Permits have been filed for a six-story commercial hotel at 187 Cook Street, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. This permit differs from a previous application filed in April 2016, proposing an office building designed by Charles Mallea’s M Architecture. The border with Bushwick is only two blocks away, and the site sits seven blocks away from the Morgan Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the L trains, and eight blocks away from the Flushing Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the J, M, and Z trains.
The developer is listed as anonymous, but evidence does suggest that the Howard Johnson Hotel company will be responsible.
The 65-foot tall structure will yield 37,760 square feet, with 26,280 square feet of commercial space, including 92 guest rooms. The building will include four parking spaces, a hotel lobby with reception space and offices, a laundry room, fitness center, bicycle storage room, and a dining space with a pantry.
Michael Kang Architects will be responsible for the design.
Demolition permits have not been filed, and the estimated completion date has not been announced.
