The opening of 30-02 39th Avenue, in Long Island City, Queens, will bring another 428 rental units to the market. The site is on the same block as the 39th Avenue subway station, serviced by the N and W trains. The project is being named ARC, and The Lightstone Group is responsible for development.
An anonymous LLC has filed permits for three lots in Far Rockaway, Queens. The proposal is for three identical three-story residential buildings on lots at 11-30, 11-32, and 11-34 McBride Street. The site is a half-mile away from the Far Rockaway-Mott Avenue station, end of the A train, and a third of a mile away from the Far Rockaway station serviced by the Long Island Railroad. YIMBY last reported on 11-30 McBride Street in 2015, when permits for a sixteen-unit structure were filed.
Today YIMBY has both the reveal, and a construction update on 25-16 37th Avenue, aka ‘The Smyth,’ in Long Island City’s Dutch Kills neighborhood. Excavation is nearly complete, and foundation work is expected to begin shortly.
Permits have been filed for a six-story mixed-use building at 144 38th Avenue, in Flushing, Queens. The development will replace a rather unattractive four-story residential structure. The site is five blocks away from the 7 train’s last stop, Main Street Station. Tan Architects will be responsible for the design. The architecture firm has also recently filed permits for a hotel just a block away from the Main Street station.
Permits have been filed for a new six-story commercial building at 31-40 Whitestone Expressway in Flushing, Queens. The new development comes after Storage Deluxe purchased the site from Cube Smart for $27 million. Their plan is to refurbish the existing building, and erect a second storage building to create a total 179,000 square at the site. Storage Deluxe had sold 21 of its facilities to Cube Smart in 2011 for a total $560 million. The company is responsible for development.
