1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge:
A Case Study

Brooklyn, NY

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.

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 architect of 1 Hotel. Putting the visitor experience at the forefront of the approach for this unique waterfront destination, the design team worked in collaboration with Marvel Architects and Inc. Architecture & Design.

    The newly re-imagined Brooklyn Bridge Park has brought with it opportunities for modern, socially connected mixed-use and multi-family residential development. 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. Perkins Eastman’s waterfront design expertise played a crucial role in re-envisioning this vital community locale.

    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.
