The owner of a six-story office building in Jamaica plans to convert the property into a 110-key hotel.
Lakewood, N.J.-based Stefan Solakiewicz plans to turn the 55,000-square-foot building at 92-32 Union Hall Street into a hotel with retail on the ground floor and 22 rooms on each of the second through sixth floors, according to an application filed with the Department of Buildings Friday.
Solakiewicz could not be immediately reached for comment. He bought the building back in 2013 for $1.1 million, snapping it up out of foreclosure. The previous owner, Faizulmunir Kazi, had paid $2.6 million to buy the property back in 2008.
Jamaica, which serves as a hub between John F. Kennedy International Airport and Manhattan, has been a hotspot for hotel development. The largest hotel project in the works is a 28-story, 240-room hotel that Able Management is developing near the Long Island Rail Road station.
