Construction has started for an eleven-story Marriott hotel at John F. Kennedy International Airport, in Queens. The 270,000-square foot structure will create 540 rooms, along with 4,000 square feet of meeting space, a lounge, a drinking establishment, offices, a fitness center, and parking. Gene Kaufman Architects will be responsible for the exterior design, as well as the interiors, public spaces, and guest rooms.

Gene Kaufman, principal of GKA, noted “the New York City hotel market outperforms other cities year after year, and the demand for hotel rooms continues to expand.”

Soundview Real Estate Partners and Chartwell Hospitality are responsible for the development.

Now that construction is in progress, completion is expected by 2020.

This will be the second building by GKA near the airport, the first being Crowne Plaza JFK, which opened in 2014.

    YES! Relegate Gene Kaufman’s career to designing airport hotels and keep his buildings out of cities!

  2. Please pardon me for using your space: Moving forward not bar beautiful building.
