A rendering has been spotted on the construction fence of the development site at 97-01 Waltham Street, in downtown Jamaica. An eight-story, 58-key hotel project is planned, per the latest building permits. The new building will measure 31,346 square feet and rise 85 feet above street level to its roof. Guest amenities include a fitness center, a business center, two off-street parking spaces, and storage for five bikes. There will also be a 2,379-square-foot “social club” on the ground floor. Nehalkumar Gandhi’s North Bergen, N.J.-based LLC is the developer and Gerald J. Caliendo’s Briarwood-based firm is the architect of record. Completion is currently scheduled for 2017.
