75 Wall Partners with DivaMoms to Unveil "the next Fifty Shades of Grey"

8/6/12

Manhattan's Divalysscious Moms recently introduced The Winemaker's Dinner, an erotic memoir dubbed "the next Fifty Shades of Grey," during an at-capacity launch book event at the 75 Wall Residences Atop the Andaz – downtown's premier condominium. More than 175 well-heeled moms filled the building's spectacular rooftop lounge, eager to get their hands on a copy of the new "it book," and meet co-authors Dr. Ivan Rusilko, former Mr. World USA, and Everly Drummond.

Surrounded by breathtaking views of night-lit Manhattan, the DivaMoms sipped wine and listened with bated breath as Dr. Ivan read excerpts from The Winemakers Dinner, a heartfelt tale inspired by his own romantic triumphs and tragedies. Australian jazz singer Alfio set the mood for the inspiring night of storytelling.

"We thank the team at 75 Wall for helping the DivaMoms welcome Dr. Rusilko and Everly Drummond, and their sure-to-be best seller, in style," said Lyss Stern, founder of Divalysscious Moms. "The fabulous, glass-ensconced rooftop was the perfect location for this highly-anticipated event – from its chic living spaces to its top-notch amenities and remarkable vistas, the DivaMoms fell in love with 75 Wall as fast as they did Dr. Ivan."

Designed by award-winning Rockwell Group, the 42-story tower, located at Wall and Water streets, perfectly pairs a collection of 346 luxury residences with the Hyatt-managed Andaz Wall Street hotel to offer the best in modern city living. Contemporary condominiums range from spacious studios to four-bedroom homes, each boasting exquisite finishes – such as wood lacquer cabinetry by Italian Design Studio and wide-planked cerused oak flooring, lofty ceilings rising above 10 feet, top-of-the-line appliances including washer/dryer, and six-foot windows yielding spectacular panoramic views.

Residents of 75 Wall enjoy an entire floor of resident-only amenities, with a fully-equipped cardio space and yoga studio, club room and multi-media lounge, as well as exclusive access to the building's spectacular rooftop lounge and terrace. In addition, Abigail Michael's concierge service is on-call to handle residents' needs, and an onsite public garage makes parking a breeze.

What's more, residents can indulge in the hotel's many luxury services, which include 24-hour room service, catering, and the finest treatments from The SPA at Andaz Wall Street hotel. The hotel, named on the 2012 Cond Nast Traveler Gold List, is also home to Wall & Water, a locally sourced farm-to-table restaurant, and the trendy Bar Seven Five. Additionally, residents can buy fresh produce, meat, dairy and delicious baked goods at the Andaz Wall Street hotel farmer's market in the property's neighboring plaza.

A thriving 24/7 community, the Financial District has become the fastest growing residential area in New York City. 75 Wall is located in the heart of this lively neighborhood, mere steps from many of Manhattan's finest culinary destinations, like Delmonico's, Capital Grille, and over a dozen other Zagat-rated restaurants, while luxury retailers like Hermes, Tiffany & Co., Thomas Pink and Canali are also in close proximity. With quick access to 14 subway lines and a nearby heliport, transportation is a snap for residents of 75 Wall.

"75 Wall Street offers the finest luxury lifestyle in a dream location," said Karen Mansour, Executive Vice President of DE Development Marketing, the exclusive sales and marketing team for the 75 Wall Residences Atop the Andaz. "We were thrilled to welcome the Divalysscious Moms to downtown's most coveted residential address for such a successful gathering."
