Massive Hotel Planned For Jackson Avenue

By Liz Goff
Japanese hotelier Toyoko Inn Co. has filed an application to develop a massive 59-story hotel within walking distance of the Queens Plaza transportation hub in Long Island City.

Plans indicate the hotel at 24-09 Jackson Avenue, between 45th Avenue and 23rd Street, will rise 514-feet and will feature 260,857-square-feet of commercial space, with a five-car garage and lobby located on the ground floor.

The project will feature 1,260 hotel rooms – 54 rooms on the second-through-eighth floors and 21 to 22 rooms on each of the remaining floors.

Toyoko paid $18.2 million for six lots on Jackson Avenue in 2007, and $8.2 million for two lots next door in 2014. The project will fill a series of long-vacant lots next to the Court Square G, 7, E and M subway stations, located just across the street from two residential towers being developed at the former 5 Points warehouse site.
