Permits have been filed for a new four-story residential building at 89-28 138th Place, in Jamaica, Queens. The development is just half a block away from the Jamaica Avenue commercial thoroughfare, and six blocks away from the avenue’s major intersection with Sutphin Boulevard. That intersection is two blocks away from the Sutphin Boulevard subway station, serviced by the E, J, and Z trains. The Jamaica train station is one block further, serviced by the Long Island Railroad. All this culminates in a transit-rich area for future tenants. ASM Development is behind the applications.
The 35-foot tall structure will yield 6,000 square feet for residential use. Eight apartments will be created, averaging 750 square feet apiece, indicating rentals. Two of the residences will be duplexes. Accessory uses will be included in the cellar.
Queens-based AA Building & Inspection Services will be responsible for the design. Myanmar-based Zeya Engineering is also listed as being involved with the design.
Demolition permits for the existing structure were filed in January 2018. The estimated completion date has not been announced.
