Brooklyn-based Xiaofeng Realty Development has filed applications for a three-story, six-unit residential building at 1060 66th Street, in Dyker Heights, located six blocks from the Fort Hamilton Parkway stop on the N train. The structure will measure 7,400 square feet and its residential units should average 900 square feet apiece, which means either rentals or condominiums could be in the works. Maspeth-based Angelo Ng & Anthony Ng Architects Studio is the architect of record. The 40-foot-wide, 4,000-square-foot lot is currently occupied by a two-and-a-half-story house. Demolition permits have not yet been filed.

Woodside, Elmhurst, and Woodhaven in Queens are suddenly bursting with new residential projects, largely from developers who hope to capture a mix of gentrifiers, longtime residents, and new immigrants. And generous new zoning along Queens Boulevard ensures that nearly all those developments are concentrated along the busy, six-lane artery. The latest project to arrive on the scene there is 46-02 70th Street, which will rise nine stories at the corner of Queens Boulevard and 70th Street.
Elmhurst’s development boom is expanding westward into Maspeth. We have a look at a four-story commercial and medical office building headed to 54-08 74th Street, in the industrial borderlands between Maspeth and Elmhurst.
The stretch of western Astoria that runs next to Hallets Point and south of Astoria Park hasn’t seen much new residential construction, but the development tide has begun to turn in the solidly middle-class neighborhood. A six-story building is coming to 8-29 Astoria Boulevard, mid-block between 8th and 12th streets.
In January, YIMBY checked in on the construction of a six-story building at 11-07 Welling Court in Astoria. Now we’ve got a fresh rendering for the development, which is surrounded by a long-running public art project.
