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.
Soundview Partners has filed applications for a three-story, two-unit residential building at 39-32 28th Street, north of Court Square in Long Island City. The project will encompass 3,313 square feet of residential space, and Arc Architecture + Design Studio is designing. An existing two-story brick abode must first be demolished.
