Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use building with affordable housing at 43-42 43rd Avenue in Sunnyside, Queens. Located at the intersection of Queens Boulevard and 43rd Avenue, the corner lot is a short walk to the 46th Street-Bliss Street subway station, serviced by the 7 train. John J. Ciafone of City View Construction Corp. is listed as the owner behind the applications.

The proposed 79-foot-tall development will yield 73,762 square feet, with 67,098 square feet designated for residential space and 6,664 square feet for commercial space. The building will have 99 residences, most likely rentals based on the average unit scope of 677 square feet. The concrete-based structure will also have two cellar levels, a 31-foot-long rear yard, and 138 enclosed parking spaces.

Gerald Caliendo Architects is listed as the architect of record.

Demolition permits will likely not be needed as the lot is vacant. An estimated completion date has not been announced.

  1. Wouldn’t it be 43rd St. not Avenue?

  2. Thats a whole bunch of parking even for a mixed use building when its sitting at the doorstep of the 7 train. Also Gerald Caliendo is the definition of a mediocre architect.

  3. 43rd st and it’s not a vacant lot

  4. With Caliendo, I have zero hope for a good looking building. But that’s not what they pay him for.

  5. I used to live in Sunnyside, New York for many years, and I live in California. Wonder if I can get application form for apartment, and do they accept section 8 voucher?
