We last checked in on 21-16 44th Drive back in May when we saw that a rendering had appeared on site.1 When we stopped by last week, we noted that excavation is complete on site, as seen in the photo below. The project is an eight story-mixed used hotel build, with 19,989 square feet of commercial space and 19,799 square feet of residential space for a FAR of 3.98.
The site has been dormant until recently, when we saw that a rendering had appeared on site, as seen in the photo below. The entire project, which is now listed as 21-18 44th Drive, was approved on April 12, 2018, so expect construction to begin soon. The occupancy classification on the permit calls for “HOTELS, DORMITORIES” and there will be 29 dwelling units.2 The permit still has the same contact information as one previously filed associating the project with Amsterdam Hospitality.34
