The World’s First Automotive Club Of Its Kind Will Celebrate 10 Years
in New York City with a New Home in Hudson River Park
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#drivetastefully—Classic
Car Club, the world’s first automotive club of its kind, announced
today that it has relocated its New York operation to Pier 76 in
Manhattan’s Hudson River Park. Pier 76 is across from Jacob Javits
Center at 34th Street and is the former home of the New York
Police Department Mounted Unit.
Classic Car Club will transform the current pier, consisting of
25,000sqft of indoor space and 13,000sqft of outdoor space, into the new
home for automotive culture on the East Coast. The facility will include
a new 3,000sqft clubroom for Classic Car Club members and an 11,000sqft
auto showroom, river terrace and special events space open to the
public. Additionally, Classic Car Club will redevelop the adjacent
outdoor space on the south side of Pier 76 into a beautiful public
garden with water access for the members of the local community and
users of Hudson River Park.
“2015 marked the 20th anniversary of Classic Car Club’s founding in
London and 10th year in New York. During this time, Classic Car Club
evolved from a quirky start up offering New Yorkers a clever way to get
behind the wheel of extraordinary cars to the home of automotive
aficionados, adventure seekers, racers and manufactures alike,” said
Michael Prichinello, co-founder of CCC and TheNINETY. “Classic Car Club
has grown to become the epicenter of New York City’s bustling car
culture and a destination for auto enthusiasts from around the globe.
The unbelievable view of the Hudson River from Pier 76 will provide the
perfect backdrop for our collection of cars and an unprecedented hub for
our members, auto enthusiasts and members of the local community to
share their passion for anything on wheels.”
At Pier 76, Classic Car Club will be able to expand its offering and
serve a larger community through Clubhouse Memberships and a full
calendar of public special events and educational programming.
The new location will also be home to theNINETY
– a new, motor-centric creative agency conceived by the founders of the
Classic Car Club team. With its decades of experience in buying,
selling, racing, modifying and loving cars and motorcycles, the crew has
become the world’s foremost arbiters of automobile culture. This
experience provides theNINETY with a unique value proposition to advise
automotive, motorcycle and motorsport-related brands on how to properly
communicate to customers in a smart, unexpected and modern way.
TheNINETY’s new facility will include a cinema and photographic studio
on the waterfront.
The Classic Car Club pioneered the shared experience model, has owned
more than 600 superb automobiles and brought a raft of
once-in-a-lifetime motoring experiences to its members. Quickly after
its introduction, cosseted classics and exotic super cars began dotting
the streets of New York, the Hamptons and destinations in all
directions. The club looks forward to continuing the tradition from its
new waterfront home.
