SDi Provides Laundry Solutions at Frank Gehry-Designed 8 Spruce Street in Lower Manhattan

SDi is thrilled to have been chosen to install and manage the central laundry room at the latest Frank Gehry-designed building in New York. Located in the heart of the Financial District, near City Hall and the Brooklyn Bridge, 8 Spruce Street is—at 876 feet—the tallest residential tower in the Western Hemisphere.

Featuring Gehry’s signature undulating exterior made of stainless steel, the building’s 76 stories high, enclosing 900 spectacular residential rental units. Amenities include a 50-foot swimming pool, wraparound sundecks, fitness center and spa. SDi has installed a state-of-the-art laundry room on the 6th floor; conveniently located one floor below the health club. The commercial-size washer and dryers are big enough for residents to wash quilts, blankets and large loads, and will dry them much faster than the small washers and dryers located inside the apartment units.

Designed by Frank Gehry, 8 Spruce Street in Lower Manhattan is the tallest residential building in the hemisphere. It features fabulous amenities, including a central laundry room designed, installed and maintained by SDi Laundry Solutions.

“Central laundry rooms, also known as ‘back-up’ laundry rooms, are so much faster and do such a better job than the small machines installed in each unit, that we are hoping that residents will come down and take advantage of them,” says Ron Garfunkel, President/CEO of SDi. “We are proud to have been chosen to provide this amenity at one of New York’s premiere residences.”
