The Brooklyn Sheraton

This new 25-story, 150,000 sq. ft. hotel includes 308 hotel guestrooms, each offering a contemporary design and relaxed living space. The hotel lobby, ballroom and restaurant that were located on the 1st floor were accommodated in the design. Sheraton Brooklyn Hotel will be a full-service hotel located near all of Brooklyn’s business and leisure attractions and within easy reach of major airports and Midtown Manhattan. Adjacent to downtown Brooklyn’s MetroTech Center as well as the historic neighborhood of Brooklyn Heights. The structure consists of cast in place concrete and is supported on a mat foundation. In order to maximize floor to floor height and in order to reduce overall cost, the job was value engineered and the tower slabs’ thickness was reduced to 7 inches. The hotel features double basement. The foundation rest approximately 30 feet below grade. That condition presented a challenge when designing the necessary underpinning of the adjacent buildings and the support of the site during the excavation.
