Downtown Brooklyn is abuzz with new construction. YIMBY has covered this extensively and it’s been plain to see for those traveling around the city. Now, one of two new hotels on the same block in the neighborhood is inching closer to completion.
The hotel in question is at 156 Tillary Street. That’s in between Gold Street and Flatbush Avenue Extension. Lodgeworks is the developer and the architecture firm Stonehill & Taylor is behind the design. It’s right next to a new 14-story, 117-key Hampton Inn, occupying the address 125 Flatbush Avenue Extension. The Hampton Inn was designed by the same firm, which is obvious in photographer Tectonic’s recently-captured image of the site. It shows facade installation having reached over halfway up the structure.
156 Tillary is 22 stories tall, rising to 222 feet above street level. The latest permit shows it will house 145 hotel rooms. That’s a two-room increase from when permits were filed two years ago. Those rooms will be spread across 58,310 square feet of commercial space. That works out to rooms averaging over 402 square feet.
There will be eight rooms per floor from the second floor through the 12th floor and seven rooms per floor from the 13th floor through the 20th floor. A single “executive suite” will be located on the 22nd floor, accompanied by a lounge and bar.
Some sort of eatery, with both indoor and outdoor seating, is also listed on the Schedule A. Additionally, meeting rooms will be located in the cellar. The number of meeting rooms is not specified, but they will each have a capacity of fewer than 74 people.
The nearest subway station is DeKalb Av, on the B, Q, and R trains. That’s about a seven-minute walk. About 10 minutes away is Jay St-MetroTech, home to the A, C, F, and R trains. The Borough Hall station, with access to the 2, 3, 4, and 5 trains is only a few blocks from there.
Completion of 156 Tillary Street could come by the end of the year.
