Baltic Huis, a 33-room boutique hotel, is set to open in Brooklyn’s Gowanus neighborhood in December of 2017. The hotel’s informed design will blend industrial integrity, comfortable design and cutting-edge technology with a strong sense of locality. Minimalists seeking comfort and innovation can embrace a true Brooklyn experience that blends old and new.
Nestled among the sharp-edged, graffiti covered relics of the Industrial Revolution; the property will embody the neighborhood’s history as the heart of industry in New York City. Located at 489 Baltic Street, Baltic Huis (Huis meaning “House” or “Home” in Dutch) will be a short walk from what was one of the world’s most integral gateways to commerce, the Gowanus Canal.
Work, Experience & Explore
Celebrating the neighborhood around the canal that has for generations served as inspiration for a slew of resourceful New Yorkers and all manner of Gowanusians, communal pursuits will lure guests from their rooms to the hotel’s backyard garden and red brick patio. Nestled between longtime local residents, the hotel will be a house of serene surprise and inclusivity, an adult playground with neighborhood cookouts and pig roasts, community garden parties and more.
Honoring the neighborhood’s emergence as a creative hotspot, Baltic Huis will offer co-working space in the subterranean coffee hot spot as well as enlist local purveyors of adult-fun from Gotham Archery to Brooklyn Boulders to Brooklyn Paranormal Society to provide experiences inside and beyond the hotel walls. Complimentary Citi-Bike passes and custom maps of local graffiti and history tours encourage on-peddle exploration of one of the city’s most bike-friendly boroughs.
