Earlier this year, YIMBY revealed renderings of the Chetrit Group’s planned residential redevelopment of the former Mary Immaculate Hospital campus at 150-13 89th Avenue, in Jamaica. The project includes the addition of 324 residential units, but right across the street, the same developer is first building an unassociated eight-story, 59-unit apartment building that measures 45,606 square feet. Located at 152-09 88th Avenue, two blocks from the Parsons Boulevard stop on the E and F trains, the structure is currently five stories above street level, according to Commercial Observer. It recently received an $11 million construction loan. Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is designing both of Chetrit’s projects.

It got approval from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey in September, but yesterday announced that it is commencing the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure, or ULURP.
