Foundation work is now underway for 36 four-story, two-family townhouses to be located at 11-05 – 11-21 46th Avenue, 11-06 – 11-16 45th Road, and 45-27 – 45-41 11th Street, in the Hunters Point section of Long Island City. Photos of the site have been posted by The Court Square Blog. The townhouses will measure between 3,950 and 4,954 square feet in size, and individual apartments should average 1,949 square feet apiece across the entire development. Valhalla, N.Y.-based GDC Properties is the developer and Newman Design Architects is behind the architecture. Completion is expected in 2018.
Back in May of 2015, YIMBY reported on applications filed for 36 four-story, two-family townhouses spanning 11-05 – 11-21 46th Avenue, 11-06 – 11-16 45th Road, and 45-27 – 45-41 11th Street, located in the Hunters Point section of Long Island City. Now, an on-site rendering part of the project has been spotted by The Court Square Blog, which can also report demolition of the 50,003-square-foot site’s former single-story warehouses is finished.
Long Island City’s mixed-use zoning has produced high rises filled with apartments and office space, as well as plenty of smaller residential buildings with ground-floor commercial space, but now the industrial neighborhood might get its first crop of new townhouses in half a century. Plans were filed on Friday for 12 two-family townhouses at 45-35 11th Street, a couple blocks from the Court Square subway stop.
