Regenerative Impact

The spirit of Brooklyn runs deep in Wythe hotel, where emphasis is placed on community to provide an authentic experience that echoes the energy and creativity of its home.

One of the hotel’s most notable features is its adaptive reuse design that preserves the building’s century-old industrial roots. The hotel has retained the original features of the building, such as the exposed brick walls, cast iron columns, wooden ceilings, and arched windows, and has beautifully showcased them. Wythe Hotel also hired local craftsmen to repurpose materials found in the building’s demolition to create unique and artistic guest room furnishings, adding a touch of local artistry to each room. This initiative aligns with SDG 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities, Target 11.4, which aims to protect and safeguard the world’s cultural and natural heritage.
In keeping with the Williamsburg community’s diverse and inclusive nature, Wythe Hotel places a strong emphasis on hiring a staff from diverse backgrounds. The hotel also supports local organizations through various initiatives, such as providing space, services, and financial donations. During the pandemic, Wythe Hotel opened its doors to medical workers, while its restaurant, Le Crocodile, worked to prepare and deliver meals to a local ICU. This initiative aligns with SDG 10: Reduced Inequalities, Target 10.2, which aims to promote the social, economic, and political inclusion of all, irrespective of age, sex, disability, race, ethnicity, origin, religion or economic or other status.
Beyond its commitment to the community, the Wythe also strives to reduce waste and assist in ecosystem restoration. The hotel’s restaurant, Le Crocodile, partners with the non-profit Billion Oyster Project to reuse discarded shells from oysters, clams, and scallops served in the restaurant. These shells undergo a year-long curing process before being seeded with oyster larvae and placed in reef restoration sites, contributing to the project’s goal of restoring one billion oysters to New York Harbor. This initiative aligns with SDG 14: Life Below Water, Target 14.2, which aims to sustainably manage and protect marine and coastal ecosystems and take action for their restoration.
Wythe Hotel’s commitment to responsible consumption and production is evident in its food waste reduction initiatives. The hotel’s restaurant, Le Crocodile, sources its ingredients from local and sustainable producers and focuses on creating seasonal and inventive menus. Any food waste is composted and used to grow fresh produce, which is then used in the restaurant. This initiative aligns with SDG 12: Responsible Consumption and Production, Target 12.3, which aims to reduce food waste at the retail and consumer levels and reduce food losses along production and supply chains.
In addition to its focus on responsible consumption and production, Wythe Hotel is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for its guests and employees. The hotel has implemented a variety of health and safety measures, including contactless check-in and check-out, increased cleaning protocols, and providing personal protective equipment for staff. This initiative aligns with SDG 3: Good Health and Well-being, Target 3.8, which aims to achieve universal health coverage, including financial risk protection, access to quality essential health-care services, and access to safe, effective, quality, and affordable essential medicines and vaccines for all.
