If this proposal is a so called monster, what do they call the nearby Citigroup Tower?

Toyoko Inns to bring Japan to New York

Relaxnews
12 October 2010


Quote:
Successful all over Japan, the Toyoko Inn group is exporting its philosophy of cut-price, no-frills accommodation to New York.

The company operates 225 properties in Japan - a rapid expansion from a single hotel when the company was first set up in January 1986 - and specializes in providing cheap rooms for people travelling on business.

That concept is being extended overseas with the company announcing that it has secured a site in a 640-room tower in the New York borough of Queens.

The selling point will be its location - on the other side of the Hudson River directly opposite midtown - and access to public transport facilities. On top of that, it will charge slightly over $100 per night for a room. An average room in New York costs from $210 per night.

On the down side, the rooms will generally be smaller than 200 square feet (18.5 square meters) - when the average for a hotel in the Big Apple is more than 325 square feet (30 square meters) - and be equipped with little more than a bed, bathroom, desk and television. There will be free internet access and guests will also be able to try a simple, Japanese-style breakfast of rice balls, miso soup and boiled eggs, which is included in the room rate.

The Tokyo-based company engaged New York architect Gene Kaufman to design the hotel, its first foray into a market outside Japan.

The company makes no apologies for the services it provides, which have been a success at home.

"Unlike resort hotels, city hotels or hot spring inns, we do not offer extravagant facilities or services for holiday or vacation travellers," the company said in a statement. "Instead, we provide a comprehensive range of facilities and services that are designed to satisfy business travellers who are away from home.

"By streamlining our facilities and services, and by simply providing clean, comfortable and relaxing rooms, we are able to offer our guests reasonable rates," it said.

The Toyoko Inn group will be following in the footsteps of other Asia-based budget accommodation chains such as Tune Hotel. The Malaysian company opened its first property outside Asia in London in August.

The strength of the yen, combined with a range of new flight options available from the newly enlarged Haneda International Airport, means that New York is becoming a popular destination for Japanese tourists as well as businesspeople.

This plus future progress at the Gotham Center and we might actually see a real skyline for LIC.

Oh, you'll see a skyline there, though the choice of architect I'm sure will send many people running for cover.

Site as of September 2014: https://www.google.com/maps/@40.7460...QDFgisxSOA!2e0

If we zoom in or go near the site, there is a different realty sign posted, unrelated to the Japanese developer first mentioned in the OP.

the majority of urban architecture in japan looks like gene kaufman designed it so i can see what they gravitated to him. along with he is a cheap hire.

if they can keep this from turning into a love hotel it will be a major accomplishment. cool about the japanese breakfast included though.

Its alive!!! Back from the ether of the pipeline:

===================

Japan’s Toyoko Inn files plans for first US hotel in LIC

50-story tower on Jackson Avenue is slated to span 261K sf



Quote:
Japan’s Toyoko Inn is moving ahead with plans for a massive hotel in Long Island City — its first in the U.S. — after initially toying with the idea in 2010.

The hotel chain filed plans Tuesday to build a 50-story, 261,000-square-foot hotel at 24-09 Jackson Avenue, according to a permit application.

The proposed building will hold 1,260 hotel rooms. Hotel Architect DPC is the architect of record, according to the filing.

The development site is bound by 23rd street and 45th Avenue and is made up of six separate parcels of land. The company paid a total of $18 million for it in 2007. In 2010, the company announced it was planning to open a 640-room hotel in Queens, which has yet to come to fruition.

Toyoko Inn is an economy hotel chain, with more than 200 operations in Japan, Korea and Cambodia. It also has hotels scheduled to open in Germany and the Philippines. According to the company’s website, there are no other Toyoko Inns slated to open in the U.S.

Earlier this year, Flushing-based developer Chris Jiashu Xu filed plans for a 79-story residential tower in Long Island City.

Neither a representative for Toyoko Inn or Hotel Architect DCP were immediately available for comment.

Nice! Yet another 500 ft.+ tower in LIC.

Is there anyplace in the North America with such a concentration of new development in such a small geography? I don't know. Definitely nowhere in the U.S.

