Two More Hotels to Go Up on Astoria/LIC Border, According to Buildings Dept.

38-53 10th St. (Google)

June 4, 2018 By Christian Murray

Building permits have recently been filed for the construction of two hotels slated to go up on property located on the border of Long Island City and Astoria.

An application was filed Friday for a nine-story, 102-room hotel to be built at 38-53 10th St.  The property was bought last month by Amritpal Sandhu, who has developed hotels throughout the city.

Sandhu’s firm 10 Street NY LLC paid $3.7 million for the property, according to building records. The firm purchased it from Cirpriani Queens, which acquired the property in 2003 for $740,000.

The second hotel is slated to go up at 23-15 39th Ave., according to a May 31 filing. That building will be eight stories, with 95 hotel rooms.

The property is being developed by Surjeet Kaur whose firm bought the property for $4,075,000 earlier this year.

This is a major problem hotels being built not for tourists but for the homeless which the city anticipates will increase and the taxpaying NYer’s will foot the bill. Guaranteed that these two buildings will house the homeless in your district – this is what has happened in Blissville Section in Long Island City.


Sure Trump?, has been happening for 10 years now in LIC. Welcome to the neighborhood!


Joe, did you give yourself that thumbs up/up vote? Just curious. And if you did more power to you


Another example of how Danold Trlump is making America and the neyborhood great again!! this kind of development was not happening a few yeares ago. On the wright track. Drump Train: choo chio


And undocumented workers are probably also involved in building it! So there is a bright side to all this. Families will be fed and bills will be paid.


Issa is a lair. No undocumented workers in queens. Trumpf wouldn’t have that in his home burrow
