Last December, YIMBY posted applications for Lions Group’s eight-story, 15-unit residential building at 42-83 Hunter Street, in Long Island City, and now The Court Square Blog has spotted on-site renderings of the project. The building will measure 12,335 square feet, which means units will average roughly 820 square feet. Jon Yung’s My Architect is the architect of record, and the site’s former single-story building has been removed. Excavation appears imminent, and completion is slated for Spring 2017.
Applications filed in April 2014 have resurfaced again calling for a seven-story, 59-unit mixed-use building at 98-02 – 98-12 Queens Boulevard, two blocks east from the 63rd Drive stop on the M and R lines, in Rego Park. Bahar Corporation is developing the 46,410 square-foot building, which will feature retail space in the cellar and 7,000 square feet of community space on the first floor. Peter Casini is the architect of record, and a single-story commercial building must first be demolished.
Filed in May 2014, applications have surfaced for an eight-story, 33-unit mixed-use building planned at 14-55 31st Avenue, in western Astoria. At the northwest corner of 31st Avenue and 21st Street, the building will measure 27,130 square feet, which includes 2,450 square feet of retail on the ground floor. Anthony Hu’s Centennial Astoria is developing, and JLS Designs is the architect of record. Demolition began earlier this year on two existing wood-framed townhouses at Nos. 14-53 and 14-57.

The developer plans to build a mixed-use, two-building project measuring a total 755,000 square feet. Retail space will measure 100,000 square feet across a three-story podium, and 580 residential units are expected between 26- and 14-story buildings. Construction is slated to begin later this year, although a slew of low-rise commercial buildings must first be demolished. FXFOWLE is designing.
