Hotel on hold for now
From the Times Ledger:
Controversial plans to build a 12-story hotel on a narrow residential street in Fresh Meadows have stalled because the application for the building has been disapproved by the city Department of Buildings.
An official with the DOB said the application was disapproved on July 31 because it did not include the required number of parking spaces and it exceeded the maximum allowed floor area ratio for the lot.
Mayflowers Business Group, the owner of the property, has 12 months to revise and resubmit the application.
The plans include 102 hotel rooms and 33 apartment units. It also includes a one-story parking garage that would have 47 spots.
