Early in 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of Flushing Commons, a 1.8-million square-foot mixed-use development coming to downtown Flushing, located on the former municipal parking lot between 37th and 39th Avenues, and Union and 138th Streets. Last summer, the developers broke ground on phase 1, which includes 148 condominiums and 220,000 square feet of commercial space, and now The New York Times has an updated rendering, showing buildings with slightly more glass than before.
Phase one will finish in 2017, and by mid-2021, an additional 452 units, 280,000 square feet of commercial space and 77,000 square feet of community facilities will be complete. Condos will start at $650,000 and will cater to Chinese buyers. Perkins Eastman is designing, and F&T Group, The Rockefeller Group and AECOM Capital are developing.
