Flushing, Queens, NY, USA
The site lies in the new Flushing West District and will be developed as a luxury mixed use project comprising of a 5-star, 19 story hotel tower, two luxury 19 story residential apartment buildings and a high end retail podium. The hotel and residential components will be separate structures, bisected by a road but connected at their podiums by a pedestrian bridge. The site occupies the very center of the district and celebrates this location by creating a new plaza that is designed to integrate the building’s activities into the pedestrian life of Flushing while enhancing the upland connection experience between the newly developed waterfront promenade and Flushing’s Main Street.
The hotel will cater to out of town guests and the community at large with two full services restaurants, an executive club, health club/spa and a conference center with a 700 seat banquet hall available for private functions. On top of the podium, between the two residential towers, will be a private terrace garden and health club for the residents with open views oriented to the distant Manhattan skyline. The garden space will be landscaped with natural plantings, trees, walkways and a full service health club for residents.
Anticipated completion: 2024
