Scaffolding has been removed from 291 Livingston Street revealing the large mural on the western elevation of the 22-story hotel in Downtown Brooklyn. The 189-foot-tall project is designed by Gene Kaufman Architect and is being developed by Aview Equities and Hello Living, which purchased the plot for $11.1 million. Located between Nevins Street to the east and Hanover Place to the west, the property will yield 100 hotel rooms and a ground-floor beer garden.
Work is continuing on 291 Livingston Street, a 22-story, 100-room hotel building in Downtown Brooklyn. The 189-foot-tall project is designed by Gene Kaufman Architect and is being developed by Aview Equities and Hello Living, which purchased the plot for $11.1 million. The property is located between Nevins Street to the east and Hanover Place to the west, and is planned to contain a ground-floor beer garden.
The 189-foot-tall, 22-story reinforced concrete edifice of 291 Livingston Street appears to have recently topped out. YIMBY last covered the Downtown Brooklyn building several years ago and reported that this will become a 100-key hotel. A rendering on the construction fence depicts a very bold pattern of black and white stripes in an almost Dazzle camouflage-esque configuration on the party walls. Hello Living is the owner of the lot after purchasing the site for $11.1 million, and is developing the project with Aview Equities. Gene Kaufman Architect is the architect of record.
Brooklyn-based developer Hello Living is expanding into The Bronx. The announcement of their purchase of 1049 Washington Avenue in the South Bronx yesterday—their second development and acquisition outside of Brooklyn—also brought forth the first renderings plans to realize the site as condominiums.
Hello Living’s 1580 Nostrand Avenue has resumed construction following a scaled-down redesign of the residential development. Located in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, the structure would have been one of South Brooklyn’s tallest towers at 23-stories.
