YIMBY previously reported on 46-20 11th Street in Long Island City back in January, when new building applications were filed for the site with the DOB. Now, the reveal is out, thanks to The Court Square Blog, which spotted the on-site renderings yesterday. The project will rise seven floors and total 40,035 square feet of residential space, to be divided amongst 42 units, with a design by Raymond Chan Architects. 11th Street Condominiums LLC is developing, and the site’s former two-story warehouse has now been demolished, with completion is anticipated by the spring of 2019.
Astoria usually sees residential or minimally mixed-use development, but today, YIMBY has news for a new hotel coming to the neighborhood, immediately adjacent to the 30th Avenue stop on the N and W lines. The new building will rise at 30-17 31st Street, on a lot that is currently vacant, with a design by T.F. Cusanelli and Filletti Architects. There will be 5,544 square feet of community facility space on the first two floors, containing an ambulatory facility, as well as 13,529 square feet of commercial space, to be divided between a retail component on the ground floor, and 48 hotel rooms on levels three through nine. Antonio Mourtil of “Anton Developer of Forest Hills” is listed as the developer.
The Durst Organization acquired the development site surrounding and including 27-29 Queens Plaza North last December for $173.5 million, and while SLCE Architects had previously conceived plans for a tower nearing supertall status, the design now appears to be changing. Handel Architects has filed for permits for a two-story retail building that will rise at 29-23 Queens Plaza North, on the southwestern corner of the site, which will have a total construction area of just over 20,000 square feet. There will be 10,333 square feet of commercial space within, and the structure will rise 41 feet to its rooftop.
YIMBY doesn’t often report on filings for single-family residences, but today we have news for 204-23 46th Road, near the border of Auburndale and Bayside, in Queens. New building applications for the site show the home will have a total construction area of only 1,541 square feet, but the innovative design by Dennis George Architect promises to make up for the size with an innovative layout and a rather attractive exterior.
A two-story house at 103-43 120th Street, in South Ozone Park, Queens, is about to bite the dust. Building applications have been filed for its imminent replacement, which will rise five floors, and span 8,580 square feet. Mang Wong of Pondosa, Inc. is designing the structure, which will have ten units in total, averaging 858 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. Gorden Tan of 4918 Property LLC is listed as the developer, and demolition permits for the extant house have not yet been pulled.
