A 15-story, 338-key hotel is quietly rising above street level at 148-18 Archer Avenue, in downtown Jamaica, and a rendering of the project has been spotted on the construction fence. The latest building permits indicate the project will eventually encompass 202,314 square feet and rise 170 feet above street level to its roof. It will be home to a 224-key Courtyard Inn on the second through 10th floors and a 114-key Fairfield Inn and Suites on the 11th through 15th floors. Guest amenities will be located on the ground and cellar levels. An anonymous Flushing-based LLC is the developer and Raymond Chan’s Flushing-based firm is behind the architecture. Completion is slated for early 2019.

A rendering has been revealed of the six-story, 10-unit mixed-use building planned at 501 Myrtle Avenue, located on the corner of Ryerson Street in Clinton Hill. The image was spotted on-site by the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership. The latest building permits indicate the project, technically an expansion of the existing single-story building, will measure 13,088 square feet. It will include 1,882 square feet of commercial-retail space on the ground and cellar levels. The residential units above should average 690 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Amenities include storage for five bikes, a “recreation room” on the second floor, a rooftop terrace. The developer is operating as an anonymous LLC and Raymond Chan’s Flushing-based architectural firm is designing.
While the towers rising by the Hunters Point waterfront and around Queens Plaza and Court Square command attention of Long Island City real estate watchers, a number of smaller-scale, residential projects are steadily rising along the quiet, rowhouse blocks between the two development hotspots. In our April 2014 interview, Sam Charney, who is currently developing The Jackson a few blocks to the south, referred to the neighborhood as Hunters Point East. One of such projects is the six-story, 24-unit [email protected] Murray Park South at 11-30 45th Road. Its concrete shell and metal-framed bulkhead have reached their highest point, and the structure awaits curtain wall installation. The building is developed by the Century Development Group and designed by architect Raymond Chan, who is credited with a handful of projects scattered around the neighborhood. Triborough Construction Services Inc. is the general contractor.
Back in September of 2015, piling work was underway for the 20-story, 110-unit mixed-use building planned at 42-10 27th Street, in the Queens Plaza section of Long Island City. Now, foundation work is underway at the site, with the first rebar sprouting from the ground, The Court Square Blog reports. Per the latest permits with the Department of Buildings, the 20-story, 212-foot-tall project will encompass 137,812 square feet. It will feature 8,645 square feet of ground-floor retail and its residential units should average 741 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Amenities include private residential storage, storage for 55 bikes, a parking garage on the second floor, and recreational areas on the 19th and 20th floors. Lions Group NYC is the developer, while Flushing-based Raymond Chan is the architect. Completion is expected in 2017.
Developer Lions Group NYC plans to erect two high-rises on either side of Jackson Avenue. The site of Jackson West at 27-01 Jackson Avenue is cleared and would be ready for excavation as soon as the material currently stored at the lot is moved out of the way. Its sibling, Jackson East across the street at 26-32 Jackson, appears to still be in early proposal stages, with no work underway at the site and no permits filed.
