1 Hotel - Brooklyn Bridge Park / Perkins Eastman

1 Hotel - Brooklyn Bridge Park

Brooklyn, New York
On the Brooklyn waterfront where vistas of the Manhattan skyline and access points to diverse neighborhoods converge, Perkins Eastman created a destination with industrial character that reflects distinctive local influences as the hotel architect of 1 Hotel. As waterfronts across the U.S. face massive shifts, sustainable and resilient design approaches like those used in the hotel’s creation will serve as a model for the future.

The newly re-imagined Brooklyn Bridge Park has brought with it opportunities for modern, socially connected mixed-use and multi-family residential development. Sitting on Pier 1 between the Brooklyn Heights Promenade and the Brooklyn Bridge, 1 Hotel is a new destination for New Yorkers and visitors alike.

Perkins Eastman put the guest experience at the forefront of our approach for this unique waterfront destination, working in collaboration with Marvel Architects and Inc. Architecture & Design. To honor Brooklyn’s past and celebrate its present and future, the design team paid homage to the waterfront’s industrial history with elements that allow guests to experience a touch of old New York amongst modern amenities. More than 190 guest rooms and shared spaces give tribute to the Brooklyn of today through local art, cuisine, and natural elements that connect with the surrounding Brooklyn Bridge Park.

A certified LEED Gold development, the project incorporates numerous sustainable and resilient design approaches including cross ventilation, grey water recycling, and green roof technology, all while maintaining breathtaking city views over the East River.
