Five-Story Apartment Complex Planned to go up by Quality Inn Hotel

43-36 53rd Street (green house) Google

Aug. 6, 2018 Staff Report

Permits have been filed for the construction of a 5-story, 14-unit apartment building to go up near the Quality Inn hotel in Woodside.

The development is slated to be built at 43-36 53rd St., where a single-family house is currently located, according to Dept. of Buildings filings.

The owner of the site, Jan How Kang, has yet to file for demolition permits. The house was bought in May 2014 for $1.15 million, city records show.

The development will go up across the street from the Quality Inn, located at 53-05 Queens Blvd. The Quality Inn has been used to shelter the homeless since 2016.

hey media, nobody cares about the russia story

if i lived there id sneak into the quality inn breakfast buffet at least once a week! fire up dat pancake machine!!

Now they admit collusion (conspiracy)

Everybody cares about the Russian story, only gullible and easily conned traitors to America would turn a blind eye.


Is the property on the corner? If not, how are they permitted to go 5 stories high?
I hope some investigating reporting on the influx of hotels in our area is done. These businesses do nothing for our quality of life. Hotel owners may be in it solely for the tax dollars they get from housing the homeless. Follow the money.


No. It is not on the corner. Great Bear Auto shop is on the corner. The yellow house in the picture is the address mentioned in the article to demolished.


They paid 1.15 million for what looks like a run down single family home in a not so great location. It was probably already zoned to go much bigger given that sale price.


It’s an apartment building (rentals), not a hotel.

There has been an influx in hotel construction because certain areas aren’t zoned for residential so they can’t building housing there.

Op-ed: An urgent call for revising NY’s criminal justice reforms to protect public safety

Apr. 11, 2024 By Council Member Robert Holden

In 2019, the State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo embarked on a controversial overhaul of New York’s criminal justice system by enacting several laws, including cashless bail and sweeping changes to discovery laws. Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
