9-03 44th Road, New Dream Hotel (New Development Update)
Before the new year, QueensBeans.com reported on the 99-year ground lease of 9-03 44th Road to Barone Management to develop a new hotel in Long Island City. Now YIMBY has revealed the details of those plans with renderings for what is now expected to be a 199 room 12 story hotel. YIMBY Provided rendering that Barone Management is building a Dream Hotel on LIC, and keeping the shell of the current building as part of the new project.
The Dream Hotel is set to total 84,600 square feet, designed by Stephen B. Jacobs and had to go through several permit fillings due to changes in building codes. The new building is to keep the old industrial feel and character of the existing building and Long Island City’s industrial roots and history, while bringing in modern looks to match the city’s rise upward into the skyline.
The site is right near the existing Wyndham Garden Hotel and has easy access to subway minutes away from Manhattan. QueensBeans.com will follow the progress and update periodically.
