Rockwell Group Metropolis Anniversary

Tomorrow PR organised a press trip for Rockwell Group to New York in November ahead of the studio’s milestone 40th anniversary in 2024. This milestone presented an exciting opportunity for the journalists to delve into the captivating universe of Rockwell Group and experience one of the most dynamic cities in the world through the lens of David Rockwell and the studio he has successfully built over the last four decades.

Seven journalists from publications including El País Icon (Spain), IDEAT (France), Hypebeast, Departures International, Elle Decoration (UK), Telegraph Luxury (UK) and ICON (UK) attended the three-day trip. The itinerary included visits to some of Rockwell Group’s latest projects. We explored the recently opened Perelman Performing Arts Center for a tour and dinner at the restaurant –  Metropolis. We also had the opportunity to dine at Zaytinya at the Ritz Carlton, led by Chef José Andrés, as well as at the stylish Italian spot Carlotto, Japanese restaurant Sake No Hana at Moxy Lower East Side and the iconic Union Square Café.

We also previewed some exciting upcoming projects, such as the new Bathhouse Flatiron and eagerly anticipated W Hotel on Union Square. We ended the week with a day trip to Washington D.C. to visit the impressive Johns Hopkins Bloomberg Center on 555 Pennsylvania Avenue, just a stone’s throw away from the Capitol. To wrap it all up, we had the pleasure of staying at the luxurious New York EDITION, treating us to sweeping views of the New York skyline and breath-taking sunsets.

Overall, over seven substantial pieces of coverage are expected to be published throughout 2024 on David Rockwell and the 40th anniversary of Rockwell Group. We look forward to celebrating this big moment with the Rockwell Group team next year!
