Eight-story Holiday Inn Planned For Woodside

May 21, 2015 By Jackie Strawbridge

The western Queens hotel boom has not neglected Woodside, with an eight-story, 135-room Holiday Inn Express planned to go up on Queens Boulevard.

The hotel is going to be located at 64-06 Queens Boulevard and is being developed by Century Development Group, a Flushing-based company.

The project will include a restaurant, recreation room and office spaces, according to city filings. There will be meeting rooms as well as 39 parking spaces and 21 bicycle parking spots.

While most of the 135 rooms are standard guest rooms, some will be booked for extended stays only, no less than one month.

On its website, Century Development Group heralds the hotel’s proximity to LaGuardia Airport and Manhattan, as well as Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, the Queens Museum and Citi Field.

Raymond Chan Architect of Flushing is designing the building, according to records. Century Development Group estimates that the hotel will be complete in 2018.

The Holiday Inn Express will join a handful of hotels and motels serving LaGuardia that are sprinkled along Queens Boulevard.

The site, which sold for $5 million earlier this year, was previously the home of Auto Barn.

Yes by the hour has a catch.

Graveyards do not really make for great catchment areas though, so one offsets the other.
