Another hotel is set to become part of the Astoria landscape, with a developer filing plans yesterday for 9-story, 62-key hotel on 24th Street.
The structure, which is planned for 37-00 24th St., will be 108 feet tall and will include 24,000 square feet of commercial/hotel space, with 3,700 square feet are designated for a “house of worship.”
Demolition permits for the existing 1-story brick commercial building were filed in June.
The hotel rooms will be on the building’s first floor and floors three through seven. The hotel’s lobby will be on the first floor, and an employee room, business center, office and breakfast area will be in the cellar.
The house of worship’s lobby will be located on the first floor, and its office and assembly room will be on the structure’s second floor.
The property is seven blocks from the 36th Avenue (N/W) subway station.
Lin Jieng Zhang is listed as the property’s owner; Ameriland Brook LLC is responsible for the design.
The neighborhood has been a hot spot for hotel development in recent years. Over the last four months, permits have been filed for a 15-story, 385-key hotel at 37-10 10th St.; for a 9-story, 102-room hotel at 38-53 10th St.; and an 8-story, 95-room hotel at 23-15 39th Ave.
