It was back in June that YIMBY brought you news of a new apartment building planned for downtown Jamaica. Now, we can show you what the eight-story structure at 178-02 Hillside Avenue will look like and we can also tell you its unit count has increased.
Property owner Anthony Gallo has filed applications for four three-story, multi-family residential buildings at 139-12 – 139-22 Atlantic (95th) Avenue, in Jamaica, six blocks from Jamaica Station. Each will measure 2,960 square feet and have four residential units, which means units will average a rental-sized 740 square feet apiece. Joseph Sultana’s Bayside-based JLS Designs is the applicant of record, and the plot of land is currently vacant.
A sprawling nine-story hotel may replace a collection of vacant lots and industrial buildings in Jamaica, a few blocks south of the LIRR and AirTrain station.
Floral Park-based O&B Properties has filed applications to building a six-unit residential development spanning 104-84 – 104-88 165th Street, in Jamaica, located a number of blocks south of Jamaica Avenue. The developer will expand an existing two-story, single-family home to accommodate two units, and build two additional two-story, two-unit attached residential buildings. The expanded structure will have units averaging 824 square feet, while the new buildings will have family-sized units averaging 1,516 square feet. Queens-based Gerald Caliendo is the architect of record.
Kingston Property’s planned nine-story, 22-unit residential building is now two stories above street level at 89-14 150th Street, in downtown Jamaica, a few blocks north the stations for the E, J and Z trains (on Archer Avenue). The building will measure 22,691 square feet, and the units will be condos, averaging 1,031 square feet apiece; there will only be two- and three-bedroom configurations. A small health care facility will operate in the basement level, and completion is expected in 2017. Maspeth-based Angelo Ng + Anthony Ng Architects Studio is designing.
