Update: Four more buildings were filed on the 28th and 29th.
Elmhurst-based Song Lin has filed applications for ten four-story, three-unit residential buildings at 85-08 – 85-20 57th Avenue and 84-71 – 84-77 57th Road, in Elmhurst, five blocks from the Woodhaven Boulevard stop on the M and R trains. The buildings, which will vary in size, will be built on a block-thru lot at the current site of the New York Bethzatha Church. Six of them will have 3,995 square feet of residential space each, which means their units will average 1,332 square feet apiece. Two other buildings will measure 3,979 square feet, one will have 4,698 square feet and the final building will total 6,237 square feet. The units in the largest building would average 2,079 square feet, so condominiums are more than likely in the works. Chang Hwa Tan’s Flushing-based Tan Architect is the architect of record. Demolition permits were filed to remove the church in November.
