TCX Development is planning a 15-story, 72-key hotel at 92-18 150th Street, located at the corner of Archer Avenue in downtown Jamaica, strategically located two blocks from the Jamaica Center-Parsons/Archer Station on the E/J/Z trains and five blocks from the Jamaica hub station on the Long Island Rail Road. The project, which does not currently have new building applications with the city’s Department of Buildings, should measure 35,000 square feet, with hotel rooms averaging 250 square feet apiece, Commercial Observer reports. It will feature a 2,000-square-foot rooftop bar and a 1,500-square-foot restaurant. ARC Architecture + Design Studio is responsible for the design. The developer has already demolished the site’s single-story predecessor. TCX acquired the site for $1.7 million in August of 2015.

Guest amenities include storage for seven bikes, a fitness center, a conference room, and a bar/lounge. Nassim Seliktar is the property owner, while Gene Kaufman Architect is behind the design. Completion is expected within the next few months.

Renovated 12-Story, 148-Key Crowne Plaza Hotel Opens at 50 Kenny Place, Saddle Brook, New Jersey

Last summer, Houston-based Unique Hotel Management Group acquired the shuttered 12-story hotel at 50 Kenny Place, in Saddle Brook, New Jersey (in Bergen County). Now, after six years of sitting empty, the hotel has finally reopened as a Crowne Plaza, according to NorthJersey.com. The renovated hotel has 148 rooms, a redesigned lobby, meeting and event rooms, a business center, and a restaurant, dubbed SKY, located on the top floor. The distinctly cylindrical tower was built in 1971 as a Holiday Inn, but closed in 2010 following the financial crisis, prior to being acquired by Unique for $10.7 million.

The tower will measure roughly 213,300 square feet and will feature 3,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. DSM Design Group is designing the project. Groundbreaking is expected later this year, and opening is slated for 2019. Two low-slung commercial buildings – at 448-452 Eleventh Avenue – must first be demolished.
