The New York City Taxi & Limousine Commission, with the Department of Design and Construction, is planning to rebuild their facility currently located at 24-55 Brooklyn Queens Expressway West, in northern Woodside. The plans call for renovating and expanding the existing single-story facility into a two-story structure, with the inspection garage on the ground floor and offices on the second, DNAinfo reported. The redeveloped building will also feature a parking garage, indoor and outdoor common areas, and green infrastructure. The current facility is in dire need of repairs because part of it was built on unstable ground. TEN Arquitectos is responsible for the design, and the city’s Public Design Commission is required to approve the project. Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in August 2017, with completion in 2019.
