Kew Gardens will have a towering new addition to its skyline come springtime.

The Queens Savoy Hotel and Residences, a 20-story mixed-use building being constructed at 123-32 82 Ave, should be ready for both tenants and hotel guests by April, according to signs outside of the construction site.

The $25 million structure, which was approved by the Buildings Department in 2008, will contain 83 hotel rooms and 43 apartment units as well as an undetermined amount of commercial space.

The contractors hired to construct the building, Sea Breeze General Construction, could not be reached for comment as of press time on Wednesday.

Community Board 9 District Manager Mary Ann Carey says that, despite the size and scope of the building being constructed, there has been little in the way of opposition or complaints from the community board or area residents.

“We haven’t really had any complaints recently. We had one person complain a while ago about construction blocking some parking spaces but that was it,” Carey said. “I’m sure it was reviewed very carefully by the Kew Gardens Civic Association and the residents who live on that block.”

Welcome to the discussion.
