The William Vale

Construction is wrapping up at Zelig Weiss and Riverside Developers’ The William Vale, a 21-story, 250-foot tower at 111 North 12th Street, in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn.

View from the East River.

Designed by Albo Liberis, the mixed-use tower includes a 183-key four-star hotel at the top half. A duplex presidential suite occupies the top two floors, with a double height view of Brooklyn and the Manhattan skyline. The grand opening for the hotel is slated for July 11.

Retail, Amenity, and Public Green Space

At the base of the tower, hotel guests will find resort-class amenities along with 20,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space. A 15,000 square foot rooftop garden will provide green space to the public and will be accessible from a stair that cuts through the retail space. Included on the rooftop space, the hotel pool will be the longest hotel pool in the city at 60 feet.
