Cobblestones Add Charm To Dutch Kills Hotel

By Liz Goff
A 10-story hotel is rising above a decades-old cobblestone street in Dutch Kills, less than a block away from a Quality Inn, and just steps from a controversial women’s homeless shelter.

The hotel at 29-12 40th Avenue will stand 50-feet–wide and 105-feet-tall on a total of 52,917-square feet, and will feature 26,727-square-feet of commercial space and a rear yard measuring 30-feeet.

The hotel will boast 75 rooms in a neighborhood where more than a dozen hotels have risen in recent years, and where more than ten hotels are under construction.

The hotel is located just two blocks from the elevated N and Q subway lines, close to Northern Boulevard and within walking distance to the Queens Plaza transportation hub – making it just minutes from Manhattan and the Queensborough Bridge.

The Dutch Kills neighborhood is home to the Kaufman Astoria Studios, the Museum of the Moving Image, Queens Council On The Arts and a large beer garden.

The 45,000-square-foot Brooklyn Grange rooftop farm is located within walking distance at 37-18 Northern Boulevard, in a building formerly occupied b by the Standard Motors Auto Parts manufacturing plant. The farm is open to the public

The site formerly housed a pair of two-story tow homes that were demolished in 2008, when the parcel was first put up for sale.

The building is also located across the street from the St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church and approximately two blocks from the Newcomer’s High School.
