Plans Filed for 116-Room Hotel Blocks From Queensboro Bridge

38-59 11th St. (ZOLA)

April 2, 2018 By Nathaly Pesantez

Permits have been filed for a 116-room hotel in Long Island City.

The new hotel would rise to 16 stories, or 179 feet, at 38-59 11th St. The site, currently vacant land, is two blocks from the Queensboro Bridge.

The plans call for a hotel spanning over 54,000 square feet, with eight rooms each from floors two through 14. The remaining two floors will hold six rooms.

The hotel will also come with a breakfast area, a business center, a fitness and laundry room, and 31 enclosed parking spaces.

The developer is listed as Teddy Li, who is also constructing a nine-story, 61-room hotel in Chinatown, according to YIMBY. Li also filed similar permits for a 16-story hotel at the site in 2014.

The new addition to the line up of Long Island City hotels will be designed by Gene Kaufman Architect, based in Manhattan.

Records show the property was purchased from Pyco Properties, LLC or $6.2 million in 2013.

The developer did not immediately respond to questions on the project.
