The Hilton Garden Inn will break ground this March. Servicing the JFK international airport community, the hotel will be adjacent to the Jamaica Transit Hub, one of the busiest railroad stations in North America. Conceptualized as part of a modern transit ecosystem, the HGI will be a social refresh for busy travelers. @gf55architects led by Partner-In-Charge David E. Gross AIA, created the project from architecture to interior design including guest rooms, public spaces and outdoor rooftop bar. The hotel is flanked by two other GF55 projects and the three buildings will spearhead a new urban skyline for Jamaica, Queens. The GF55 team includes Dimitra Papageorgiou, Carmen Perez and Jesse Mckeever.
