Construction is well underway on a four-building, 1.2-million-square-foot mixed-use development, dubbed Tangram, in downtown Flushing. The project is located on much of the block bound by College Point Boulevard, Prince Street, and 37th and 39th avenues. Work appears to be above street level on the 13-story, 192-unit residential building at 133-27 39th Avenue. The condominium residential units in this building should average 987 square feet, per the latest building permits. Also under construction is a four-level, 377-car underground parking garage.
Other buildings that aren’t yet under construction, but have been filed with the Buildings Department, include a 13-story, 170-unit mixed-use building at 37-09 College Point Boulevard. The apartments here, also condominiums, should average 836 square feet. There will also be a 14-story, 94,268-square-foot office building at 37-12 Prince Street. Retail will be located on the ground floor, followed by 6,549 square feet of community facility space on the second floor, and offices on the third through 13th floors.
The fourth building will front 37th Avenue, but hasn’t been filed at this time. A hotel is planned, Commercial Observer reported, so the fourth building should contain this component. Tangram will include 225,000 square feet of commercial-retail, including a 34,000-square-foot movie theater. The retail portion will accommodate roughly 30 shops and a 24,000-square-foot food hall.
F&T Group and SCG America are the developers. Margulies Hoelzli Architecture is the architect. The retail areas are expected to open in 2018, while the full build-out is expected to wrap up in 2020.
