Tribeca’s New Larger Than Life Luxury Apartments Offer Plane Charters



Residents of the ultra luxury apartments 111 Murray Street in Tribeca include access to a jet fleet on a whim. The brain child of Fisher Brothers, Witkoff, and New Valley offer its 111 Murray residents 10-20 percent discounts on Blue Star Jet’s 25 Hour Sky Card Program. Blue Star Jet’s fleet includes helicopters and jets of all sizes. Perhaps most notable are the Airbus’ Eurocopter and A380. The behemoth A380 is a two story jumbo-jet used in the commercial aviation industry by such brands as British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Emirates, Air France and the like to transports hundreds of passengers around the world. While a seat configuration accommodating that many passengers would suit the general population, 111 Murray residents will have an A380 plane charter configured for up to 50. For more intimate excursions residents can book small aircraft including various models from Gulfstream.

As Winston Fisher, of the Fisher Brother group, claimed the projects visionary mission was “to provide thoughtful, meaningful and one-of-a-kind amenities to its residents.” The plane charter program is certainly one way to achieve the visionary mission. One call to the building’s concierge will allow residents to make arrangements with a personal flight director. Clients will be able to include requests for food, beverage and in-flight entertainment. In the commercial aviation industry the rule of thumb for booking travel is well planned travel often requiring arrangements three months in advance; Blue Star Jet’s 25 Hour Sky Card program can accommodate arrangements made within as late as 24 hours prior to departure.

With over half of its inventory sold, 111 Murray Street and inventory left including a 791 square foot and 3,366 square foot unit selling for over $2500 per square foot and $4,500 respectively, not to mention the penthouses. It is no doubt the amenity serves as a solid selling point.
