BOUTIQUE HOTEL AND STEAKHOUSE COMING TO THE HEART OF HUNTERS POINT

Long Island City's Delano?

Long Island City’s Delano?

Word on the street is that there are plans to convert a long vacant building on 48th Avenue into a boutique hotel and steakhouse.  I have no idea who the developer and proprietor will be, so I have categorized this story as a rumor. I also have no idea on the timing, design, price points, etc.  In other words this is another mindless, vapid LICtalk story about a maybe.  But it’s also a welcome kernel coming during a short term LIC news vacuum. So I will let you the reader fantasize about, and embellish upon what this new project will be.  I for one, envision a massive presidential suite for assignations, a VIP room in the hotel lounge for me and Lenny Kravitz, and a beluga-stuffed, double-cut porterhouse generously topped with white truffles and washed down with a quart of Screaming Eagle.  Now that, is a great shabbos!

    I like the steakhouse part, but would be happy to keep all the tourists up near the bridge.

    I hope JLS Design is only the architect of record and not the designer. See their website to see what I mean.

    I spoke to the developer just today & the hotel is only a rumor. It will be rentals.

    It’s now been 2 years since the last message, and the building hasn’t changed a bit. No hotel, no rentals, no steakhouse! does anyone know what’s happening here?
