Four Three-Story Mixed-Use Buildings With 10 Apartments Coming to 109-03 34th Avenue, North Corona

An anonymous Flushing-based incorporation has filed applications for four three-story buildings at 109-03 34th Avenue and 33-39 through 33-43 109th Street, in North Corona. Two of the buildings will each contain three residential units, while the other two will contain medical offices on their ground floors, followed by two apartments each. Across all four buildings, the residential units should average 777 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. There will be a total 1,015 square feet of medical space. Chang Hwa Tan’s Flushing-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 6,439-square-foot corner lot is currently occupied by a two-story house. Demolition permits were filed in October.

245-Unit Residential Conversion Planned for 12-Story, 350,000-Square-Foot Office Building, 440 Hamilton Avenue, White Plains

Long Island-based American Equity Partners is preparing to file applications to convert the 12-story, 350,000-square-foot office building at 440 Hamilton Avenue, located on the corner of North Broadway in downtown White Plains, into 245 rental apartments. Twenty-five of the units, roughly 10 percent of the total, will be designated as affordable. The project includes a redesigned façade and the addition of a 13th-floor penthouse, Westfair reported. A ground-floor retail unit is also planned, and it’s possible up to two floors of office space could remain, depending on demand. White Plains-based Papp Architects is designing the conversion. The project will go before the city’s Zoning Board of Appeals.

The larger of its buildings, at 304-306 Canal Street, is already under redevelopment. Now, the Landmarks Preservation Commission is overseeing the redevelopment of 308-310 Canal Street. The agency held a public hearing on it last Tuesday, but no approval was granted.
