Last year, YIMBY reported on the first permits for a new hotel coming to 97 Wythe Avenue, between North 9th and 10th Streets, along a corridor that’s booming with new development. And now a tipster has sent YIMBY a rendering for New York’s first Hoxton Hotel, which is being designed by Perkins Eastman.
Trader Joe’s has leased 18,000 square feet in Alliance Private Capital’s planned 45,000 square-foot mixed-use commercial building, which will include offices on the upper levels, at 206 Kent Avenue, a block in from the East River in Williamsburg. According to Crain’s Business, the grocery store will take space on the ground and basement levels.

The building will measure 6,745 square feet in residential space, which means units will average 750 square feet. Murat Simsek’s engineering service Rocda is the applicant of record, and the existing two-story townhouse, apparently dating back to 1899, must first be demolished.

The same anonymous LLC and filing architect, SRA Architecture + Engineering, are developing and designing the project. To recap, each building will measure 12,290 square feet, with ground-floor retail portions spanning 2,860 square feet. At No. 64, an existing two-story townhouse must first be demolished.
