Today YIMBY has the first rendering for New Empire Corporation’s plans to construct a new condominium project at 37-14 34th Street, in Long Island City, Queens. The site is just a block and a half away from the 36th street station, serviced by the E, M, and R trains. Also nearby is the Queens Museum of the Moving Image.
The project, named LIC COMMONS, will be two separate seven-story buildings connected by a single story structure with a recreational rooftop area. The structure will yield 78,100 square feet, with 21,000 square feet dedicated to commercial use on the ground floor, and the remaining 57,100 square feet dedicated for residential use.
Specifics haven’t been finalized yet, but at this point, the project expects roughly 80 dwelling units, with an average size of at least 714 square feet apiece. New Empire Real Estate Development is the official developer.
Completion is expected by late 2019.
