Property owner Zhen Zun Li has filed applications for two three-story, three-unit residential buildings at 74-31 – 74-33 44th Avenue, in Elmhurst, four blocks south of subway stops on the E, F, M, R, and 7 trains and caught at the intersection of Broadway and Roosevelt Avenue. Each structure will measure 4,146 square feet in total, and there will be 6,270 square feet of residential space across both buildings. That means full-floor units will average 1,045 square feet apiece. Chang Hwa Tan’s Flushing-based Tan Architect is the applicant of record. Demolition permits were filed last October to raze the existing three-and-a-half-story wood-frame house.
Elmhurst-based Song Lin has filed applications for ten four-story, three-unit residential buildings at 85-08 – 85-20 57th Avenue and 84-71 – 84-77 57th Road, in Elmhurst, five blocks from the Woodhaven Boulevard stop on the M and R trains. The buildings, which will vary in size, will be built on a block-thru lot at the current site of the New York Bethzatha Church. Six of them will have 3,995 square feet of residential space each, which means their units will average 1,332 square feet apiece. Two other buildings will measure 3,979 square feet, one will have 4,698 square feet and the final building will total 6,237 square feet. The units in the largest building would average 2,079 square feet, so condominiums are more than likely in the works. Chang Hwa Tan’s Flushing-based Tan Architect is the architect of record. Demolition permits were filed to remove the church in November.
Zhong Chen has filed applications for a four-story, three-unit residential building at 108-62 42nd Avenue, in North Corona, three blocks from the 111th Street stop on the 7 train. The project will measure 4,562 square feet in its entirety and includes 3,499 square feet of residential space. That means full-floor units will measure an average 1,166 square feet apiece. Chang Hwa Tan’s Flushing-based Tan Architect is the architect of record. Permits to demolish the existing 2.5-story, two-unit building were filed earlier this month.
Almost a year ago, YIMBY reported on applications for a seven-story, 23-unit mixed-use building at 109-15 72nd Road, in Forest Hills, and now DNAinfo has a rendering of the project. The building will measure 36,248 square feet in its entirety, with 22,192 square feet designated for residential space and 5,033 square feet for ground-floor retail. The apartment units will come in one-, two-, and three-bedroom configurations and will average 965 square feet apiece. Chuan Shu Wang is the developer and Flushing-based Tan Architect is designing the project. The existing 2.5-story building has been demolished and completion is expected later this year.
London-based Quadrum Global acquired the 179,000 square-foot development site at 53 Huron Street (a.k.a. 161 West Street), in Greenpoint, back in 2014 for $45.5 million. With the inclusionary housing bonus and an up-zoning, the site could accommodate a roughly 430,000 square-foot development, and Young Kim’s Queens-based Tan Architect has designed such a project. According to Brownstoner, the plans, which are currently on hold, sport 15- and 22-story residential towers with 516 total units. A sky bridge would connect the towers, and a multi-level podium would include parking, a terrace, and probably retail space. It’s not known when the developer will move forward with the project, which would require the demolition of a two-story warehouse.
