Today the Post reports that the developer Second Development Services will build a hotel at 95 Rockwell Place, an area of the BAM Cultural District getting a lot of ink recently. The current building at 95 Rockwell, which is not landmarked, was previously on the market for $9.5 million. The deed has not yet hit public records. The hotel will be under construction for two years and is surrounded by other buildings on their way up. The Theater for a New Audience build is right next door and it’s also near the 32-story apartment/public plaza planned by Two Trees and another affordable development planned for Ashland Place and Lafayette Avenue. According to the project manager, “the district was long overdue to get a hotel.” But as far as we can tell, in a few years the downtown area will be basically overrun with them.
