Red Hook isn't known for being a huge tourist destination, a fact that's reflected in the lack of hotels in the Brooklyn neighborhood. (The whole lack-of-a-subway thing probably doesn't help.) But at least one developer is banking on Red Hook: Developer Abe Leser is planning a five-story hotel at 411 Van Brunt Street, as a recent application filed with the Department of Buildings shows (h/t YIMBY).
The five-story building would be home to 19 hotel rooms and 3,700 square feet of an "ambulatory diagnostic treatment health care," per the application. According to the Schedule A filings, there would be three hotel rooms on the first floor; eight rooms apiece on the third and fourth floors; a dining room and rec room on the fifth floor; and a roof terrace. And according to YIMBY, because the lot is zoned for manufacturing and commercial use, the developer could build the hotel as-of-right.
Red Hook has seen a spate of development recently, both commercial and residential: The huge waterfront tech complex designed by Est4te Four is still in the works, and the schmancy new King & Sullivan townhouses, which hit the market earlier this year, have been selling quickly.
