BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — A new six-story hotel may soon rise along the border of Bedford-Stuyvesant and Bushwick, according to permits filed with the city’s Department of Buildings.
The proposed 65-foot-tall building at 1200 Broadway near Van Buren Street would provide 37,372 square feet of commercial space and 89 rooms, plans show.
Plans include exercise and bike storage rooms, laundry facilities and ground-level retail, along with nine rooms on the first floor.
The second through sixth floors would each have 16 rooms and no enclosed parking is proposed, according to DOB filings.
The hotel is set to be a well-known chain and is part of a 2,000-room project in a mix of big-brand and boutique hotels planned by developer ABCNY, according to an ABCNY representative.
Several hotels have popped up along the dividing line of Crown Heights and Bed-Stuy on Atlantic Avenue, but hotels are sparse along Broadway, where the J and Z trains run overhead.
Robert Bianchini of Arc Architecture + Design Studio is listed as the registered architect for the project.
The firm has worked on several hotels throughout the city, including a 20-story project in Long Island City, according to New York YIMBY, which first reported plans for the Broadway building.
The site was previously home to a one-story metal shed, which was approved for demolition in June 2014.
