NYC’s $50M QC NY spa on Governors Island announces an expansion set to open this summer

Now, over two years after its initial ribbon cutting, QC NY is ready to unveil its conversion of a second structure, the 15,000-square-foot Building 112, which will have amenities including “sensory saunas,” a salt room, an ice room and a relaxation room with water beds.

As well, there will be a breath room serving as “a reminder to breathe,” and a lavender room “reminiscent of the lavender season in Provence or walking through the lavender field only steps away from us in Governors Island,” Andrea Quadrio Curzio, CEO and founder of the QC Spa of Wonders brand, told The Post.

(The company, which he started with his brother in the 1990s, is named for their initials: QC.)

It will also have the health compound’s second restaurant, Casa QC, a 142-seat, 5,000-square-foot eatery with soft and alcoholic beverages and a variety of Italianesque fare, including artisanal gelato and aperitivo trays.

A third facility, inside yet another former Georgian Revival-style barrack, is slated to be completed by the spring of 2025.

It will all bring the campus — the only QC location that’s outside Europe — to a total of 100,000 square feet.

Currently, the spa offers guests access to an array of Vichy showers, saunas, infrared beds, more than a dozen relaxation rooms, massages (for an additional charge), and its most Instagrammable nicety: Year-round outdoor pools with sweeping views of lower Manhattan.

“The expansion is another step in transforming Governors Island into a wildly popular, year-round destination,” reads a release about the new building, which notes that, until QC NY opened, the ferry only ran to the former Coast Guard base seasonally. That it now runs year-round is “another change you can thank the Italians for.”
