The Greenpoint Terminal Market, once a massive warehouse that suffered irreparable damage in a ten-alarm fire in 2006, will soon become a 155-key luxury hotel, because North Brooklyn can't possibly have enough of those sprouting up over the next few years.
Brownstoner reports that the property's owners, Jack and Joshua Guttman, have filed permits with the Department of Buildings to transform the dilapidated warehouse at 60 West Street into a "155-key, 84,000-square-foot, nine-story hotel," complete with a gym, bar, restaurant, retail space, outdoor terrace, and rooftop pool that you won't be invited to.
There aren't a whole lot of hotels in Greenpoint—there's the Box House, located all too close to the Pulaski Bridge, the Henry Norman Hotel near McGolrick Park, and maybe one or two others. But the real estate scene in the neighborhood is rapidly changing. Luxury rental buildings are on their way, developments are popping up along the waterfront, BMW is invading, and fires keep burning out all the old buildings. Greenpoint getting its own Wythe Hotel is no surprise at all.
Oh well, at least you can still find some good deals in Yonkers.
