Construction is currently underway for the four-story residential building coming to 157 Beach 96th Street, in the Seaside neighborhood of Rockaway Beach, Queens. High-density middle-income buildings dominate the area. The site is six blocks away from the Beach 98th Street subway station, serviced by the A and S trains. An anonymous LLC is listed as responsible for the development, and today, YIMBY has the first renderings of what it will soon look like.
157 Beach 96th Street
An anonymous Queens-based LLC has filed applications for a four-story, 10-unit residential building at 157 Beach 96th Street, in Seaside. That’s a neighborhood along the Rockaways in southern Queens. The project will measure 10,548 square feet and its residential units should average 987 square feet apiece, which means the units could either be rentals or condominiums. There will be a total of eight off-street parking spaces. Oscar M. Fuertes’s Bayside-based OMF Architecture is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide, 5,000-square-foot property is currently vacant. A two-story house occupied the site until July. The Beach 98th Street stop on the A train and Rockaway Park Shuttle is two blocks away.
