Rumor: Hotel/Condo Hybrid for 85 Flatbush Avenue?

Here’s a tidbit about the now-under-construction lot at 85 Flatbush Avenue Extension: A commenter in last week’s post about the site noted, “The building at 85 is supposed to house a hotel (six stories) with condos on the upper six floors.” The Department of Buildings just approved plans for 12 stories and 69 units, with a design from Gene Kaufman. If this building does indeed have hotel space, it’ll be competition for the Fairfield Inn under construction right across the street. Have any more details, or a rendering? Be in touch…
