It looks like Williamsburg is getting yet another hotel, and another stilted one at that. A tipster sent a rendering to YIMBY with a first look at the Hoxton Hotel that will rise on the empty lot along Wythe between North 9th and North 10th streets, and like its in-progress neighbor The William Vale, Hoxton will also perch above the ground floor level on a stilted exoskeleton. The hotel, which is just two blocks from the Wythe Hotel and a whole handful of other Brooklyn accommodations, will have 175 rooms shared between 49,100 square feet of space. The building's ground floor will be devoted to retail and the hotel will have 23 parking spots. Perkins Eastman is designing the building and Sydell Group is the developer.
If anything's to be gleaned by a trip to the hotel brand's website, it's that it makes its business setting up shop in some of the most sought-after neighborhoods in some of the world's coolest cities. The company must be pretty secure in its brand, because Heritage Equity Partners is in the midsts of building a 160-room hotel right across the street.
