A subsidiary of GFI Capital Resources Group scooped up a 330-key hotel near John F. Kennedy Airport for $60 million, documents filed with the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange show.

GFI Real Estate Limited Purchased A Crowne Plaza Hotel at 138-10 135th Avenue in the Jamaica neighborhood of Queens, according to the TASE announcement. The 330-key hotel will be managed by Crescent Hotels and Resorts.

The hotel brought in $5.4 million last year, TASE documents show, and GFI hopes to bring the property’s net operating income up to $5.8 million. Representatives of the firm were unavailable for comment Tuesday.

ERG JFK Hotel, an LLC that appears to be run by the Elliot Management Corp., purchased the hotel in 2012 for $16.5 million, according to property records. The nine-story hotel underwent a major renovation and reopened in 2014.

GFI, headed by Allen Gross, also owns the Ace Hotel and purchased the Carlton Hotel in NoMad for $162 million in 2015. The firm is also behind the redevelopment of Temple Court at 5 Beekman Street into a hotel and 68-unit condo tower.
