Commercial development is well across New York City. Ampiera plans a 16-story with 162-foot-tall hotel, in the industrial area just north of Queensbridge Houses in Long Island City.
The development will bring 139 hotel rooms between 38th and 40th avenues. With 80,387 square feet of commercial space, average rooms promise to be relatively spacious by hotel standards. The first and 16th floors will have restaurants, and 10 or 11 rooms will occupy each of the middle floors.
