Permits have been filed for a three-story community facility building at 104-19 Roosevelt Avenue, in North Corona, Queens. Corona borders the Citi Field baseball stadium, and is also near Flushing Bay promenade overlooking LaGuardia Airport. The site is just a block away from the 103rd Street-Corona Plaza subway station, serviced by the 7 train. Make the Road NY will be responsible for development, and the business promotes equal rights and economic and political opportunity for immigrants in New York.
The 40-foot tall community center will yield 23,650 square feet within, with 18,050 square feet dedicated to community facility use. Each floor is going to be devoted to a variety of functions. The cellar will bring an art room, kitchen, storage space, and classroom. An auditorium, gallery space, meeting room, three classrooms, twelve offices and a reception area will be on the first floor. The rest of the building will include an auditorium, terrace, dining space, conference rooms, and more offices.
Ten Arquitectos will be responsible for the design.
The lot is currently vacant, and the estimated completion date has not been announced.
