Duffield Street Hotel Site Sells for $9.5 Mil

Plans for a boutique hotel on Duffield Street appear to be moving forward independently of the contentious eminent domain proceedings that may hit the Underground Railroad houses just a few doors down. A group of investors recently closed on the purchase of 237 Duffield Street for $9.5 million, according to public records. As we noted a couple of months ago, the developers intend to build a 22-story, Karl Fischer-designed Hotel Indigo to replace the VIM store that’s currently standing in the spot. The management team behind the planned hotel is called V3, and most of the hotels they’ve had a hand in have been economy chains like Comfort Inns and Holiday Inn Expresses. The forthcoming seamless blend of ergonomics and urbanity still has a ways to go before it graces Downtown Brooklyn, though: The DOB doesn’t show any applications filed for the demolition of the VIM building at 237 Duffield.
