Developers Want Rezoning As 30-05 Whitestone Expressway Hits Market, Flushing

Mar Mar Realty is placing their 37,000 square-foot bowling ally at 30-05 Whitestone Expressway, in Flushing, on the market as a development site for $60 million, according to Commercial Observer. The site measures 80,000 square feet and is currently zoned for manufacturing, but the owner is seeking a rezoning of the property to allow for a 386,000 square-foot mixed-use development, with commercial and residential uses. Cushman & Wakefield is marketing the property, and the rezoning could possibly take a year to secure.

The Lower Manhattan Development Corp. will present their latest plans for the World Trade Center’s performing-arts center later this fall, according to The Wall Street Journal. The board previously abandoned Frank Gehry’s design and decided to limit the project’s above-grade construction costs to no more than $200 million. The latest plans now call for a three- to four-story building measuring roughly 80,000 square feet. The building would also include a 600- to 700-seat auditorium, a 200-seat theater, and a restaurant on the ground floor. The architect has not yet been named.
