Architecture firm GF55 Partners has released a new rendering of the Hilton Garden Inn, a hotel that will be built at 93-43 Sutphin Blvd. in Jamaica.

The hotel will be 125,000 square feet and 27 stories tall, and located right across the street from the AirTrain to JFK Airport. It will contain 225 guest rooms, as well as a restaurant, bars on the ground floor and roof, a gym, a pool and an outdoor terrace.

According to the firm, the goal in designing this structure was to set an example for future architecture in the area. The rectangular main tower floats above a glass 40-foot base that contains the lobby, bar, pool and public spaces. The fourth floor contains a green roof terrace.

David E. Gross AIA, the partner in charge for the architectural firm, said, “The special zoning requirement of this district mandates a strong base. This in turn gave us the opportunity to organize all the public spaces within this and float the hotel floors above it. The rooftop bar will be a special exciting gathering space for this area.”

The project will cost approximately $54 million and is scheduled to break ground in early 2016.
