InterContinental Hotels Group has acquired a Downtown Brooklyn site where it will build an 83,000-square-foot, 204-room hotel, the hotelier said Tuesday.

The 13-floor hotel will offer amenities such as public workspaces, a bar and gym facilities, and will be developed under InterContinental’s Even Hotels brand.

“As the third largest central business district in New York City and a strong commercial and residential development market that continues to gain momentum, Brooklyn was a natural and very purposeful location for Even Hotels,” Kirk Kinsell, InterContinental’s president of the Americas, said in a release.

InterContinental has already begun construction at the Brooklyn location, the company said. The company is developing two more Even hotels at West 35th Street and East 44th Street in Midtown, and is in talks with Raber Enterprises to develop a 25-story, 250-room hotel in Midtown West as a Crowne Plaza, as The Real Deal reported.  – Hiten Samtani
