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.

  1. I grew up in Corona, Queens and this is particularly exciting news in terms of bringing forth the kind of change I envisioned for my home community. A kind of building that through its democratic nature and program can give a community something to stand for as well as become a catalyst for future generations. I’m currently an Environmental Design major, Architecture minor at the University at Buffalo. This school takes the marriage of architecture and urban planning seriously, and I particularly like that a firm like TEN Arquitectos has invested an interest in such a unique site. I look forward to someday doing something of equal caliber and importance for Corona, Queens as well.
