The building will measure 6,225 square feet, which means units will average 890 square feet apiece. Flushing-based Chang Hwa Tan is the architect of record, and the existing 1.5-story home was filed for demolition this past July.

Early in 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of Flushing Commons, a 1.8-million square-foot mixed-use development coming to downtown Flushing, located on the former municipal parking lot between 37th and 39th Avenues, and Union and 138th Streets. Last summer, the developers broke ground on phase 1, which includes 148 condominiums and 220,000 square feet of commercial space, and now The New York Times has an updated rendering, showing buildings with slightly more glass than before.
Nearly a year ago, YIMBY reported on the initial filings for a 27-story, 120-unit mixed-use building at 27-21 44th Drive, in Long Island City, and then over the summer, schematic drawings were posted to the on-site fencing. Now, excavation and foundation work has begun, per The Court Square Blog. The latest filings call for a 112,376 square-foot tower, featuring 5,850 square feet of ground-floor retail, and units averaging 883 square feet on the floors above. Silvercup Properties is developing, while GF55 Partners is designing, and completion is expected in late 2017.
In July, YIMBY revealed renderings of Able Management Group’s planned 27-story Hilton Garden Inn at 93-43 Sutphin Boulevard, in downtown Jamaica, and now the developer has closed on site’s acquisition for an unknown amount. New building applications have also been filed, and the building will measure 110,208 square feet and contain 325 hotel room, up from 225 in our last report. The hotel will operate a restaurant and bar on the ground floor, and guest amenities will be located on the second and third floors. GF55 Partners is designing, and a single-story building must first be demolished.
