A developer has filed plans to build an eight story, 85-room hotel in Dutch Kills– near the Best Western and Howard Johnson.
The hotel will take up two lots, 38-22 and 38-26 11th Street, and is within a third of mile from the 21st Street-Queensbridge station. The property’s owner is listed as 38-26 11th Street LLC.
The current site is an empty lot and demolition is not required.
The hotel is being designed by Michael Kang Architect. A completion date has not been announced.
YOU HAVE BEEN DUPED HOMELESS HOTEL COMING TO A NEIGHBORHOOD NEAR YOU!!! DEVELOPER WILL RUSH CONSTRUCTION TO RIDE THE DHS HOMELESS HOTEL WAREHOUSING WAVE AND MAKE THAT MONEY.. INSTEAD OF BUILDING REAL AFFORDABLE HOUSING THE CITY RATHER PAY ON AVERAGE $200 PER NIGHT TO HOUSE A HOMELESS PERSON THAN SUBSIDIZE AFFORDABLE HOUSING FOR THE WORKING POOR. WHY NOT BUILD 85 MICRO APARTMENTS RENT THEM FOR $500, $600 PER MONTH TO WORKING PROPERLY SCREENED PEOPLE? DEVELOPERS KNOW THEY CAN MAKE A MILLION OR MORE PER YEAR BY HAVING THE CITY LEASE THEIR HOTELS WITH OUR HARD EARNED TAX DOLLARS.
More hotels in Queens = less, but more expensive housing.
This is not Center Blvd in LIC. No one is going to overpay to be so close to Con ED.
DIBLOWSIO !!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT A CREEP !!!!!!!!!!
corrupt smug pos mayor
What’s that say about the cities residents?
HERE COMES THE SHELTER ! ! ! ! !
and this is Jimmy Van Bramer’s territory more money in his pockets and if it becomes a homeless shelter I bet he knows all about it and will deny it –
anonymous- Jimmy won, eat your heart out. Your weak and anonymous propaganda campaign hasn’t helped your crusade.
I’m always astounded by how someone would build a hotel a block away from the projects. Hopefully not a homeless shelter in waiting.
It’s called gentrification…
No, its called greed and bad zoning.
