Permits have been filed by an anonymous LLC for a hotel on two lots, at 38-22 and 38-26 11th street, in Long Island City, Queens. The area is popular for hotel construction, and is located just a third of a mile from the 21st street – Queensbridge station, the first stop on the F train as it arrives from Manhattan. Stations serviced by the E, M, and 7 trains are also nearby, as is the burgeoning Hunters Point, which boasts MoMA PS1, Gantry Plaza State Park, and waterfront views of Midtown Manhattan.
The combined projects yield 48,640 square feet of commercial space for the hotel. 85 rooms will be made available on site, with access to the lobby, reception, and business center. Seven parking spaces will also be created, and Michael Kang Architect will be responsible for the design.
An estimated completion date has not been announced.
