Company News | TOWN Residential’s Series of Holiday and Seventh Anniversary Celebrations Concludes with TOWN Financial District and TOWN Brooklyn

SoHo’s stylish MAMO served as the venue for the firm to give its final toast to a successful new year.

 

TOWN Residential, New York’s leading luxury services firm, concluded its series of holiday and seventh year anniversary celebrations with an intimate and elegant event Tuesday evening for TOWN Financial District and TOWN Brooklyn. Following a series of events at top destinations across Manhattan, this phase of the celebration was hosted at MAMO, SoHo’s ultimate upscale dining venue. 

TOWN Residential founder and CEO Andrew Heiberger welcomed the firm’s Corporate and Development teams, as well as respected clients and VIP guests including Jamie Heiberger, Heiberger & Associates; Steven Merdinger, KRM LLP; Bonnie Desimone, Melissa Sinsi and Frank Micali, Citibank; and Benjamin Seiter and Ron Reimer, Citizens Bank, throughout the evening. All toasted their contributions towards the firm’s successes; including the introduction of the newly imagined townresidential.com, the expansion of the firm’s West Side footprint through the opening of 888 Seventh Avenue, and the further extension of the firm’s dynamic network to more than 133,600 professionals within more than 4,185 offices across five continents.

MAMO reigns as the ultimate purveyor of an affectionate Italian and Provençal dining experience. An outpost of MAMO Le Michelangelo, the longtime staple of the French Riviera, this celebrated New York City space offered an upscale and intimate atmosphere for TOWN to ring in the new year. 

The final in a series of six intimate gatherings, this event followed TOWN Corporate, New Development and Marketing and Leasing’s celebration last week, also at MAMO; TOWN West Side’s gathering at The Roof, the crowning jewel of the Viceroy Central Park; TOWN Astor Place’s holiday event at Ian Schrager’s iconic PUBLIC amidst stunning views of the city skyline; TOWN Upper East Side’s celebration at the iconic St. Regis, the 18-story French Beaux-Arts building that has well-earned its status as a world-class destination for luxury and service; and TOWN Flatiron’s celebration at Norwood, one of Manhattan’s most elite and influential private clubs housed inside its hallmark historic 14th Street brick brownstone.

TOWN looks forward to continuing this unrivaled atmosphere of gratitude throughout the year, providing ongoing and dedicated best-in-class service to its Representatives, clients and affiliates alike.
