V3 Hotel Indigo at the former VIM

The V3,designed by Karl Fischer, will be built to accommodate 90,000 sq ft. that's 180 “high-end, amenity rich” rooms.

"The 180-room new hotel is one of at least seven planned for Downtown Brooklyn. On Oct. 31, the Eagle broke the news about the new Holiday Inn planned for 300 Schermerhorn St. (see list below). At a Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce forum on Oct. 16, moderator Joe Chan, president of the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership, reported that there are 1,250 hotel rooms currently under development in Downtown Brooklyn. The list of hotel rooms that follows raises that total to 1,950 and it doesn’t include the 100-200 hotel rooms that have been discussed for Brooklyn Bridge Park, near Pier 1; or the 48 rooms — in the works for some time — at 262-276 Atlantic Ave. near Boerum Place, which so far have been denied a variance.
