On Rockaway Beach Boulevard near the Rockaway Park A train stop, a block and a half of storefronts burned down and were battered by storm surges during Hurricane Sandy three years ago. But now the strip between Beach 115th and 113th Streets is about to see some new life. Applications were filed today for two three-story, mixed-use buildings at 114-06 and 114-30 Rockaway Beach Boulevard, about a mile and a half west of the Cross Bay Bridge that links the peninsula with Howard Beach in mainland Queens.
The two buildings have nearly identical plans with slight variations in square footage. They’ll each house 27 apartments over roughly 23,000 square feet of residential space, for an average unit of 851 square feet. The first floors will include 3,900 square feet of retail and community facility space. No. 114-06 will have 3,387 square feet of community facilities, specifically medical offices, and No. 114-30 will host 3,576 square feet.
There will be apartments on all three floors, but the Schedule A doesn’t specify the exact layout.
The developer is Dino Tomasetti of Laquila Group, headquartered in Flatbush, and Victor Filletti of T.F. Cusanelli and Filletti Architects filed the permits.
The two properties last changed hands for a combined $657,040 in March.
