It seems like just yesterday that Bushwick became the new refuge for bohemian artists and their weird scrap metal sculptures, yet now real-estate prognosticators say the ’hood is already transforming into a hub for tech entrepreneurs and their start-ups.
Check out the future face of the nabe:
• Four hotels are planned for the neighborhood — Bklyn House, an eight-story, 116-room hotel boasting “local art inspired by the neighborhood,” will open soon on Beaver Street at Fayette Street. And separate developers have also filed plans for a 112-key lodging on White Street at McKibbon Street, a 140-key hotel on Stewart Avenue at Flushing Avenue, and a 144-key hotel on Seigel Street between Bushwick Avenue and White Street.
• Developer Bushwack Capital plans to gussy up a decrepit warehouse on Johnson Avenue between Gardner and Scott streets and turn it into a nightclub with two performance spaces, a restaurant, and multiple bars, according to plans it filed with the city. It also intends to transform another warehouse on Scott Avenue into high-end nightlife spot housing a winery, beer garden, event hall, restaurant, and office space — a project it is partially financing via a crowd-funding campaign.
• Upcoming Bushwick eateries include a Le Garage — a fancy French bistro inside a graffitied old garage on Central Avenue — a second outlet of Prospect Heights high-end ramen joint Chuko, and a sprawling cafe and roastery from San Fransiscan tech-industry-favorite coffee emporium Blue Bottle.
