Proposals submitted to New York City’s Department of City Planning (DCP) reveal two buildings planned for development in Little Neck, Queens. Located at 43-80 Douglaston Parkway and 241-15 Northern Blvd, the projects would require local zoning amendments to floor area requirements, height and building use type restrictions for construction to proceed.
If approved, the plans are expected to wrap up in 2020. Dual property owners are listed as 241-15 Northern, LLC and North Shore Realty Group.
The northernmost development site at 43-80 Douglaston Parkway will contain 10 market rate units and 14 affordable senior housing units. The structure will also contain two sub-grade parking spots. In total, the eight-story building will comprise 51,128 square feet.
The second development site at 241-15 Northern Boulevard will top-out at five stories with both residential and commercial components. The property will offer 39 market rate residences with an additional 20 units also dedicated to affordable senior living. Ground floor areas will contain a restaurant with nearly 12,700 square feet of functional area. Two levels of below-grade area will contain 89 parking spaces.
Developers have also proposed a third construction that would appear to involve a vertical expansion of an existing residential building from 8 to 9 stories. Considering the limited scope of work on this third development site, greater details were excluded from the most recent DCP filings.
