Grand Centurion Construction has filed applications for a three-story, three-unit apartment hotel at 50-34 69th Street, in Maspeth, located nine blocks south of the 7 train’s stop at 69th Street and Roosevelt Avenue. The building will operate like an extended-stay hotel but will have contract-free “residential-like” units averaging a spacious 1,472 square feet apiece. Maspeth-based Angelo Ng + Anthony Ng Architects Studio is the architect of record, and permits were filed to demolished an existing single-story house late last year.
Property owner Noam Aorta has filed applications for a two-story, two-unit mixed-use building at 73-45 Myrtle Avenue, in Glendale, with direct access to the Q55 bus line. The building will measure 4,232 square feet and will be split between retail and health care facility spaces on the ground floor, and residential space on the second floor. Residential units will average 1,058 square feet apiece. The building will be constructed on a vacant corner lot, and New Jersey-based T.F. Cusanelli & Filletti Architects is the applicant of record.
In October of 2014, YIMBY reported on filings for a 27-story, 168-unit residential building at 27-19 44th Drive, in Long Island City, and now The Court Square Blog has spotted on-site renderings of the project, which is being developed by Twining Properties. The latest permits have the building measuring 128,006 square feet, which includes 2,807 square feet of ground-floor retail space, and units averaging 731 square feet apiece. Handel Architects is the architect of record. Demolition of the site’s two-story predecessor finished in September, and completion is slated for the summer of 2017.
Not much development happens in East Elmhurst, a sleepy little neighborhood in Queens sandwiched in between LaGuardia Airport, Willets Point, and Flushing Bay. The working class area doesn’t have any subway lines, unless residents want to take a long walk or a bus to the 7 train at Roosevelt Avenue.
Mar Mar Realty is placing their 37,000 square-foot bowling ally at 30-05 Whitestone Expressway, in Flushing, on the market as a development site for $60 million, according to Commercial Observer. The site measures 80,000 square feet and is currently zoned for manufacturing, but the owner is seeking a rezoning of the property to allow for a 386,000 square-foot mixed-use development, with commercial and residential uses. Cushman & Wakefield is marketing the property, and the rezoning could possibly take a year to secure.
