The Duffield Indigo Hotel

This new 22 story, 110,000 square feet of space boutique hotel located at 237 Du­ffield Street, Brooklyn, NY has 170 amenity-rich rooms, a rooftop bar, a swanky restaurant and 17,000 sq. ft. of new retail space. The Duffield Indigo Hotel will be a fresh new addition to the ever growing and expansive Downtown Brooklyn skyline. The geometry of this building and the need for high ceilings made the cast in place concrete system very appealing. Th­e hotel has a green roof with a restaurant. ­The lateral system (wind and earthquake) of this cast-in-place structure was especially challenging due to the height of the building and the relatively small amount and total length of shear walls; innovative solutions were found based on extensive 3D modeling of the building behavior. Th­e building’s foundation consists of a reinforced concrete mat.
