NEW YORK | WilliamsburgHotel | 134m | 440ft | 40 fl | Pro



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Boutique hotel planned for site adjacent to historic Williamsburgh Savings building



Quote:
A 250-room hotel will go up next to the historic Williamsburgh Savings Bank building in Brooklyn, a spokesperson for the developer, Juan Figueroa, confirmed to The Real Deal today.

The hotel is still in the early planning stages but should rise 40 stories on a site adjacent to the old bank building, at 175 Broadway, which has undergone an extensive renovation and will open later this year as an event space. “It is going to be the hottest hotel in Brooklyn – no question in my mind,” said Edward Eschmann, a director in CBRE’s evaluation group, who is familiar with the project.

The boutique hotel will probably be ready for business by early 2015, both Eschmann and the developer’s spokesperson said; Figueroa, though doesn’t have financing yet for the project, Eschmann told TRD. Previous reports had speculated that Figueroa would convert the bank itself into lodging; the next-door space, empty but part of the same plot, will let the developer build a much taller hotel.

Proximity to the Williamsburg Bridge and Peter Luger Steakhouse should help boost the hotel’s profile. The domed bank is one block south of the bridge, at Driggs Avenue.

An earlier contest-winning concept rendering by Miami-based architecture firm Oppenheim A+D of a 440 ft. hotel at that location.
No word on the architect or a render for this development.

With that height it's definitely a landmark. Cool facade.
