The hotel, dubbed the Westin New York Staten Island, will encompass 190,000 square feet and will include 15,000 square feet of event space. Many of its luxury amenities and a restaurant will be located in the industrial building.

Perkins Eastman is designing and Andres Escobar is responsible for the interiors, although new building applications haven’t been filed for the hotel. Completion of the hotel is expected in 2019.
