Tennessee-based Chartwell Hospitality has filed applications for two hotel buildings that would rise on the roughly 80,000 square-foot parking lot immediately east of the Hilton New York JFK Airport, located at 144-02 135th Avenue in South Jamaica. The larger hotel planned is an 11-story, 362-key building measuring 158,892 square feet in total. Rooms would average 439 square feet apiece. The second hotel would be a 12-story, 183-key structure measuring 84,664 square feet. In that building, rooms would average a slightly larger 463 square feet apiece. Gene Kaufman is the architect of record for both hotels, according to The Real Deal.
The Gural family is planning to reconfigure and make upgrades to their six-story, 122,454 square-foot commercial property at 560 Broadway, in SoHo, according to Crain’s. The building, built in 1890 and located within the SoHo-Cast Iron Historic District, will have its main entrance moved to Crosby Street. In the process, Converse – one of two ground-floor retail tenants – will gain 1,500 square feet of space and 30 feet of street frontage. In addition, two of the building’s four stairwells will be removed in exchange for elevators and 8,000 square feet of extra office space. The Landmarks Preservation Commission would have to approve the project, which would also rename the building to 100 Crosby Street. Rosen Johnson Architects is designing.
