Guo H Hu, doing business as an anonymous Queens-based LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, four-unit mixed-use building at 45-08 Junction Boulevard, in Corona, located six blocks south of the Junction Boulevard stop on the 7 train. The new structure will measure just 3,987 square feet in total and will include a small 449 square-foot doctor’s office on the ground floor. The residential units, three of which will have full-floor layouts, will average 750 square feet apiece. Flushing-based An Shen Ma is the architect of record. The site’s existing two-and-a-half-story wood-framed building must first be demolished.
Late last year, the city began infrastructure work and laying out the new streets for phase two of the Hunters Point South mega-development, in the Hunters Point section of Long Island City, directly on the East River. The second phase will see the mixed-use build-out of seven city blocks as well as new public park space. DNAinfo reports the city’s Department of Education is planning to built a new 600-student elementary school on the blocks bound by 57th and 56th avenues, Center Boulevard, and Second Street. That’s on the very southern tip of the master plan and will be located on block “F” in the image above. The school will have its own building and should cost roughly $60 million. Completion of the school is expected in 2020.
Property owner Moshe Granit has filed applications for a nine-story, 30-key hotel at 38-38 11th Street, in northern Long Island City’s Ravenswood section, located four blocks from the 21st Street – Queensbridge stop on the F train. The new building will measure 15,664 square feet on the 25-foot-wide lot. There will be four or three hotel rooms on each floor, a lobby on the ground floor, and a breakfast area in the cellar. Individual hotel suites will average roughly 440 square feet apiece, which is relatively large. Jamaica-based Manish S. Savani is the architect of record. The 2,152-square-foot plot of land is currently vacant.
It’s been months since we checked in on Heatherwood Communities’ high-rise residential project at 42-12 28th Street in Long Island City. As of July, it had reached 10 stories. Now, thanks to somewhat dramatic photos taken by our friend Tectonic, we can see that the 58-story building must be close to its final height.
