ARE DEVELOPERS ALREADY BAILING OUT OF JAMAICA: OBSERVATION FROM A RESIDENT IN THE KNOW

Well, well, well, did not take too long for all the hype development to cool off in ghetto Jamaica (The Crossing & the old Immaculate Mary Hospital are still a go). Hey but in the meantime, we are becoming known as HOMELESS SHELTER VILLAGE.

Well, it looks like that nice boutique hotel with the roof top bar ain’t happening anymore either (https://cleanupjamaicaqueens.wordpress.com/2016/04/20/look-out-15-story-hotel-with-rooftop-bar-planned-for-downtown-jamaica-at-archer-150th/), even though they demoed the property and dug the hole for the foundation. Also, the 10 story luxury building with a doorman property on Archer ave is for sale again too (http://arielpa.nyc/listing/92-18-150th-street).

Hhhmm, let’s see, the Jamaica Tower on Archer ain’t happening anymore the developer is selling the land (https://cleanupjamaicaqueens.wordpress.com/2017/01/15/another-big-jamaica-development-not-happening-did-they-jump-the-gun-on-the-revitalization-of-jamaica-way-too-soon/), 168th st development got nixed (supposedly they have a new developer and project they are announcing soon, and now these aren’t happening anymore either (https://cleanupjamaicaqueens.wordpress.com/2016/03/01/plans-for-big-50-million-department-storeretail-space-terminated-guess-jamaica-is-not-so-hot-you-think/). Just a coincidence, or are developers bailing out to find new potential sucker for the hype. Who knows. It’s just an observation. Maybe we’ll get something bigger and better. Time will tell.

  1. And so begins the new bad days of social decay and urban blight. This time Queens will be burning.

    These developers and appointed city planners are scum. If they wanted “vibrancy” to come to an area, they should do it for the people already residing there instead of trying to market to yuppie and hipshit clientele.
