Superior Ink, the new Robert A.M. Stern-designed West Village condominium on West 12th Street (profiled by The Observer‘s Chloe Malle this spring), is turning its luxury eye to two-wheel rides. Residents of the building have been spotted taking advantage of its bicycle valet service, according to The Villager (and spotted by us via Curbed).
The building’s Web site, which features the world’s most manically cheerful doorman, mentions the service amidst a long list of amenities, including a pilates room (presumably for winding down after all that cycling). Bikes are brought out and readied for residents before they leave home and then taken into storage and locked up upon their return. Superior Ink dwellers, including Marc Jacobs and Hilary Swank, apparently use the service regularly.
No word yet on where they put your bike lock keys.
