Permits have been filed for an eight-story residential building at 83-05 116th Street, in Kew Gardens, Queens. The site is just under a mile away from the Union Turnpike-Kew Gardens Subway Station, serviced by the E and F trains. The 121st Street Subway Station is also three-quarters of a mile away, serviced by the J and Z trains. The largely residential neighborhood is enriched by its proximity to Forest Park, spanning over 538 acres, 165 acres of which is occupied by trees and trails.
Starlink Condominiums will be responsible for the development. The company purchased the site in April of this year for $1.8 million.
The 85-foot tall structure will yield 126,000 square feet of space, with 81,620 square feet dedicated to residential use. The 92 apartments created will average 887 square feet apiece, indicating rentals. Tenants will have access to a lobby connecting them to an indoor recreation space, 70 parking spaces, and storage capacity for 48 bicycles. The site will be crowned with a rooftop terrace.
SM Tam Architects will be responsible for the design.
Demolition permits have not been filed, and an estimated completion date has not been announced.
