Murals by Local Artists Transform NU Hotel Brooklyn Guestrooms

Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) October 25, 2012

A hotel room with a view of the Manhattan Bridge, the Brooklyn Bridge and the Williamsburg Savings Bank? Thats geographically impossible! Not at NU Hotel Brooklyn, where guests can immerse themselves in the borough when they stay in select guestrooms painted with Brooklyn-themed murals from floor to ceiling.

As part of the NU Perspectives project, the 93-room boutique hotel has given creative license to three local artists and it is looking for three more artists to liven up the largest guestrooms.

We are so proud of our location and are always looking for ways to celebrate Brooklyn. Having local art on our walls is something the hotel has embraced since the day we opened, said Javier Egipciaco, NU Hotel Brooklyns general manager. Were just taking it a step further this time.

The hotels white walls and loft-like design serve as a blank canvas on which artists can put their signature creations. The murals give the rooms color and an edge, while maintaining a comfortable feel and a uniquely Brooklyn look.

Craig Anthony Miller, whose style is influenced by stained glass and graffiti, was the first artist to participate in the program. Adam Suerte, a legend in the Brooklyn art scene and proprietor of Brooklyn Tattoo, created a mural that depicts three nearby Brooklyn landmarks: the Manhattan Bridge, the Brooklyn Bridge and the Williamsburg Savings Bank. The artist also created a time-lapse video which can be found on his website. The most recent mural was created by another Brooklyn-based artist, Steven Weinberg. Weinbergs mural showcases a Brooklyn streetscape, complete with brownstones, caf?s, shops, and even the F train rumbling beneath the streets. Check out his time-lapse video on his blog.

NU Hotel Brooklyns sales manager, Jennifer Goodman, is coordinating NU Perspectives and is also leading the search for more artists. Theres no mistaking where you are when you sleep in one of these rooms, said Goodman. We cant wait to see submissions from other artists! These rooms are really helping us create memorable and lasting Brooklyn experiences for all our guests.

At this time, guests can request to reserve a NU Perspectives room by calling the hotel for availability. Once all six rooms are complete, guests will be able to book specific NU Perspectives rooms via the hotels website. Artists interested in participating in NU Perspectives should email the hotel at info(at)nuhotelbrooklyn(dot)com with their information and samples of their work.

42,000 Condo Hotel units Under Construction/Conversion in The USA But Is there Enough Mortgage Money to Fund the Boom

Birmingham, MI (PRWEB) November 6, 2005

Vacation Finance is the first National Mortgage Lender to capitalize on the condo hotel mortgage market niche. By initiating unique condominium lending program at condo hotel projects, with no minimum square footage or kitchen requirement.

“We understand why buyers choose a condo hotel for their vacation home, and it has less to do with square footage than with amenities, service and location. We believe that Condo Hotel and resort/fractional/timeshare second homes options will be a wave of the future, embraced by retiring baby boomers as the retirement residence of choice. These options are the most flexible and financially efficient ways to enjoy vacation/retirement ownership, and has all the benefits of a traditional second home, with less expense and hassles,” said Bob Waun, CEO to the group of development experts.

Condo Hotels are one part full-service hotel/resort, and one part traditional luxury condominium. Condo Hotel owners enjoy full residential ownership rights and rental income without the effort of rental management.

Vacation Finance executives have published an extensive research paper on the subject “Condo Hotel: 2nd Home Choice of The Baby Boom Generation.” The company has also signed co-branding agreements with 2 major Condo Hotel Developers to provide unique lending services.

Vacation Finance and its strategic partner, ReFund, LLC have arranged $ 4.75 million mezzanine capital for condo hotel projects in the last 3 months, expanding its commitment to this new market, and approved over $ 20mm in end mortgages in this same period. Vacation Finance Risk Management is the first US lender to offer a TRUE condo hotel consumer insurance policy. Vacation Finance Commerical is actively working with condo hotel developers providing acquisition and construction financing.

Vacation Finance also recently announced the opening of offices in Florida to better serve this booming vacation home market. “We plan to strategically expand in all the best vacation markets, but since money is fluid and portable, we will stay very virtual – investing in people not bricks and mortar” said Waun.

With new condo hotel projects in almost every highly desirable resort market, Condo Hotel construction and conversion is a real estate trend. Vacation Finance is a wholly owned division of Americor Financial Services, founded in 1987.
