Two-Story, 8,300-Square-Foot Restaurant Planned at 150-50 Northern Boulevard, Murray Hill, Queens

An anonymous Flushing-based company has filed applications for a two-story, 8,363-square-foot commercial-retail building at 150-50 Northern Boulevard, located at the corner of Murray Street in Flushing’s Murray Hill section. The structure, which will host a restaurant on both floors, is to rise on a 4,500-square-foot lot currently occupied by a two-story commercial building. Demolition permits were filed for the existing structure in May. Permits indicate the adjacent corner lot and the paring lot to the south are a part of the assemblage. Permits were filed to demolish the single-story corner building, at 150-56 Northern Boulevard, in June, but no new building permits have been submitted for that lot. Suk Hwan Kim’s Flushing-based Design Group in H&K is the architect of record. The site is located four blocks from the neighborhood’s Long Island Rail Road station.
