Downtown Jamaica is turning into the borough’s epicenter of hotels.
Kaushik Patel, a Queens-based developer, filed an application last week with the Department of Buildings to build a new massive complex consisting of three adjacent hotels, joining a long list of lodging projects planned for the area.
The new complex, at the intersection of 146th Street, Sutphin Boulevard and 101st Avenue will bring nearly 400 rooms to the area, as first reported by The Real Deal.
One of the hotels, at 97-46 146th St., will consist of 108 rooms. Another, at 97-34 Sutphin Blvd., will feature 148 rooms, and the third one, at 145-01 101st Ave., will have 142 rooms, according to the DOB's website. All three buildings are slated to be 9-stories high and will offer 51 parking spaces.
Patel said that three different hotel chains will operate the complex — Wyndham Garden, Country Inns & Suites and La Quinta Inns & Suites.
