Permits have been filed for an expansion of a one-story structure into a five-story mixed-use building at 179-40 Hillside Avenue in Jamaica, Queens. Located at the intersection of 180th Street and Hillside Avenue, the lot is one block from the 179th Street subway station, serviced by the F train. Hussein Muthanna under the 179-46 Hillside Realty Corp. is listed as the owner behind the applications.
The proposed 59-foot-tall development will yield 28,622 square feet, with 16,054 square feet designated for residential space, 5,561 square feet for community facility space, and 7,007 square feet for commercial space. The building will have ten residences, most likely condos based on the average unit scope of 1,605 square feet. The steel-based structure will also have a cellar and six open parking spaces.
Urban Engineering is listed as the architect of record.
Demolition permits will likely not be needed as the project calls for an expansion. An estimated completion date has not been announced.
