Guests gathered on February 22 to celebrate the grand opening of Sackman Enterprises 70 Rainey Sales Gallery located at 78 Rainey Street. CJ Sackman, Managing Director of Sackman Enterprises, welcomed attendees, provided a project update and introduced Mark Zeff, the renowned visionary behind the stunning interiors for 70 Rainey. Zeff, the internationally acclaimed interior designer for the development, educated party goers on his vision for the project – a mix of relaxed sophistication with the use of industrial elements creating an elegant take on a raw, edgy style. The mastermind behind the design of Hotel Van Zandt reinforced his love of the Rainey Street District and excitement to work on another project of such esteemed caliber in the neighborhood.
Guests enjoyed a model kitchen and bathroom that showcase the exquisite finish samples available to residents. Large interactive televisions displayed 70 Rainey floor plans, project renderings and drone images of the sweeping views every residence will offer. Attendees mixed and mingled with the 70 Rainey sales team and Sackman executives while sipping on 70 Rainey Ritas and customized cocktails provided by Sourced Cocktails. Kevin Fink and his team from Emmer & Rye wowed guests with passed hor d’eorves and a fire activation station featuring beef short rib carnitas. Guests walked away with 70 Rainey swag and images from the photo booth provided by Ben Porter Photography.
