Permits have been filed for an 11-story mixed-use building at 69-65 Yellowstone Boulevard, in Forest Hills, Queens. The site is just three blocks away from the Forest Hills 71st Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the E, F, M, and R trains, which offer a twenty-minute commute into Manhattan. Flushing Meadows Corona Park is another few blocks past the subway, and is home to the Queens Museum, Zoo and Botanical Garden. Slate Property Group will be responsible for development.
The 120-foot tall structure will yield 133,900 square feet, with 113,400 square feet dedicated to residential use, and 20,500 square feet for commercial use. 168 living units will be created, averaging 675 square feet apiece, indicating rentals.
Tenants will have access to an outdoor recreation area, fitness center, and lounge on the third floor. There will be two retail spaces on the first floor and a parking lot with capacity for 189 vehicles on the second floor. The project would replace a grocery store, but this plan does suggest a replacement will come.
Aufgang Architects will be responsible for the design.
An estimated completion date is not known, and demolition permits were filed in June of this year.
