Flushing-based property owner Tu Kang Yang has filed applications for two two-story residential buildings at 5-11 – 5-15 126th Street, on the northern end of College Point, in Queens. The building at 5-15 126th Street will measure 2,647 square feet and contain two full-floor apartment units, averaging 893 square feet apiece. The second house, at 5-11 126th Street, will measure 3,220 square feet, but will house a single family. Chang Hwa Tan’s Flushing-based Tan Architect is the architect of record. Demolition permits were filed in December for the site’s existing two-story, single-family structure, along with an associated garage.
In October of 2015, YIMBY revealed a rendering of the nine-story, 32-unit mixed-use building underway at 41-04 27th Street, in the Queens Plaza section of Long Island City. At the time, foundation work was underway, but now the structure is five stories above street level and rising, according to The Court Square Blog. The new building, dubbed Queens Boro Tower, will encompass 30,355 square feet and will feature 4,073 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Its residential units should average 654 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. The Schedule A lists a fitness center in the cellar as an amenity. Rego Park-based Great Stone Development is behind the project and Chang Hwa Tan’s Queens-based Tan Architect is designing. Completion can probably be expected by 2017.
In December of 2014, YIMBY reported on filings for a six-story, eight-unit mixed-use building at 42-43 27th Street, in the Queens Plaza section of Long Island City. Then in the spring of 2015, the single-story occupant was demolished. Now, The Court Square Blog reports that excavation work is underway and a schematic drawing of the new building is posted on-site. Chang Hwa Tang’s Flushing-based Tan Architect is responsible for the design of the 9,372-square-foot project. There will be 1,450 square feet of ground-floor retail space and the residential units should average a rental-sized 694 square feet apiece. Xi Zhao, doing business as a Rego Park-based LLC, is the developer. Completion is expected in the summer of 2017.
Property owner Zhen Zun Li has filed applications for two three-story, three-unit residential buildings at 74-31 – 74-33 44th Avenue, in Elmhurst, four blocks south of subway stops on the E, F, M, R, and 7 trains and caught at the intersection of Broadway and Roosevelt Avenue. Each structure will measure 4,146 square feet in total, and there will be 6,270 square feet of residential space across both buildings. That means full-floor units will average 1,045 square feet apiece. Chang Hwa Tan’s Flushing-based Tan Architect is the applicant of record. Demolition permits were filed last October to raze the existing three-and-a-half-story wood-frame house.
Elmhurst-based Song Lin has filed applications for ten four-story, three-unit residential buildings at 85-08 – 85-20 57th Avenue and 84-71 – 84-77 57th Road, in Elmhurst, five blocks from the Woodhaven Boulevard stop on the M and R trains. The buildings, which will vary in size, will be built on a block-thru lot at the current site of the New York Bethzatha Church. Six of them will have 3,995 square feet of residential space each, which means their units will average 1,332 square feet apiece. Two other buildings will measure 3,979 square feet, one will have 4,698 square feet and the final building will total 6,237 square feet. The units in the largest building would average 2,079 square feet, so condominiums are more than likely in the works. Chang Hwa Tan’s Flushing-based Tan Architect is the architect of record. Demolition permits were filed to remove the church in November.
