New, 1 comment

WILLIAMSBURG?The Hotel Williamsburg is rebranded the King & Grove Williamsburg after the hotelier announced it will relaunch the Brooklyn hotel with a style update and a new restaurant to replace the departed Pillar & Plough. This is King & Grove's first hotel under its management in New York City, although it will eventually operate the Hotel Chelsea in Manhattan for the Chetrit Group. King & Grove Williamsburg overlooks McCarren Park and features luxury amenities that include a rooftop bar and an outdoor saltwater pool. [Curbedwire Inbox]

NEW YORK?The winners of the 2012 AIANY awards were announced this week, highlighting some of the best design work done by New Yorkers and/or in New York. Three dozen groups or individuals were recipients of an Honor Award (10) or a Merit Award (26).
