The Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation has, as expected, voted on which developers get to build the hotel and residential complex next to Pier 1. And, also as expected, Toll Brothers and Starwood Capital Group are the winners! Their project, a 10-story hotel and residential complex and another five-story residential building, will be designed by Rogers Marvel Architects, the same firm behind the original Toll Brothers submission. All the deets, via a press release from the mayor's office: the complex will total 550,000 square feet, with 200 rooms in the hotel and 159 residential units. The hotel already has a name: 1 Hotel.
The city's official press release has more square footage stats:
The proposed building plan will feature nearly 16,000 square feet of restaurant space, 16,000 square feet of banquet and meeting space, 2,000 square feet of retail space, a 6,000-square-foot spa and fitness center and 300 parking spaces. It also includes park restrooms as well as maintenance space for park operations?.The project?is located immediately south of Old Fulton Street and the Brooklyn Bridge adjacent to the park’s major entrance at Pier 1." The revenue?estimated to be about $119.7 million?will go toward the park's maintenance.
As for the buildings themselves, the Rogers Marvel designs "feature a stepped façade of stone and metal, sculpted to embrace the unparalleled views of the New York harbor and the park. They feature green roofs, a variety of walkways to access the park and a newly activated Furman Street sidewalk." The whole project is aiming for LEED Silver certification. The newest iteration is shown in the gallery above; here's what the separate Toll and Starwood submissions looked like originally:
