Property owner Zios Sachtouris has filed applications for a four-story, six-unit residential building at 82-22 South Conduit Avenue, in Lindenwood. The structure will measure 11,905 square feet and its residential units should average 1,273 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. The residences will take on a townhouse-style configuration, with each unit spanning across all four levels. Each unit will come with a single, enclosed parking space on the ground floor. Anthony C. Villano’s Brooklyn-based ACV Architecture is the architect of record. The 10,188-square-foot site, which is currently vacant, fronts a street that doesn’t exist yet. According to the tax lot map, there’s going to be a new street that diagonally connects Linden Boulevard and 149th Avenue. The dead ends of 80th, 81st, 82nd, and 84th streets will connect to the new street. For reference, the new building will be located between 82nd and 84th streets.
Brooklyn and Queens may already have more hotel rooms than they need, but developers keep building hotels in Long Island City. Last week’s crop of filings brought plans for a five-story hotel at 38-23 38th Street, between 38th and 39th avenues in the Dutch Kills section of the neighborhood.
A rendering has been revealed of Tishman Speyer’s planned two-tower, 1.1-million-square-foot office complex at 28-07 Jackson Avenue (a.k.a. 28-10 Queens Plaza South), in the Queens Plaza section of Long Island City. The towers – dubbed One and Three Gotham Center – will stand 27 stories, or 396 feet, in height. As YIMBY reported in June, new building applications indicate a common four-story base will include roughly 30,000 square feet of retail space, restaurants, a food hall, and a parking garage for cars and bikes. The rendering also depicts an outdoor terrace on the fifth floor. 800,000 square feet of office space in the complex has already been pre-leased. One tenant includes WeWork, which is set to take 250,000 square feet. Another is Bloomingdale’s, which has reserved 550,000 square feet of office space, Crain’s reported. Doha-based Qatari Diar is co-developing the project, while Financial District-based MdeAS Architects is designing. Excavation is expected to begin in early 2017, with completion scheduled for 2019. One and Three Gotham Center will join the 22-story, 700,000-square-foot Two Gotham Center located immediately to the north. Tishman Speyer developed that in 2011.
Leroy D. Blake, doing business as an anonymous Corona-based LLC, has filed applications for five mixed-use, multi-family buildings at 43-06 102nd Street and 101-16 – 101-20 43rd Avenue, in North Corona. Two of the buildings will rise three stories and contain three apartments, while another two will stand four stories and contain four apartments. New building permits indicate there will be a fifth building, but it hasn’t been individually filed yet. Of the filed structures, they will measure between 3,971 square feet and 4,508 square feet each. There will be 11,855 square feet of residential space and 3,469 square feet of ground-floor retail space.

The 7,725-square-foot corner lot is currently occupied by an auto repair business. Demolition permits were filed in June. The 103rd Street-Corona Plaza stop on the 7 train is four blocks away.
