NEW YORK | The William Vale Hotel | 200ft | 18 fl | T/O

Wythe Avenue corridor to get yet another hotel



Quote:
The $30 million purchase of a site in North Williamsburg paves the way for an 180-room hotel by the developer behind the Condor Hotel.

The developer behind the Condor Hotel in South Williamsburg is building another hotel near the Wythe Hotel, the successful pioneer of what now has blossomed into a string of hotel projects in the neighborhood.

Developer Zelig Weiss has acquired 121 N. 12th St., a parcel that fills the entire block front between North 12th and North 13th streets along Wythe Avenue.

Mr. Weiss just closed on an $18.35 million loan from Madison Realty Capital, one of the most active specialty lenders in the boroughs, to purchase the site, which he is buying for about $30 million.

Joel Friedman, an executive with Nationwide Realty, helped Mr. Weiss arrange the transaction to acquire the site and said a 320,000-square-foot hotel can be erected there with about 180 rooms.

[b]The new hotel, to be called the Level Hotel[/b, is one of several that is being built in North Williamsburg along Wythe Avenue, where commercial zoning prevents the wave of residential development that has overtaken much of the rest of the neighborhood. Heritage Equity Partners, for instance, is also building a hotel around the block from the Wythe.

This building is fascinating, stunning, beautiful and interesting. A quirky, welcome addition to Williamsburg that screams Brooklyn. A Masterpiece.

Now I hope this building helps drag Williamsburg develoment north to fill in the remaining vacant and underutilized parcels

Nice project, but the transition from columns to the floors with balconies is not very good. I think it would have been very cool if these columns would go all the way to the roof.

It looks very stumpy and it looks like they started a massive skyscraper, stopped, and hired a different architect to do the top 10 floors.

You are right. It will take time to get used to, right now it looks like it should be still growing.

This looks like two different buildings grafted together, one pretty imaginative (the lower half) and the other totally ordinary (the upper half). They should have stayed with something consistent with the lower half all the way up.

I think the design is pretty cool for a hotel.
Moreover we should wait for the ugly netting to be removed
Also,the building looks very different(much better)when saw in its entirety(full base)

The renders show a much thinner truss structure in the lower half of the building. If it stayed like that, the top and bottom halves would have been better visually balanced.
