A long-delayed hotel in Greenpoint is going to open soon. Signage has gone up and the hotel has been blanketing the neighborhood with notifications about its pending liquor license and a planned rooftop bar, reported FreeWilliamsburg and Curbed.
Plans for the Scarano designed conversion of a warehouse at 233 Norman Avenue have been in the works since 2006 but were shelved for years. Then on May 8, the DOB approved a plan exam for the project. Last fall, landlord Joe Torres started evicting tenants from the building, The Brooklyn Paper reported at the time.
The 38,000-square-foot warehouse will have 58 rooms. It will be called The Henry Norman — after its two cross streets. Torres also owns the Box House Hotel, located about a mile away from the Henry Norman near the Greenpoint waterfront.
