Phipps Houses, a major developer in the affordable housing market, has filed plans for a new, three-building development in Forest Hills, Queens. When complete, the project will introduce 298 new apartments, community facilities, and a four-story parking garage to the neighborhood.
Located at 62-27 108th Street, the development will replace one of four co-op buildings formerly owned by the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA).
One of the mixed-use buildings will rise 13 stories tall and contain 115 residential units, with a total build area of about 132,000 square feet. The second will comprise 200,000 square feet and rise to 17 stories, with an additional 183 units. Both will contain unspecified community facilities.
The third building will comprise a four-story parking garage, but permits filed do not specify how many spaces or vehicles the enclosure is designed to contain.
Curtis + Ginsberg Architects, an award-winning, local firm, will oversee design of all three buildings.
