A new hotel in Brooklyn, New York, will open its doors to guests in May. The boutique hotel 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge will be the flagship property of 1 Hotels and boasts 194 rooms in a new-build property that looks out onto the the famous New York skyline and the Statue of Liberty. Designed by INC Architecture & Design, the hotel seeks to embody Brooklyn, from its sustainable design to the food it serves. Spread over 10 floors, the hotel is located just a stone's throw away from the iconic Brooklyn Bridge and guests can avail of all of the sights and sounds that the East River and Brooklyn has to offer.

In keeping with the traditional industrial character of the area, 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge has been designed using many reclaimed materials from nearby factories, which are juxtaposed with sustainable and environmentally friendly details, such as a living green wall in the lobby and the ground floor Meadow Rue Ballroom, which has retractable windows, allowing the space to open onto the Brooklyn Bridge Park.

The group clearly has taken the demand for sustainable travel to heart in this project. 1 Hotels founder and CEO Barry Sternlicht says of the property, "As our first brand new development, 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge is the true realisation 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." A rainwater collection system has been installed and low-energy devices are used throughout the hotel. The hoteliers have worked with Seamus Mullen in the kitchen and restaurant design, and the hotel will also house a rooftop swimming pool and bar, four restaurants, a wellness centre and meeting spaces.
