New Fourth Avenue Hotel and the Brooklyn Lodging Boom

New Hotel

We took a walk down Fourth Avenue and got a few shots of the new boutique hotel that's rising on Fourth Avenue at Fifth Street, which will apparently feature a restaurant on the top floor--and possibly rooftop too. The sign, you will note, proclaims "great views," although we don't know whether it includes the Gowanus itself. The hotel is sandwiched between Pep Boys and a big, bright yellow taxi depot, across the street Leviev Boymelgreen's Park Slope Tower and will have 48 rooms. It's a short distance from the Gowanus Holiday Inn Express. We're sure all the promotional material for the hotel will say that it's in Park Slope, which one can technically argue, whereas the Holiday Inn Express is in no way, shape or form in Park Slope.

Other Brooklyn lodgings are coming too. There's another hotel, said to be a Comfort Inn, coming to Butler Street near Wyckoff Gardens and the Gowanus Houses. The Brooklyn Marriott is opening a 282-room extension and the Smith Hotel will be opening as part of Boymelgreen's 75 Smith Street luxury condo development. There are also hotels said to be coming to Williamsburg, including a very large one that has been rumored, but about which there's nothing solid.

Call it the Brooklyn hotel boom.

Comfort Inn is NOT coming to BALTIC Street.
There is hotel rising on BUTLER St.
between 3rd and Nevins on very uninviting block and walk to subway. This is nearer Wyckoff Gardens than Gowanus Houses.

Does anyone know what the building on the corner of 4th ave and Baltic St is going to be? Looks like it's gonna be at least 8 stories, L-shaped.
