Only a few blocks away from the Queens Village LIRR station, and roughly an hour-long commute from Manhattan, permits have been filed for a large four-story commercial building at 222-25 Jamaica Avenue. The Queens neighborhood is famous for small picket-fence yards, so the new development will be a substantial change of pace.
The structure’s proposed height is 56 feet, and Paramjit Kaur is listed as the developer on the applications. 222-25 Jamaica Avenue will have a total construction area of 51,200 square feet, to be divided between 32,200 square feet of commercial retail on the first floor, and 19,300 square feet of medical facility space on the second, third, and fourth floors. The cellar will become a garage with 79 parking spaces.
Baobab Architects P.C. is responsible for the design, and an estimated completion date has not been announced.
