A sprawling nine-story hotel may replace a collection of vacant lots and industrial buildings in Jamaica, a few blocks south of the LIRR and AirTrain station.
New building applications have been filed for three connected buildings at the corner of 146th Street and 101st Avenue. The development site spans 33,300 square feet and includes properties at 145-01 101st Avenue, 97-46 146th Street and 97-34 Sutphin Boulevard.
The complex will have 129,491 square feet of commercial space and 30,693 square feet of community facilities. The 100-foot-tall buildings will host 398 hotel rooms, a subterranean garage for 153 cars, and surface parking for another 60 cars.
Two of the buildings will have community facility space on the second and third floors, and a third will only have office space on the second floor. The floors that aren’t devoted to offices or community facilities will hold between 16 and 20 rooms each, including the first floor. Parking will occupy part of the cellars, and there will be exercise rooms, offices, storage, laundry and a breakfast area.
The developer is Kaushik Patel of Jamaica-based Vision Asset Group LLC, and he’s hired Shining Tam Architect, based in Borough Park, to handle design. The LLC acquired the three plots for a combined $4,300,000 last year.
