Nature is home in Brooklyn.
Located at Pier 1 on Brooklyn Bridge Park, just south of the iconic bridge in the Brooklyn Heights neighborhood and minutes from downtown Manhattan, the 10-story sustainable ground-up development is designed by New York- based architecture studio Incorporated and will feature 194 guest rooms with sliding floor-to-ceiling windows —most offering stunning views of the East River, the Brooklyn Bridge and New York skyline—including 29 two- to six-bedroom suites and The Riverhouse, its Presidential Suite. Guests of the hotel will enjoy a full service Bamford Spa, a legendary UK-based import focused on organic treatments, a state of the art Field House fitness center, a yoga and barre studio operated by POE Yoga, and more than 20,000 square feet of meeting and event space, including a 50-seat screening room.
“The 1 Hotels brand aims to show sophisticated travelers they can live well, do good, and respect the community around them while helping each other create a greener world,” said 1 Hotels founder and SH Group CEO Barry Sternlicht. “As our first brand new development, 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge is the true realization of our vision for 1 Hotels and quite possibly the best hotel I have ever done. The Brooklyn community is known for their vitality and innovation in health, wellness and eco-friendly practices. We are incredibly excited to be a part
of this thriving community.”
As with every 1 Hotel, 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge is committed to sustainability and protecting the environment. The property is being built under LEED guidelines, and will boast a LEED Dynamic Plaque. 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge will operate its own rain-water reclamation system and feature low-energy lightbulbs, a triple-filtered water purification system, in-room recycling bins and fresh dining offerings.
In addition to the opening of 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, 1 Hotels is working on the development of three new sustainable properties, including its first international location, which will be announced in the upcoming weeks.
According to Kemper Hyers, SVP of Design at Starwood Capital Group, the signature 1 Hotels design will be given an “industrial edge” in Brooklyn.
A testament to the strength of Brooklyn’s vibrant creative community, the property will draw upon its natural surroundings and local borough neighborhoods for design inspiration:
Local Brooklyn artisans including, Uhuru, Bien Hecho, Harrison Green and Danielle Trofe, will incorporate native greenery and reclaimed materials for dynamic art sculptures and a massive living green wall in the lobby.
The design of the hotel will make extensive use of regional and reclaimed materials, including original heart pine beams from the former Domino Sugar Factory, walnut from the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and pine flooring from the Old Crow Distillery in Kentucky.
Rooms will feature native trees and filtered water taps, and public spaces will incorporate nature on display as art throughout the hotel, similar to the brand’s 1 Hotel South Beach and 1 Hotel Central Park properties.
The rooftop of the property will welcome hotel guests and locals to its 4,000 square-foot lush retreat of native plants. With unobstructed views of the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Skyline, the rooftop will be designed both for daytime and nighttime programming, featuring an invisible edge plunge pool with day beds, a bar and lounge with rocking chairs, fire pits to watch the night go by while looking at the Statue of Liberty, and an open event space for private events and weddings.
One floor below the rooftop, connected by a glass enclosed staircase, the hotel will unveil an indoor 10th floor cocktail lounge that will feature local craft cocktails and small bites, upon opening.
1 Hotels are pet friendly, naturally. Guests can take a complimentary ride in hotels’ Tesla premium electric vehicles, or valet their bicycle.
