The F&T Group recently finished its sprawling, mixed-use development called One Fulton Square in downtown Flushing. Now, the local builder is moving forward with its next big mega-project, Two Fulton Square, which will replace the former Flushing Mall.
A major milestone was recently reached by a 1.8-million-square-foot mixed-use development under construction in downtown Flushing, Queens.
Towards the end of August, the New York Times provided an update on Flushing Commons, a 1.8-million square-foot mixed-use development underway in downtown Flushing, and now Commercial Observer has the latest news on the project. The first phase includes an 11-story, 164,000 square-foot office building at 38-18 Union Street, and steel is now at the third floor above street level, with the structure expected to be complete by November 2016. F&T Group, The Rockefeller Group and AECOM Capital are developing, and Perkins Eastman is designing.
Early in 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of Flushing Commons, a 1.8-million square-foot mixed-use development coming to downtown Flushing, located on the former municipal parking lot between 37th and 39th Avenues, and Union and 138th Streets. Last summer, the developers broke ground on phase 1, which includes 148 condominiums and 220,000 square feet of commercial space, and now The New York Times has an updated rendering, showing buildings with slightly more glass than before.
The developer of two other Flushing megaprojects is planning a third 13-story apartment tower on the site of Flushing Mall, which shuttered in January after 15 years as one of the neighborhood’s busiest food courts and commercial hubs.
