Nehalhumar Gandhi, doing business as a New Jersey-based LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, 67-key hotel at 646 Gerard Avenue, in the Concourse, located three blocks north of the 149 Street – Grand Concourse stop on the 2, 4, and 5 trains. The project will measure 18,556 square feet in total, and hotel rooms will average 277 square feet apiece. Guests will have access to traditional hotel amenities on the ground and cellar level, and they will also be conveniently located a few blocks south of Yankee Stadium. Flushing-based Michael Kang is the architect of record. A single-story commercial building was filed for demolition this past October.

  1. You mean homeless shelter.

  2. ENY – maybe you missed it – but there is a place called Yankee Stadium up the street which draws many out of towners. That’s partly why there is a Holiday Inn Express and a Hampton Inn being built a block away from this. The Days Inn on the other side of the Stadium has been around for years. Still hasn’t been a homeless shelter yet. Get up to speed.

    Yea, just like the motel next to ‘Fort Appache’ police station which has been housing homeless people for the past 20 years. And yes, it’s only 3 blocks from Yankee Stadium. So wake up and smell the coffee. The homeless situation in NYC is a big business. 90% of these people are not really homeless, just spend a few minutes everyday in front of the homeless shelter on Walton Avenue & E.151 Street and you will see these “homeless” people stepping out of BMW, Mercedes Benz, Escalades, and I even saw a Hummer with Florida plates the other day. And the City can not house all these “homeless” people so they pay top dollars at a hotel to house them. BIG BUSINESS for hotels. So wake up and take the sheets off you face, because the 67 room, 4 story hotel being built on Getard Avenue & E.151 Street, is no other than an annex for the homeless shelter already there across the street.
