Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 144-74 Northern Boulevard, in Flushing, Queens. Seven blocks away is the Murray Hill Train Station, serviced by the Port Washington line on the Long Island Railroad. Thirteen blocks away is the Main Street Subway Station, end of the line in Queens for 7 trains, an anchor point for the commercial area. Sky View Northern Companies will be responsible for the development.
The project will replace a drive-thru Burger King with four retail spaces, and an unspecified community facility. The 74-foot tall structure will yield 160,160 square feet of space, with 69,140 square feet dedicated to residential use, 19,980 square feet for commercial use, and 16,500 square feet dedicated to community facility use.
100 apartments will be created, averaging 691 square feet apiece, indicating rentals. Tenants will have access to a lobby with mailroom, recreational space on the second floor, and a rooftop terrace. Underground parking will be built, with capacity for a whopping 172 vehicles.
Ismael Leyva Architects will be responsible for the design.
New building permits had been filed in 2015 under a different management and design team. It was to be developed by Oz Levi and designed by Anthony Morali Architects. The building proposed was to be 12 stories and 149 feet tall, creating 120 units averaging 470 square feet apiece.
Demolition permits were filed for the existing structure in 2015. The estimated completion date has not been announced.
