East New York might be considered one of Brooklyn’s hot up and coming neighborhoods, but the hotel/motel blitz might slow down the hotness. Over the past few years a number of Brooklyn hotels have added rooms for the NYC shelter program. East New York has more shelters than most New York City neighborhoods, and just about every hotel in the neighborhood is part hotel/part shelter, adding to the growth of shelter living in the area.
According to New York Nimby, more than 130 hotel units are coming to East New York according to new construction permits recently filed by hotel developer Nehalkumar Gandhi.
Two more hotels will be located at 51 and 55 Sheffield Ave, between Fulton St and Atlantic Ave.
According to the New York Nimby article, the proposed building at 51 Sheffield Avenue will be 85 feet tall with 63 units across eight stories, totaling 24,268 square feet. The structure at 55 Sheffield Avenue will nine stories at 95 feet tall with 70 units, totaling 26,763 square feet. Both projects will have rear yards of 34 feet and no enclosed parking on the interior lots. Architect Michael Kang will be designing the two hotels.
