The $80 million 246-room Holiday Inn Brooklyn Nevins Station topped out yesterday at 300 Schermerhorn Street in Downtown Brooklyn. The Gene Kaufman Architect-designed hotel is slated to open in mid-2015.

“This new hotel is a poignant moment in the much-heralded transformation of Downtown Brooklyn,” said Gene Kaufman, founder of Gene Kaufman Architect, in a prepared statement. “This full-service Holiday Inn, featuring premium amenities such as a swimming pool, first-class dining venues and event spaces as well as a duplex penthouse presidential suite, is a clear sign that Brooklyn has become an international destination in its own right.”

Ground was broken for the project last October. The 90,000-square-foot, 246-room hotel will span 15 floors with more than 3,000 square feet of meeting and event space.

The Holiday Inn Brooklyn Nevins Station hotel, owned by 300 Schermerhorn Realty LLC and managed by New York Hotel Management LLC, is franchised by an affiliate of InterContinental Hotels Group.
