Permits were filed back in July of 2016 for a new hotel at 1548 Bedford Avenue, in Crown Height, Brooklyn. Though construction has not yet started, new renderings by ODA have revealed a daring, low-slung arched building adorned with a dark concrete façade. The hotel is located just two blocks away from the Franklin Avenue subway station, serviced by the 2, 3, 4 and 5 trains. The Botanic Garden subway station is one block further, serviced by the Shuttle trains.
Permits have been filed for a 26-story hotel and residential tower at 159 Broadway, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Rising above the Williamsburg Bridge’s final stretch in Brooklyn, the structure would be a highly visible addition to the neighborhood. The J, M, and Z trains all ride just past the site. Their first stop in Brooklyn, Marcy Avenue, is just four blocks away. Cornell Realty will be responsible for the development, after purchasing the site for $26.2 million.
Permits have been filed for a two-story hotel at 701 East 240th Street in Wakefield, The Bronx, a popular area for the typology in the borough. The site is a block away from the 241st Street Subway Station, the final stop for the 2 train. Chand White Plains LLC will be responsible for the development.
Back in May, applications were filed for a new 27-story hotel at 305 West 48th Street, between Eighth and Ninth Avenues in Hell’s Kitchen. Now, we have the first rendering for the project, which is being designed by Gene Kaufman.
Permits have been filed for a six-story commercial hotel at 187 Cook Street, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. This permit differs from a previous application filed in April 2016, proposing an office building designed by Charles Mallea’s M Architecture. The border with Bushwick is only two blocks away, and the site sits seven blocks away from the Morgan Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the L trains, and eight blocks away from the Flushing Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the J, M, and Z trains.
