Brooklyn North Capital has filed applications for a 14-story, 198-key hotel at 38-15 9th Street, in the Ravenswood section of Long Island City, located six blocks from the 21st Street-Queensbridge stop on the F train. The new 82,586-square-foot building would rise on a 124-foot-wide, 12,483-square-foot assemblage located mid-block. Red Lion Hotels Corporation will operate the hotel, according to The Real Deal. The hotel rooms will be located between the second and 13th floors, with amenities hosted on the remaining levels. Specifically, the cellar will contain a fitness center, banquet rooms, and accessory office and storage space; the ground floor will host a coffee shop, a restaurant/bar with outdoor seating, and storage for six bikes; finally, there will be another outdoor bar on the 14th floor. Completion of the building is expected in 2019. Five two-story brick apartment buildings – spanning 38-15 – 38-23 9th Street – must first be demolished.

A pre-war apartment complex in Jackson Heights, Queens is coming back to life. It’s the six-building development known as Washington Plaza, and with sales having started on Monday, we have a first look at its co-op residences.
The mid-rise interior of Long Island City’s skyscraper district at Queens Plaza/Court Square is about to get another addition in the form of a six-story, eight-unit building at 42-43 27th Street. The builder, New York Fast General Construction, lives up to their name as construction is moving at a rapid pace. When we last checked in at the beginning of March, excavation was only starting. Now, a month and a half later, more than half of the foundation walls in the basement are complete, with metal rebar ready for assembly of the ground floor.
Back in February, YIMBY reported on applications for a four-story, three-unit residential building at 10-27 47th Road, in the Hunters Point section of Long Island City. The site’s two-story predecessor has since been demolished, and schematic drawings have been posted on-site, The Court Square Blog reports. All of the apartments in the 5,000-square-foot project will be duplexes, averaging a spacious 1,667 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. The structure, as seen in the drawings, will be topped by a roof terrace. Ascent Development is behind the project, while Hudson Square-based Jorge Mastropieto Atelier is the architect. Excavation has not yet begun, but completion is expected in January of 2017.
