Michaelis Boyd designs The Williamsburg Hotel in Brooklyn, NY

Heritage Equity Partners (HEP) announced the scheduled opening within the year of The Williamsburg Hotel in Brooklyn, New York. Located at the corner of Wythe Ave. and North 10th St., this eight-story, 150-room development will have a restaurant, rooftop pool, the neighborhood's first grand ballroom, and three bars including one in a replica water tower built to pay homage to the block's historic, but now defunct, wooden water tower factory.

Designed by London-based design firm Michaelis Boyd (Babington House UK, Soho House Berlin), the property will feature a brick, glass and Corten steel exterior. The inside will ground sophisticated double-height ceilings with natural finishes.

The new-build urban resort will be overseen by managing directors Evan Altman and James Stuart — who both worked on Ian Schrager’s Gramercy Park Hotel — and developed by HEP.
