Permits have been filed for two residential buildings at 82-12 and 82-14 31st Avenue, in Jackson Heights, Queens. The project will be a twenty-five minute walk to the nearest two stations, the Roosevelt Avenue-Jackson Heights Subway Station, serviced by the E, F, M, R trains, and the 82nd Street Station, serviced by the 7 trains. Earth and Planet Realty is developing.
Permits have been filed for a new 20-story hotel in Murray Hill, Manhattan. The site, at 347 Lexington Avenue on the corner of East 40th Street, is just a few blocks away from Grand Central Terminal, serviced by the 4, 5, 6, 7, shuttle to Times Square, and the Metro-North railroad trains.
Another day, another new development in Astoria. Permits have been filed for a five-story residential building at 23-43 31st Road. The project is being developed by D10 Group Inc, based in Jericho, New York. The company has already finished numerous projects in Astoria and anticipates completing three more by 2018. The 50-foot-high structure will bring 18,283 square footage of residential space, to be divided amongst 25 units, and there will also be a gym and space for rooftop recreation. The lot is five blocks away from the N & W subway lines, over on Broadway, and the architect responsible for the design will be the Queens-based firm, Tan Architect PC. Demolition permits for the old occupant were filed in June.
A seven-story development is slated to rise at 37-21 32nd Street in Dutch Kills, in northeast Long Island City. The mixed-use project is one of several that are rapidly transforming the former industrial neighborhood. The 105,394-square-foot structure would occupy almost the entirety of the through-block lot, which stretches northwest-southeast between 32nd and 33rd streets.
Last October, we announced a proposal for a seven-story mixed-use building at 71-66 Parsons Boulevard in eastern Queens, put forth by Bi Yuan Chen of Parsons Tower LLC. Quite a lot has been done on the 55-unit project since then, and structural completion is very close. Facade work is expected to start in the near future. Zhong Wang Construction Inc. is listed as the general contractor.
