A car rental office on a bustling stretch of Northern Boulevard in Jackson Heights may give way to an eight-story office building. YIMBY has the first look at the project, which has to make its way through the rezoning process before it can become a reality.
Elmhurst-based Advanced Properties has filed applications for a four-story, 7,760-square-foot medical office building at 37-12 92nd Street, on the southern side of Jackson Heights. The project will contain 6,000 square feet of medical space for doctors’ offices across the cellar through fourth floors. There will also be two off-street parking spaces. Frank Petruso’s Great Neck, N.Y.-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 30-foot-wide, 3,000-square-foot lot is currently occupied by a two-story house. Demolition permits were filed in February. The 90th Street-Elmhurst Avenue stop on the 7 train is two blocks away.
A proposal to add four stories of residential space to a single-story commercial building in Queens is still on hold. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission, for the second time, declined to approve the plan for 35-64 85th Street.
Earlier this week, YIMBY brought you news of the five-story, 65,585-square-foot public school – P.S. 398-Q – planned at 69-01 34th Avenue, in western Jackson Heights. Now, new details and renderings have been revealed by DNAinf0. P.S. 398-Q will be an elementary school for 476 students in the pre-K through fifth grade range. In addition to classrooms, a gymnasium, a cafeteria, administrative offices, and a library, the building will include an enclosed 4,000-square-foot rooftop playground, a music room, art rooms, and a guidance office. The school is expected to open in September of 2019. Purcell Architects is behind the design. The New York City School Construction Authority (SCA) acquired the property for $6.3 million last year.
Back in late 2014, Woodside-based developer Nakorn Realty acquired, for roughly $5 million, the single-story office property at 69-01 34th Avenue, in western Jackson Heights, located four blocks from the 65th Street stop on the M/R trains. The developer planned to build a residential building with ground-floor commercial space, but now the New York City School Construction Authority (SCA) has filed for a five-story, 65,585-square-foot public school at the site. The school, which will be called P.S. 398-Q, will have a cafeteria on the ground floor, a gymnasium on the fourth floor, and a rooftop playground on the fifth floor. Classrooms and administrative offices will fill the remainder of the building. Robert Purcell’s Midtown South-based Purcell Architects is the architect of record. Demolition permits were filed in January to raze the site’s old office building, which most recently served as a regional office for White Castle.
