Welcome to our business column, where we’ll share news on expansions, new biz, pop-ups, art shows, and recent closures.
Bond Townhouse & Garden @ Boerum Hill
A landmark townhouse in Boerum Hill was reimagined and developed by MySuites & Co into The Bond Townhouse & Garden, a luxury small-scale hotel. The new hotel claims to be “not your Airbnb or typical boutique hotel.” The suites are serviced apartments, with an array of amenities that work well for long-term stays and include services typical of a hotel, but feel like home. Just with four two-bedrooms suites and a private landscaped garden, you can request a membership to become part of the modern home-share here.
