NEW YORK, January 9, 2018 – XpresSpa, the industry-leading luxury airport spa company and a wholly owned subsidiary of XpresSpa Group. (Nasdaq:XSPA), announced the future opening of a off-airport prototype spa location at Westfield World Trade Center.
Boasting 1,113 square feet of prime retail space, the new XpresSpa location offers an extensive menu of signature spa services such as massages, XpresCryo Facials, manicures and premier facials from leading skin-care partner, Dermalogica. The spa also offers the XpresBlowout.
Westfield’s premier owned and operated property is part of the new World Trade Center complex and is Manhattan’s largest mall at 350,000 square feet. It also serves as Manhattan’s third largest transportation hub and accommodates approximately 17 million visitors annually.
“We are excited to debut our off-airport XpresSpa at such an iconic location in the heart of New York City. This prototype is an excellent opportunity for us to learn more about how the XpresSpa concept performs in environments beyond the airport, which has the potential to materially expand our addressable market,” said Ed Jankowski, President of XpresSpa.
“Westfield is one of the largest operators of consumer venues in the United States and we are thrilled to have Westfield as our proven partner in such a high-profile project. The opening of this prototype location is another step in XpresSpa’s strategy to evolve beyond the airport and become a recognized global retail and spa leader,” said Andrew Perlman, CEO of XpresSpa Group.
“We are thrilled XpresSpa opened at Westfield World Trade Center,” said Shari C. Hyman, Westfield World Trade Center’s Vice President and General Manager. “Their wellness offerings are a welcome addition for all our local communities – including Lower Manhattan residents, the Downtown office population, and the many tourists who visit here on a daily basis.”
