First Look at Nine-Story, 86-Key Holiday Inn Express, 4729 Third Avenue, Belmont

Back in December of 2015, YIMBY reported on applications for a nine-story, 86-key hotel at 4729 Third Avenue, in Belmont, located two blocks south of the Metro-North Railroad’s Fordham station. Now, Michael Kang’s Flushing-based architecture firm has revealed colored schematic drawings of the project. It can also be revealed that InterContinental Hotels Group will be the hotel operator and is planning a Holiday Inn Express. The structure, which will rise on a 6,229-square-foot triangular lot, will encompass 43,789 square feet. Guest amenities will include laundry facilities, a fitness center, a business center with meeting rooms, a breakfast area, luggage storage, and parking for four bikes. Syosset, N.Y.-based Neelam Chadha is the developer. The property is currently occupied by a small single-story warehouse, and demolition permits were filed in December.

Property owner Eleen Nihan has filed applications for a four-story, seven-unit mixed-use building at 2414 Hughes Avenue, in Belmont, located four blocks south of Fordham University’s Rose Hill campus. The structure will encompass 5,837 square feet and will include a 312-square-foot doctors office on the ground floor. The residential units should average 643 square feet apiece, which means rental apartments are in the works. Mohammad Badaly’s Mount Vernon, N.Y.-based Badaly Architects is the architect of record. The site’s existing two-story wood-framed house must first be demolished.
