There’s no shortage of hotels in New York City but that doesn’t mean they won’t just keep coming. At that, two of the city’s most development-heavy neighborhoods are getting new hotels, per fresh filings with the Department of Buildings.
In Downtown Brooklyn, residential developer Hello Living has submitted plans for a 21-story, 100-room hotel at 291 Livingston Street (h/t The Real Deal). The narrow site between Hanover Plaza and Nevins Street is currently occupied by a low retail building. Plans on file indicate that each floor will have five guest rooms, with a coffee shop occupying the ground floor.
Eli Karp, the founder of Hello Living purchased the site from former mayoral hopeful and supermarket magnate John Catsimatidis for $11.1 million in March.
Meanwhile, other prolific Brooklyn developer Rabsky Group has filed for a 104-room hotel on Williamsburg’s Bedford Avenue. The site, between South 4th and South 5th streets on Bedford Avenue, is currently occupied by a small parking lot and a residential building, according to TRD.
The developer plans to demolish the small residential building at 359 Bedford Avenue in order to make way for the 11-story, 155,000-square-foot hotel.
