9-03 44th Road: 222-key LIC Hotel by Barone Management
A few weeks ago Queens Beans was on location at the Manhattan Cabinetry off of Vernon Boulevard to take some photos of the site that is about to become a new 222-room hotel.
The site was signed over to a 99-year lease by the Koullias family, owners of the site and the business inside the current building.

The new 13-story hotel is in the works in Hunter’s Point area of LIC compliments of Barone Management. Applications were filed to establish the 89,676 square foot tower at 9-03 44th Road. The building site will have nice city views as it does face the river (see photos). The second floor is set to hold 59 cars while the third floor will include an eatery and a pool. The 99-year lease was signed in July by Barone for the property for $46,880 as shown by property records. The site is across from an existing Wyndham Garden and the new hotel to come is a continuation of the rapid increase in Hotel development in Long Island City and across the borough of Queens.
