12-story hotel planned for Queens Blvd, next to 33rd Street-Rawson Station

Queens Blvd

32-45 Queens Blvd

Dec. 2, 2015 Staff Report

A 12-story hotel is likely to rise on Queens Boulevard across the street from the 33rd Rawson 7-train Station

The site, located at 32-45 Queens Boulevard, is likely to consist of about 100 units, said co-developer Roger Lee. He said that he and his partners initially filed permits for a 26 story hotel building but decided to scale it back.

Revised permits have yet to be filed.

Lee said that he is in discussions with hotel operators to take the space upon completion.

Lee’s plans represent the continuation of the hotel boom that continues to take hold in Long Island City.

There have been 20 hotels built in Long Island City since 2008 and 26 are in the planning/construction phase, according to a report issued by the Long Island Partnership in August.

I agree with the person who said it will be for emergency housing (a shelter). There are too many hotels and not enough patrons. The Pan Am hotel, the Landmark Hotel and the Verve Hotel (luxury too) are now shelters the verve for battered women I believe. Build some real affordable housing. DeBlasio can’t figure out why there are so many homeless. Just keep building luxury condos and hotels maybe after he is out of ofice he can figure it out.
