Construction is finally wrapping up on the Queens Library’s reconstructed three-story, 30,515-square-foot Elmhurst branch at 86-07 Broadway (a.k.a. 86-01 51st Avenue), located two blocks north of the Grand Av-Newtown stop on the M/R trains. The building will open in the fall, once the interiors get completed and furnished, DNAinfo reported. The library will host study areas, classrooms, an assembly hall, and storage rooms. Construction began on the library back in 2012 and was initially expected to open a year later. Sandro Marpillero’s TriBeCa-based Marpillero Pollak Architects is behind the design. The city’s Department of Design and Construction is leading the project.
