Brooklyn to Get New Starwood Hotel

Brooklyn just gets cooler and cooler: We hear that Toll Brothers and Starwood will be teaming up to build a high-end eco-friendly hotel and condominium community next to Pier 1 in Brooklyn Bridge Park. The hotel will be part of Starwood Capital's 1 Hotel brand, and will be located immediately south of the DUMBO neighborhood and the Brooklyn Bridge, west of Brooklyn Heights, and adjacent to the Park entrance at Pier 1.

Even better? The project, which will feature a stepped facade of stone and metal, green roofs, a variety of walkways to access the park and Furman Street, is projected to achieve LEED Silver Certification. The project should break ground by next summer, and both buildings are expected to open by fall 2015.
