Permits have been filed for a five-story residential building at 5-22 49th Avenue in Long Island City, Queens. Located between Vernon Boulevard and 5th Street, the lot is one block from the Vernon Boulevard-Jackson Avenue subway station, serviced by the 7 train. Amir Zicherman of Oren & Ivy LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
The proposed 50-foot-tall development will yield 9,984 square feet designated for residential space. The building will have 15 residences, most likely rentals based on the average unit scope of 665 square feet. The concrete-based structure will also have a 30-foot-long rear yard and six enclosed parking spaces.
Ralph Kowalczyk of Issac & Stern Architects is listed as the architect of record.
Demolition permits were filed in October 2020 for a one-story garage on the property. An estimated completion date has not been announced.
