If you’re looking to lodge in the lap of luxury, a fancy Flushing facility may soon bring the opportunity to stay in style, closer to home.

Plans to construct a high-end, 168-room Hyatt Place hotel in Flushing are in the works, according to Michael Meyer, president of F&T Group, the company creating the accommodations.

Constructed by F&T Group’s in-house builder, Top 8 Construction, the hotel will be located on 39th Avenue between Prince Street and College Point Boulevard, directly across from the Flushing Mall.

According to Meyer, the hotel will be just one piece of a large development project, called One Fulton Square, which could potentially include retail shops, office space, condominiums and underground parking.  The hotel will cover 110,000-square-feet of the One Fulton Square’s 303,000- square-feet. In addition, the building will also have a roof-top pool and bar.

This resort will be the first Hyatt Place in Queens and the newest upscale hotel in Flushing, according to Meyer.

While the opulent inn has yet to be named, Meyer claims it will be a “limited service” hotel, meaning it will not provide meeting spaces, ballrooms or full-service restaurants. Meyer insists, however, that the adjacent retail space will host a breadth of food and beverage options.

“The One Fulton Square project is another example of Flushing’s business vitality and local economic strength, along with the willingness of companies to invest in our community,” said Councilmember Peter Koo, who added that the endeavor will create approximately 940 jobs.  “I look forward to welcoming Hyatt, business professionals and the new retail outlets to the Flushing business community.”
