Permits have been filed for a nine-story residential building at 45-57 Davis Street, in Long Island City, Queens. The project is just a block away from Court Square, serviced by the 7 train, and end of the line for G trains. Court Square-23rd Street is just four blocks further, and is serviced by the E and M trains. The subways allow for a quick commute directly into Midtown Manhattan. Solomon Feder, of Brooklyn-based Velocity Framers USA, will be responsible for the development.
Feder recently purchased the site from Vorea Holdings for $24.8 million, according to the Real Deal.
The 119-foot tall building will yield 157,600 square feet, with 106,540 square feet dedicated to residential use, and 290 square feet for commercial-retail use on the ground floor.
Tenants will have access to a bicycle parking with capacity for 80, and a lobby, recreational space and laundry room on the ground floor. 158 apartments will be created, averaging 674 square feet apiece, indicating rentals.
Charles Mallea Architects will be responsible for the design.
Demolition permits were filed in mid-October of 2017. According to TRD, construction is expected to begin by the end of next year.
