New building applications were originally filed back in 2013 for an eight-story, 70-key hotel at 1080 Broadway, on the edge of Bedford-Stuyvesant, located two blocks from the Kosciuszko Street stop on the J train. DNAinfo now reports construction on the hotel is nearly complete. The structure measures a total 34,365 square feet and the ground floor will host retail space. The project will also host cultural events and presentations. When it opens in 2017, the hotel will be operated by Red Lion Hotels Corporation’s Hotel RL brand. ABCNY is the developer and Salamon Engineering Group is the applicant of record.
