Small Hotel For Dutch Kills

By Liz Goff
The owners of a property at 38-23 28th Street in Dutch Kills filed plans last week for a five-story hotel at the site, between 38th and 39t Avenues.

The building would replace a small, two-story wood frame house with a garage, located within walking distance to the 39th /BeeBee Avenue N and Q elevated subway lines.

Plans call for residential and community use space, on a parcel zoned for low-density development of no more than three floors.

If plans for a five-story hotel are approved, the building would feature 1,400-sqyare-feet of medical offices on the ground floor and 9,874-square-feet of residential space.

Developers would build 35 hotel rooms into the residential portion, making each space approximately 280-square-feet.

The development would also feature two parking spaces, although no parking spaces are required in new developments in the area.

Real estate experts said the hotel would struggle for customers in the hotel-crowded Dutch Kills neighborhood. If the hotel is not successful in the highly competitive local market, it could eventually be converted into a homeless shelter, experts said.
