Permits have been filed for an eight-story hotel building at 95-10 218th Street, in Jamaica, Queens. Located near the corner of Jamaica Avenue and 218th Street, the new hotel is one block west of the Queens Village station on the LIRR, serviced by the Hempstead and Oyster Bay lines. Hotel developer Amritpal Sandhu is listed as the owner behind the applications. He previously filed permits for an eight-story hotel at this location in 2016.
Permits have been filed for a three-story, 85-key hotel at 5244 Kings Highway, in East Flatbush, Brooklyn. The site is a nine-minute bicycle ride from the Flatbush Avenue subway station, end of the line for the 2 and 5 trains, and center of a major commercial intersection. Brooklyn College’s campus is just across from the station. Amritpal Sandhu is listed as behind the applications.
Development rarely happens in eastern Queens near the Long Island border, but one developer has staked a claim in Queens Village, a suburban neighborhood next to Nassau County. New building applications were filed last week for an eight-story hotel at 95-10 218th Street, across the street from the Queens Village stop on the Long Island Rail Road. The building will practically touch the elevated rail tracks once it rises on a lot between Jamaica and 98th avenues. The plans call for 68 hotel rooms squeezed into 21,108 square feet of commercial space. An average room there would measure just over 300 square feet. The cellar would hold four rooms, and each of the upper floors would have eight rooms.
Development in Brownsville is starting to pick up, and it might have something to do with the big rezoning set to transform East New York next door. Today we’ve come across plans for a seven-story hotel at 120 Thatford Avenue, between Pitkin and Belmont avenues.
Ten years after the city rezoned a desolate, industrial section of the South Bronx waterfront, the area is on the edge of a major transformation. The latest evidence of that change comes with an application to build a 12-story hotel at 82 Brown Place, between Bruckner Boulevard and the Harlem River freight yards.
