Mixed-Use Development Considered for Industrial Site at 57-46 56th Street, Maspeth

The Chetrit Group is in the early stages of planning for a mixed-use project that would rise on the irregularly-shaped, eight-acre property at 57-46 56th Street, in Maspeth. The developer previously sat down with local elected officials to discuss rezoning the property for residential units, according to Crain’s, which would trigger the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP), as the site is currently located within an Industrial Business Zone (IBZ) and zoned for manufacturing. Nothing yet has been formally proposed. Multiple low-rise industrial warehouses occupy the property.

Four-Story, 12-Unit Residential Project Planned at 41-30 66th Street, Woodside

An anonymous Elmhurst-based LLC has filed applications for a four-story, 12-unit residential building at 41-30 66th Street, in Woodside. The project will measure 11,341 square feet and its residential units should average 833 square feet apiece. There will also be eight off-street parking spaces. It’s unclear whether the apartments will be rentals or condominiums. Chang Hwa Tan’s Flushing-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 40-foot-wide, 4,998-square-foot lot is occupied by a dilapidated two-story house. Demolition permits have not been filed.

Landmarks Preservation Commission’s Backlog Nearly Cleared with 10 More Designations

Two years ago, the Landmarks Preservation Commission floated the idea of clearing its backlog of items from before 2010 by simply de-calendaring all of them. That was not well-received, to put it lightly. So, they devised a series of steps to actually address those 95 items. That process nearly came to an end today, with the designation of 10 new city landmarks.

Eight-Story, 83-Unit Residential Project Rises to Third Floor At 14-07 Broadway, Astoria

Construction is three stories above street level on the eight-story, 83-unit residential building under development at 14-07 Broadway, located on the corner of 14th Street western Astoria. Progress on construction can be seen thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the project, dubbed The Baron, will encompass 107,488 square feet and rise 80 feet above street level, not including bulkhead elements. The condominium residential units should average 878 square feet apiece. Lions Group is the developer and Raymond Chan’s Flushing-based architecture firm is responsible for the design. An anticipated completion date is unknown, but late 2017 seems reasonable.
