Development plans for the transit-oriented lot comprise an 11-story mixed-use building yielding 112,000 square feet and holding 102 rental units. In addition to some affordable housing units, 30-02 Newtown Avenue will have 8,400 square feet of retail, a 30-vehicle garage, and a community facility space.

Although the renderings provided by Gerald J. Caliendo Architects are purely illustrative, it does show the capacity for a mid-rise building with several ground-floor commercial tenants and a garage with access along 30th Street. The corner lot provides bountiful light and opportunity for outdoor space across several elevations.

30-02 Newtown Avenue is steps away from the 30th Avenue subway station, serviced by the N and W trains.

Construction permits have not been filed yet and no estimated completion date has been announced.

    Rendering conveniently leaves out the elevated train running directly in front of the building.

      Uh, they do show it one of the renderings. Also, the other two are showing the building as viewed from more or less under the tracks, so they had to take it out so you could see the entire building which is, ya know, kinda the point of renderings. Lastly, bite my groin.

  4. Every rendering leaves out a structure of any kind that blocks the perspective. Kinda Rendering 101. Nothing dishonest about it as you appear to suggest.
