    42-31 Union Street in Queens

    Queens-based development firm Fleet Financial Group has released a rendering for its $100 million hotel-and-medical-facility project in Flushing known as the Eastern Mirage.

The hotel component is set to hold 180 rooms, with North Queens Medical Center occupying the ground-floor section. The developer’s deal with the community board calls for a 300-spot parking garage open to the public on the site. [more]
