Williamsburg just got even more exciting with the addition of a new hotel.
Currently under construction, the new Williamsburg Hotel will feature a 150 rooms and a number of luxe amenities. The property will have a rooftop bar that will be situated inside a replica of a water tower. Other uber-cool facilities slated to be on-property is an underground nightclub, a full-service restaurant that will offer outdoor seating, another rooftop bar with a pool, a grand ballroom with 30-foot ceilings that accommodates 400 people.
The water tower bar will accommodate up to 50 people max and will serve cocktails and light snacks. Bar-goers will enter via the avenue and an elevator.
The exterior will feature an industrialized look with a brick, glass and steel façade. It’s interior was as design by London-based design firm Michaelis Boyd, who designed Soho House Berlin as well as Soho House LA.
According to Bedford + Bowery, the hotel will be headed by Evan Altman, former General Manager at The Standard Hotel in Manhattan, and James Stuart, former Food and Beverage Director at The Bowery Hotel.
The property, which is will stand about seven stories high, will be located on the corner of North 10th Street and Wythe Avenue.
The hotel, which will be just a few feet away from Wythe Hotel, will open later this year with rooms beginning at $250 per night.
Earlier this year, the imminent hotel won the support of the neighborhood. B+B reported, “The SLA Review Committee voted to tentatively support the application by 96 Wythe Acquisition LLC, a team headed by developer Toby Moskovits, CEO of a family-owned outfit called Heritage Equity Partners.”
A member of the community board disclosed the group gave the liquor license a green light because the property feature bars that was “small and intimate.” However, another community member questions how the new hotel property will affect “the quality of life” of residents who lived in one of Brooklyn’s most popular neighborhoods for generations.
