Jamaica-based Pride Hospitality Group has filed applications for an 18-story, 283-unit hotel building at 149-03 Archer Avenue, in downtown Jamaica, located three blocks from the Jamaica LIRR station, JFK AirTrain and the E, J and Z subways at Sutphin Boulevard.

The industrial no man’s land between Long Island City and Astoria has suddenly become a hotbed of hotel development, and now we can add another project to the list. Developer Talwinder Parmar wants to erect a 13-story hotel at 37-35 21st Street, between 37th and 38th Avenues.
Last month, YIMBY brought you news of Tribeca Associates’ planned 26-story, 228-key hotel at 143 Fulton Street/26 Ann Street, in the Financial District, and now crews are prepping the existing three-story building for demolition, courtesy of a YIMBY reader. Retail space will be located on the first three floors in the 88,447 square-foot building, and SLCE Architects is the architect of record. The new building’s design has not yet been revealed.
In February of 2014, YIMBY reported on filings for a 29-story, 249-key hotel at 6 Water Street, in the Financial District, and later that year, revealed an on-site rendering of the project, which is being designed by Gene Kaufman. Courtesy of a YIMBY reader, photos confirm the building is finally rising, and it’s now one floor above street level. Rhode Island-based Magna Hospitality Group is developing, after acquiring the site from prolific hotel builder Sam Chang last year for $44.3 million. Signage indicates an anticipated completion date of this coming winter, though that would seem unlikely.
In April, YIMBY revealed the Pestana Hotel planned for 338 West 39th Street, the latest commercial venture from prolific hotelier Sam Chang. Now new building applications have been filed to erect a 25-story hotel on the lot between Eighth and Ninth Avenues.
