Towards the end of August, the New York Times provided an update on Flushing Commons, a 1.8-million square-foot mixed-use development underway in downtown Flushing, and now Commercial Observer has the latest news on the project. The first phase includes an 11-story, 164,000 square-foot office building at 38-18 Union Street, and steel is now at the third floor above street level, with the structure expected to be complete by November 2016. F&T Group, The Rockefeller Group and AECOM Capital are developing, and Perkins Eastman is designing.
Andy Pitsillos, of Brooklyn-based FLFB Realty, has filed applications for a five-story, 14-unit residential building at 213 20th Street, in South Slope, four blocks away from the Prospect Avenue stop on the R train. The building will total 10,000 square feet, which means units will average a rental-sized 714 square feet. John Haskopoulos’ Borough Park-based SHV Designs is the applicant of record, and permits were filed in July to demolish two existing homes.
Ralph Notaro has filed applications for a three-story, six-unit residential building at 47 28th Avenue, in southern Gravesend, two blocks from the Bay 50th Street stop on the D train.

Beginning on the second floor, there will be two units per floor, averaging a rental-sized 617 square feet apiece. Zarina Ross’ Coney Island-based Arcon Studio is the applicant of record, and an existing two-story brick house must first be demolished.
