HOTEL/APARTMENT COMBO IN JAMAICA – SURE NOTHING CAN GO WRONG WITH THAT TYPE OF CRAP

In a crap section of Jamaica, 143 St & Liberty, permits have been filed by Developer Arvinder Singh for a Jamaica first, a combo hotel/apartment. 76 hotel rooms  on the first four floor, with 12 apartments above it. Considering the crappy area where there is not much, I can just imagine how this will turn out. If you notice below, they talk about how some of the hotel rooms will be “extended stay” (sounds like code for “homeless”.  I mean who in their right mind would want to live above a hotel and more than likely there will not be separate entrance for the hotel portion and the apartments. Ghetto people I guess.

Expect third world ghetto, unless I am wrong, but I doubt it.  Hotel (with extended stays), apartments above it and developer Arvinder Singh, yep THIRD WORLD GHETTO. Watch the construction of it, I am sure it will be hit with several violations before it is even finished.

Great, not only is Jamaica still producing crap, but now it is combing crap together to create SUPER CRAP.super crap

From New York YIMBY:

Permits Filed: Hotel and Apartments at 143-18 Liberty Avenue, Jamaica

Jamaica’s development boom is moving south of the Long Island Rail Road yards and into the relatively forgotten area near the Van Wyck Expressway. Yesterday, YIMBY noticed plans for an unusual hotel-residential project at 143-18 Liberty Avenue, along an industrial and highway-like stretch of eastern Queens.

Developer Arvinder Singh has filed applications to erect a six-story, mixed-use building on the site of a car dealership, at the corner of Pinegrove Street. The project will have 76 hotel rooms on the first four floors, topped by 12 apartments. There will be 16,950 square feet of commercial space and 8,400 square feet of residential.

We expect this building will be a hotel with extended stay rooms, which are often classified as residential on DOB filings. The owners probably hope to draw tourists driving back from JFK on the Van Wyck, or travelers getting off the AirTrain at Jamaica station several blocks away.

The subterranean levels will host an exercise room, meeting rooms, lounge, and a breakfast area. Travelers will be able to park in a nine-space surface lot.

Manish Savani Architect, based on Hillside Avenue in Jamaica, applied for the permits.

  1. Liberty Ave and 143rd? Anything within a few blocks of the LIRR/AirTrain cluster is definitely a good bet, but Liberty is not.
    This area is zoned industrial, and will remain that way: I nice walk west from the southern border of the York College campus will take you past auto body shops and metal salvage, an MTA busyard, but there is also some big industry: a concrete plant and the Queensboro Dairy (home of superior Cream-O-Land products!) are there.
    These are not going to go away, like we hope the 50+ ‘beauty products’ shops everywhere on Jamaica/Hillside eventually will.
    Everything about the location smells ‘off’: the location, and yes, the ‘developer’.
    Look up ‘Singh’ in the NYC contractor complaint/adjudication database and you’ll know what I’m referring to here.
