Last year, the Board of Standards and Appeals approved Fleet Financial head Yi “Richard” Xia’s request to build a non-residential structure on the site at 42-31 Union Street. 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.

Xia also has plans for the Ford car dealership site at 112-21 Northern Boulevard in Corona. He is said to be eyeing retail and a hotel there, as The Real Deal reported in December. [NY YIMBY]Mark Maurer
