A new Marriott Residence Inn near John F. Kennedy International Airport in Queens will soon be complete following two years of steady construction. Located at 142-30 135th Avenue in South Ozone Park, the hotel is designed by Gene Kaufman Architect and was originally expected to debut this year.
The 12-story building will comprise approximately 300,000 square feet with 182 guest rooms. The hotel will allow for extended stay reservations and will feature a selection of larger rooms with kitchenettes. Amenities include a meeting room, a communal lounge, a fitness room, and outdoor space surrounding a fire pit and designated breakfast areas.
The façade of the building is primarily comprised of gray brick with white accents scattered throughout and bands of red brick bordering all of the windows.
As previously reported by YIMBY, Soundview Real Estate Partners and Chartwell Hospitality are responsible for the development. The new hotel will be the second building designed by Gene Kaufman near the airport after the Crowne Plaza JFK, which opened in 2014. Considering that most of the hotels in the area are older, the forthcoming Marriott Residence Inn will provide a fresh, updated experience for travelers.

Just when you think Kaufman can’t do any worse…
Oh, come on! This is what he was born to make: crap by the airport. Is “Suburban Strip Mall and Office Park” an architectural style?
Amazing how much a box of Legos can “inspire” an “architect” to create another example of
I would suggest before we attempt to find a vaccine/cure for Convid-19, we try to find a way to stop Kaufman’s “disease” from spreading! These atrocities are going up everywhere.
No question: Kaufman is the worst architect practicing today.
How does he keep getting work??
Put all his stuff out by the airport
