A Hotel in the Works for Park Avenue


A plan is in process with the Department of Buildings for a five-story, 32-room hotel along Park Avenue between Cumberland Street and Carlton Avenue, in the Fort Greene/Wallabout area. It will be constructed over three lots, all of which are currently vacant. The site owner said that the hotel will part of the Choice Hotel group, which includes Comfort Inn, Quality Inn, and Clarion Hotels. (The architect on record, Michael Kang Architect, has previously designed a Comfort Inn, among other chain hotels.) The building still needs DOB and financing approvals, and is not expected to break ground until next year. The owner told us they’re planning a rooftop bar and lounge, which will surely have nice views of the nearby Brooklyn Queens Expressway. GMAP