Its quite a sight in person. Not because of the block of developments, and I'm talking just tons of just whole blocks full of glass and rebar, but because of how many construction workers there are. Definitely has to be up there with the Hudson Yards in terms of how much activity there is. The whole area is a massive construction zone. Which is cool to see, and hear about, but not to drive through. I was stuck in an hour plus traffic jam trying to get out of LIC. Between the trucks, the constant stopping, the lanes being closed, it was hell, but it was a beautiful hell. I'd take a day in traffic hell for the future of the city. Around lunch time, the army of workers comes out, and you'd think LIC's residents were just guys wearing hard hats.

It really is AWESOME!! The transformation and how quickly its happening is just wild! If you're coming from the upper level of the Queensboro and take the ramp that goes to Thompson Ave... you would think you where in a different city all together.. tower after tower on either side now.

It just does not look like LIC anymore and there is still years of building and dozens of towers on the way.

Like I said...AWESOME!!

Hotel development plans will finish the year ahead of 2015


But there is an asterisk in the form of a 1,200-key project in LIC




Quote:
The number of hotel units planned so far in New York City this year is up 46 percent from the same period in 2015, according to an analysis of Department of Buildings permit applications for known hotel projects by The Real Deal.

Through October, developers planned 4,961 units in 34 known hotel projects of at least 10 units, up from 3,395 in 31 projects during the first 10 months of 2015.

Hotel development plans peaked in 2014, when developers applied to build more than 9,000 hotel rooms. Last year, plans were cut nearly in half, signaling an end to what had been four consecutive years of year-over-year increases in planned projects, as TRD previously reported.
But the slide has stabilized and the data show that hotel development has even picked up pace. The hotel units planned so far this year (4,961) is already more than 2015 by year’s end (4,630).

There is, however, a pretty big catch. More than a quarter of the hotel units planned in 2016 come from a single development, the Japanese hotel chain Toyoko Inn’s colossal Long Island City hotel project that will rise 50 stories and fit 1,260 hotel rooms. Additionally, a select number of projects will include units that are residential rentals or condos but which are not specified by building plans, making it difficult to put an exact number on the true hotel pipeline at any given time.


Apart from the volume of planned projects, the geography of hotel development changed over the last year as well. By this time in 2015, only one qualifying hotel plan was filed in the Bronx, a 98-key new construction building in Mott Haven. On the year to date so far, there were nine hotels planned for the Bronx totaling 654 rooms. In Queens, the number of individual hotel buildings planned is notably down from last year, with nine projects in 2016 versus 14 during the period in 2015, perhaps because Long Island City is finally starting to run out of industrial sites to build as-of-right hotels on.

Massive Toyoko Inn to put slight dent in Manhattan’s hotel dominance: Project coming to LIC will be only hotel with more than 1,000 rooms in the outer boroughs

Quote:
Manhattan is the undisputed king of the New York hotel market, with nearly all of the largest hotels dotting the streets of Midtown. But one project coming to Queens will disrupt this: the massive Toyoko Inn on its way to Long Island City.

The 50-story project will be located at 24-09 Jackson Avenue and contain 1,260 hotel rooms, which will make it the largest hotel in the outer boroughs and the ninth largest hotel in the city overall. It will be the only hotel outside of Manhattan in the top 10 by room count, according to a data analysis by The Real Deal.

Manhattan’s largest hotels are on a completely different scale than the largest hotels in the outer boroughs. The biggest in Manhattan—and the only hotel in New York with more than 2,000 rooms—is the 2,076-key Hilton at 1335 Sixth Avenue, followed closely by the 1,919-key Marriott Marquis at 1535 Broadway.

Outside of Manhattan, the biggest hotels are barely a quarter of this size. The largest hotel is the LaGuardia Airport Marriott in East Elmhurst, which has 450 rooms, followed by the Radisson at JFK Airport, which has 385 rooms. The smallest hotel to crack Manhattan’s top 20 list? The 702-key InterContinental New York Barclay at 111 East 48th Street.

Most of the top 20 outer borough hotels are in Queens, and the top four are all airport hotels. Brooklyn shows up for the first time with the newly-renovated 280-key Hotel Bossert in Brooklyn Heights, while Staten Island makes its first and only appearance at number 18, with the 198-key Hilton Garden Inn at 1100 South Avenue. The Bronx does not show up at all in the top 20.

Yeah, Long Island City continues to mature a bit. It still needs to become more of a destination, like Downtown Brooklyn.
