Back in December of 2015, YIMBY reported on the topping out of the 19-story, 176-key Aloft Hotel under development at 27-45 Jackson Avenue, in the Court Square section of Long Island City. Since then, façade installation has been underway and is now being unveiled from scaffolding, The Court Square Blog reports. The 68,160-square-foot complex features a main 19-story structure on Jackson Avenue in addition to a slimmer eight-story counterpart on Hunter Street. Guest amenities include storage for seven bikes, a fitness center, a conference room, and a bar/lounge. Nassim Seliktar is the property owner, while Gene Kaufman Architect is behind the design. Completion is expected within the next few months.
