129-ft tall hotel proposed for LIC


From The Real Deal:

Sam Chang is proposing a 324-key hotel at 38-39 9th Street, just a block away from another Long Island City property the hotelier acquired last year.

Chang’s McSam Hotel Group filed permits for a 13-story hotel spanning 111,627 square feet at the site, according to documents filed with the city’s Department of Buildings on Monday.

If approved, the structure would be 129 feet tall.

324 rooms for a 12-story building. This is a flophouse.

In the beginning it will probably be something like the Moxy hotels, a stupid ass franchise that charges high end prices to lodge in a little ass room, but it's clear Chang knows what the real moneymaker is and is immediately taking advantage of the city's recent zoning exemptions for developing hotels in the area.

Thank you Mr. Chang for your current philanthropic contribution to de Faustio's real affordable housing program. Make that money.

When are you guys gonna get over it?
LIC is Manhattan east! Lotsa luck cramming onto those already overcrowded subway cars!
"Go East, young man"! Isn't that what Horace Greely said?

Van Bramer and Stamatiades run this area - two alumn of the bastion of learning the QBPL. Noted that Honest Joe Crowley also gets staff from that illustrious bastion of learning.

Well with stuff like this crammed down those blocks, you can be assured that Queensbridge will be thought of as as the good old days of model planning.

You are looking at a 3rd world hell that will hearken back to 5 Points ... and you can kiss off any BS about making luxury towers on Vernon. This will creep up and down the waterfront Hallets Cove to Annable Basin - coupled with the toxic brownfields and flooding from global warming - unlivable by the end of the current century.

But, then, none of this is important. The current crop of 'civic leaders' will have made their money and the area will vote solid Democrat until its gets bulldozed and that is all that matters with the 'Leadership' of Queens. And they have the balls to talk about Trump, a piker compared to them.

WTF does "5Pointz" have to do with this?
Take two Paxil and see me in the morning.
Is LIC filled with neurotic malcontents?
It is what it is! Get over it or move!
The clock AIN'T gonna get turned back!
FOR SURE! Keep it up and you'll need Thorezine to keep you placid.
