A new hotel is coming to 233 Norman Avenue in Greenpoint.

Plans are in the works to turn a four-story warehouse on the corner of Norman Avenue and Henry Street into a hotel, which will include a rooftop bar.

Architect Robert Scarano is behind the 58-room revamp of the old industrial building. Signs announcing the Henry Norman Hotel, and its rooftop, have been plastered around the neighborhood, according to local blog FreeWilliamsburg. Owner Joe Torres already owns and operates Brooklyn’s Box Hotel, which is also a converted warehouse.

Plans to convert the building have been in the works since 2006. In 2013 permits for the conversion were re-approved by the city. [FreeWilliamsburg] – Claire Moses
