A new hotel may be coming to a rather industrial block on the Gowanus/Boerum Hill border. Buzz Buzz Home reports that a four-story, 34-room hotel is in the works for 489 Baltic Street between Bond and Nevins streets. The hotel will bring a restaurant of sorts, office space, and a cellar-level conference room to the light manufacturing area. Demolition plans have been filed for the existing 5,000-square-foot warehouse on the site. Larry Kutnicki of Kutnicki Bernstein Architects is listed as the building's architect of record, and Alec Shtromandel is listed as a general partner in the project. Shtromandel is also behind the 43-room Union Hotel at nearby 611 Degraw Street, and is also working on an 82-room, four-story hotel at 645 Union Street.
