In September, YIMBY revealed renderings of Flushing Point Plaza, a three-building, 19-story development headed to 131-02 40th Road in western Flushing. Yesterday, plans were filed for a 19-story hotel, the third and final piece of the project.
Construction is well underway on a four-building, 1.2-million-square-foot mixed-use development, dubbed Tangram, in downtown Flushing. The project is located on much of the block bound by College Point Boulevard, Prince Street, and 37th and 39th avenues. Work appears to be above street level on the 13-story, 192-unit residential building at 133-27 39th Avenue. The condominium residential units in this building should average 987 square feet, per the latest building permits. Also under construction is a four-level, 377-car underground parking garage.
Corona-based United Construction & Development Group has entered into contract to purchase the vacant, 3.7-acre mixed-use development site at 131-35 Roosevelt Avenue, a.k.a. 39-08 Janet Place, in downtown Flushing. The sale is expected close for more than $100 million, The Real Deal reported. The site can accommodate up to 870,000 square feet of mixed-use development. In fact, plans for four 16-story towers, connected by a common base, were approved in 2008. That would include 457 residential units, 313,000 square feet of commercial space, and 7,500 square feet of community facility space. It’s unclear whether the next owner will move forward with those plans, but United has reportedly met with the Ismael Leyva Architects, who was responsible for them.
One of the items on the Landmarks Preservation Commission’s backlog of items on the calendar since before 2010 came back before it on Tuesday.

The industrial area near downtown Flushing may have escaped a rezoning from the city, but developers are still eyeing the warehouses and building supply stores for future high-rises. One of those builders has filed plans for a 12-story, mixed-use development at 133-34 36th Road, a few blocks from the Main Street stops on the 7 train and the Long Island Railroad.
