How many homeless could fit inside THIS?
From the Queens Gazette:
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.
