A rendering has been posted at the site of the nine-story, 48-key hotel planned at 145-07 95th Avenue in downtown Jamaica.

Late last month, YIMBY reported that piling work was underway at the site of HFZ Capital Group’s two-towered, 35- and 25-story, mixed-use project at 76 11th Avenue in southern Chelsea. The developer had been considering whether to construct a hotel or office space within the project’s commercial component; now it has been revealed that a five-star, 137-key Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas is planned. The hotel portion will be located in the 25-story eastern tower and will feature a spa. It will be the Bangkok-based hotel operator’s first location in the United States.
An 11-story building is nearing completion at 926 Sedgwick Avenue in the Highbridge section of the Bronx. At 117 feet high, the building stands as a minor but noticeable addition to the Harlem River skyline, perched upon the high river bank alongside both pre-war buildings and recent residential developments that flank the Major Deegan Expressway. Listed as a “transient hotel” in the building permits, the property will feature 64 units spread across 29,370 square feet of its 33,000-square-foot interior. Gerald J. Caliendo of Caliendo Architects is the applicant of record. Prasanna Venkatesha of Sita Ram LLC is listed as the owner.
Renderings have been revealed of the proposed 20-story, 238-key Hilton Hotel located behind the Main Station Hoboken Post Office building at 89 River Street, in Hoboken. The tower would rise on the parking lot behind the post office along Sinatra Drive, Jersey Digs reported. The hotel would feature a restaurant & bar, a 6,000-square-foot rooftop venue, a fitness center, and a 6,000-square-foot business center. A small retail component is included in the plans. The post office would also get a renovation and an underground garage if the hotel plans proceed. Philadelphia-based KMS Development Partners is the developer and Cooper Carry Associates is behind the architecture. The city’s Planning Board must approve the project.
