Brooklyn-based S R Builders has filed applications for a three-story, six-unit residential building at 209 McKinley Avenue, in eastern Cypress Hills, located five blocks from the Grant Avenue stop on the A train. The building will measure 6,080 square feet, which means units will average a relatively spacious 1,013 square feet. Arnold Montag’s Great Neck-based AM/PM Design is the architect of record, and the site’s former two-story wood-frame building was demolished back in 2008.

As New York City’s development boom pushes further into the outer boroughs, builders are looking for more affordable properties in neighborhoods where few developers have been willing to tread since the city’s real estate market bottomed out in 2009.
But now the area east of Queens College—known as Pomonok or Kew Gardens Hills—is finally seeing some new construction.
