A schematic depiction of the hotel planned at 149-03 Archer Avenue, located on the corner of 149th Street in downtown Jamaica, has been posted on the construction fence. Since YIMBY initially reported on applications for the project, it has been scaled down from 18 to eight stories and 283 to 128 rooms. The building permits indicate it will encompass 139,192 square feet and rise 91 feet above street level, not including the bulkhead.
Guest amenities include a fitness center, a restaurant, laundry facilities, a meeting room, 12 off-street parking spaces, storage for 11 bicycles, two lounges on the second floor, a solarium, and a rooftop terrace with a bar. Jamaica-based Pride Hospitality Group is the developer and Manish S. Savani’s Jamaica-based architecture firm is the architect of record. Completion is expected in 2017.
