The Arker Companies and the Northeast Brooklyn Housing Development Corporation have acquired, for $19 million, the site of the former Peninsula Hospital Center, located at 51-15 Beach Channel Drive in Edgemere, along the Rockaways in Queens. The developers plan to build a multi-building residential and commercial complex, according to DNAinfo. It’s unclear how large the project will be, but plans will be going through the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP), which indicates an individual rezoning is in the works. That means at least 30 percent of the residential units will have to be affordable. A four-story nursing home on site is currently occupied and will remain, but the four-story, 173-bed hospital building will be demolished. The hospital has been closed since 2012. The site – bound by Beach 50th Street, Rockaway Beach Boulevard, Beach 53rd Street, and Beach Channel Drive – is five blocks from the Beach 60th Street stop on the A train.
