The site of a future hotel in Elmhurst is on sale for $8.5 million.

A development site at 78-06 Queens Blvd. in Elmhurst, which has approved plans for a mixed-use hotel building, is on the market for $8.5 million.

The site holds approximately 49,335 buildable square feet and sits on a 80-foot by 123-foot irregular lot. The site has approved plans for a mixed-use hotel building to include 94 hotel rooms, 21 residential units, commercial space, and on-site parking.

The property is located near the M and R subway lines at the Grand Avenue-Newtown station and several bus lines. It is also located within 6 miles of Manhattan and is in close proximity to the Long Island Expressway, Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, Queens Place and Queens Center mall.

The lot sits right next to the Pan American homeless shelter, an emergency family homeless shelter whose owners have repeatedly applied to convert it into a permanent homeless shelter. City Comptroller Scott Stringer has denied the application three times, noting that health and safety concerns, such as fire code violations and lack of kitchen facilities in the units, must be addressed.

Community residents and politicians such as Senator Tony Avella and Councilwoman Grace Meng have vehemently opposed the shelter, arguing that Samaritan Village Inc., which operates the shelter, gave no prior notice of its opening to residents and elected officials.
