The Pierhouse, a mixed use hotel and condo project on the outskirts of Brooklyn Bridge Park's Pier 1 has reached a topping out milestone for the hotel portion at the northern portion of the site. Starwood will manage the 10 story, 200 key hotel under the 1 Hotel brand. Marvel Architects is in charge of the design with INC Architecture and Design providing interior design services.  The hotel will include a 12,000 square foot event space and a farm-to-table restaurant from Seamus Mullen, owner and chef of Tertulia in the West Village and contestant on the Food Network's The Next Iron Chef. Metal and glass will be the dominant material for the exterior façade of the hotel.

Attached to the hotel on the southern portion of the site are two condo buildings, also designed by Marvel Architects, that flank either side of the Squibb Park Bridge (recently closed to pedestrian traffic due to construction). When completed, the condos will bring 108 units, mostly duplexes ranging from one to five bedrooms. Amenities for the condos include: yoga room, multiple gyms, outdoor terrace designed by Michael Van Valkenberg, several lounges, on-site underground parking and bike storage. In contrast to the metal and glass of the hotel, the façade of the condo buildings will be clad in limestone for the park-facing elevation, with anodized aluminum panel on the Furman Street elevation.

Completion of the project is expected in 2015.
