The project was reported to consist of 481 units when plans were first unveiled in October.

All of the units would rent at below-market rates.
An anonymous Queens-based LLC has filed applications for a four-story, 10-unit mixed-use building at 31-47 137th Street, located on the corner of 32nd Avenue in downtown Flushing.

The apartments should average 765 square feet; in Flushing, units of this size could indicate either condominiums or rentals. Hui Zeng’s Bayside-based ABC Engineering is the applicant of record. The lot is currently vacant.
