Permits have been filed for a seven-story commercial building at 25-41 Borden Avenue, in Hunters Point, Queens. The site is just a few blocks away from a rail yard that functionally separates the area from the rest of the neighborhood. The Hunters Point Avenue subway station is five blocks away, serviced by the 7 train. Eight blocks away is the 21st Street Subway Station, serviced by the G trains. The site is right by the Newtown Creek, which marks Queens’ border with Brooklyn. An anonymous LLC is behind the applications.
The 75-foot tall structure will yield 49,330 square feet of space, with 26,590 square feet dedicated to commercial-retail use. 47 parking spaces will be available in the first and second floors, with a shamefully small dedicated capacity for three bicycles.
Office space will populate floors four through seven, with outdoor terraces on the third floor, seventh floor, and rooftop. The first floor will contain a lobby and retail space.
Ndkazalas Architecture will be responsible for the design.
The project would replace a low-slung structure in a dense industrial part of the neighborhood, providing new office space to an area that hasn’t seen much in the past few decades. Demolition permits have not been filed, and the estimated completion date has not been announced.
