489 Baltic Street in Brooklyn

Developer Alec Shtromandel, who is bringing the Union Hotel in Gowanus, has plans for another hotel in Brooklyn – this time in Boerum Hill.

The four-story building at 489 Baltic Street, between Nevins and Bond streets, would hold 34 hotel rooms, according to plans filed late last week that were cited by BuzzBuzzHome. A 5,730-square-foot warehouse dating to the early 1960s currently occupies the 50-foot-by-100-foot site. Soho-based Kutnicki Bernstein Architects was hired to handle design.

Marcus & Millichap brokers Jakub Nowak and Hemal Patel represented the seller and the buyer. A spokesperson for the brokerage said the property is in contract.

Shtromandel partnered with restaurateur Matt Abramcyk to construct a four-story, 82-room hotel will be at 645 Union Street, as was reported last year. [BuzzBuzzHome]Mark Maurer

    Shtromandel, Baltic Hospitality, LLC, is the Project Manger for a hotel being
    built on this site.

    On March 25, 2015, I received a letter stating that the
    space had been purchased and that a new building application would be
    approved as of 4/16/2015. This property back wall butts against the
    rear of my house’s backyard. Upon
    receipt of this letter on 3/27, I called the number listed (201) 873-9357 to inquire
    as to if and how this construction would effect my property. I was informed by Mr. Shtromandel that it
    would not effect my property. During the
    next week I noticed men working on the roof of 485-489 Baltic Street on several
    occasions. On the morning of 4/16/2015 I
    then noticed that all of the ivy that covered their roof and back outer wall
    had been cut and thrown into my yard over telephone and cable wires, and across
    my newly erected shed. You can see where
    they cut it. I called and explained that
    the ivy was not mine because I have owned 500 Warren St. for 40 years and never
    planted ivy. I was told that it is not
    his problem and that I had to call a landscaper. My question, how is this legal. I have called TWC and Verizon, and they will
    not touch the wires or cables until the ivy is removed. How do I resolve this matter? I have many pictures. Thank you for your assistance.
