Developer Charles Blaichman of CB Developers is looking to build a five-story, 255-room hotel in Williamsburg.

The nearly 71,000-square-foot site at 626 Driggs Avenue, near North 4th Street, features 83 parking spots, A Roof Terrace, a courtyard and a restaurant. Dumbo-based Garrison Architects was tapped to design the project, which will also have retail on the ground floor.

In September, Blaichman paid Fishman Holdings nearly $69 million for a Midtown East development site at 50th Street and Second Avenue where permits are in place for a 29-story residential building, as previously reported. [Brownstoner]Mark Maurer
