Earlier this year, an alert YIMBY reader spotted a commercial building being transformed into a residential project in Long Island City. Today, we have a look at the planned final product.
The Hakimian Organization, which is converting the two-story office building at 33-01 38th Avenue into a six-story, 94-unit residence, has revealed a rendering of their project. When complete, the gray and brick building will encompass 65,916 square feet of residential space, per Department of Buildings filings. That works out to about 700 square feet per unit.
There will be 10 apartments on the first floor, plus a unit split between the first floor and a mezzanine level. Floors two through five will have 19 apartments each and the sixth floor will have five apartments. There will be outdoor terraces on floors two and six and the roof, while the basement also has space for amenities including a lounge, game room and exercise room.
The building is located on the northern edge of Long Island City in Dutch Kills. It is about a block from the M/R station at 36 Street and Northern Boulevard and not far from the N/Q station at 39th Avenue and 31st Street.
The Hakimian Organization purchased the property for $14 million in 2014. GreenbergFarrow is the architect.
Hakimian states online that the building is set to be complete next year.
