New 10-story hotel heads to Long Island City

A 74-room hotel is slated to rise in Long Island City, one of many hospitality developments that have cropped up in the area as of late.

The Department of Buildings issued a new building permit for a 10-story hotel to be built at 40-47 22nd Street, near 44th Avenue. A New Jersey hotel owner and operator appears to be behind the venture, according to city records.

The lot was bought in June of 2013 by an entity called only 22 Street Sai Hotel LLC, which also owns the Brunwick Hotel in New Brunswick, N.J. But that same month the entity flipped the spot to another company, called merely Ratan Realty Three LLC, for $4.2 million, according to city records. Ratan is based at a Howard Johnson at 1300 Tonnelle Avenue in North Bergen, New Jersey.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether the new location would be part of the Howard Johnson hotel chain.

The sign on the construction fence said the hotel, designed by Michael Kang Architect, is slated for completion by the summer of 2015, according to Brownstoner.

Several hoteliers have come to Long Island City recently, including the 54-room expansion of the Ravel Hotel at 8-08 Queens Plaza South, slated for completion in May.  The Ravel, known for its rooftop bar and views of Manhattan, opened in 2007. [Brownstoner] — Angela Hunt
