483-489 baltic street boerum hill

The developer of the Union Hotel in Gowanus, Alec Shtromandel, is planning a four-story hotel at 489 Baltic Street between Bond and Nevins, just over the border with Gowanus in Boerum Hill. BuzzBuzzHome first spotted the new building applications for the 34-unit, 9,968-square-foot hotel.The hotel will include office space, conference rooms and a restaurant. Kutnicki Bernstein Architects is the architect of record. Alteration permits have already been filed to to demolish the facade on the existing 5,700-square-foot brick warehouse.

Capital New York reported last year that Shtromandel had partnered with local restaurateur Matt Abramcyk to build a four-story, 82-unit hotel at 645 Union Street, but no plans have been filed with the DOB.

  • The number of hotels going up in Downtownish areas of Brooklyn is beginning to remind me of Japan in the late 80s, early 90s…severely overbuilt

  • Yesterday I noticed a sign for a new hotel at the corner of 3rd Avenue and 6th Street. I believe it’s supposed to be 6 stories. I don’t recall if anyone has reported that development yet. (Which is a much better location than Baltic and Bond. Yikes!)

  • Then there’s that other hotel where the post office on Atlantic Ave is now. How many rooms does Brooklyn really need?

    • A LOT more hotel room are needed. My office is in Dumbo, and hotel rooms in the downtown area are so few and expensive that it is far cheaper for visitors and consultants to stay in Manhattan.

  • If this includes the empty lot on the NW corner, then I can see it – barely. Otherwise, this small lot doesn’t make a whole lot of sense for a hotel / restaurant – mid-block, buried between the auto mechanics, projects, recycling centers, projects, cabinet & countertop makers, projects, HVAC contractors, and did I mention the projects? I’m not sure 34 rooms makes a destination.
