Strand Books.
Known for its expansive collection of new, used, and rare books spanning many genres and topics, as well as a wide array of literary gifts, Strand Books will fill the shelves of Rose Hill with hundreds of titles in several of its amenity spaces, including a private library on the lobby level, a hotel-like lounge dubbed “The Blue Room,” and a secondary library within a private residents’ club on the 37th floor.
“Strand Books is one of New York’s most treasured and historical literary institutions,” says Meg Brod, Rockefeller Group’s Senior Vice President and head of Development in the Northeast U.S., “and we’re proud to support our partner and the independent businesses that make up our great city.”
Says James Odum, Communications Director at Strand Book Store, “The Strand is honored to be a featured partner for Rose Hill and we are delighted that our custom libraries, curated by The Strand’s Books By the Foot team, will help breathe literary life into this incredible and one-of-a-kind project...We are excited to be collaborating with such a prominent developer, who was founded in New York around the same time we were nearly a century ago.”
