The city has released the proposals submitted by seven development teams that are looking to develop a hotel and condo near Pier 1 in Brooklyn Bridge Park. The guidelines for the site call for 170 to 225 hotel rooms and between 150 and 180 residential units. The big-name developers that have submitted proposals include Extell, Toll Brothers and the Dermot Company. Pictured above, Two Trees’ proposal; click through for the other six. (For more renderings, the Observer has the best collection.) The board of Brooklyn Bridge Park now has to present the plans to community groups. After a proposal is chosen, construction is supposed to begin in 2013 and wrap a couple years after.
