Mixed-Use Development Planned At 42-25 Queens Boulevard, Sunnyside

Astoria-based landlord John Ciafone is planning to construct a mixed-use development at 42-15 – 42-25 Queens Boulevard, in Sunnyside, according to DNAinfo. The site is located just three blocks from the 7 train’s stop at 40th Street. The project would include commercial and/or community space on the ground floor, and residential units above, some of which may be designated affordable. Existing single-story buildings must first be demolished; a pub as well as a cinema have already vacated their spaces.

Four-Story, Three-Unit Residential Project Filed At 1143 Hancock Street, Bushwick

Neighborhood Restore HDFC has filed applications for a four-story, three-unit residential building at 1143 Hancock Street, in southern Bushwick, located three blocks north from the Halsey Street stop on the J train. There will be 4,376 square feet, and one of the three units will be a duplex. Suzanna Tharian’s Greenwich Village-based Stat Architecture is the applicant of record, and the site’s three-story predecessor was demolished back in 2007.

The overall design of the proposed building, if it were new for a vacant lot, would likely have received (or been close to receiving) approval from the LPC, but as an addition, it was too much for the commissioners (and the public, which showed up en masse).
