It appears that work is on hold at 21-16 44th Drive, aka 21-18 44th Drive, a mixed-use property in Long Island City, Queens. Construction only reached the sixth floor and still has two more levels to go before topping out. Designed by C3D Architecture and developed by Amsterdam Hospitality, the project is slated to yield a mix of ground-floor retail space, 40 hotel rooms measuring around 250 square feet each, and 29 homes averaging just under 700 square feet apiece. YIMBY last reported on the project in August 2015, when permits were filed for its construction.
