Permits have been filed for a six-story building for the Chinese Christian Herald Crusade, a Queens-based social service organization. The religious immigrant outreach firm will be creating a center at 132-62 Pople Avenue in Flushing, Queens. The firm purchased the location from developers Lux Pople LLC in May 2017 for $1.6 million.
The site is seven blocks away from the Flushing-Main Street train station, serviced by the LIRR, and eight blocks away from Main Street, serviced by the 7 trains.
The 74-foot tall structure will yield 11,790 square feet for residential use, with unspecified remaining space dedicated to a two-story house of worship facility. 23 living units will be created, averaging 512 square feet apiece. Because of the connection with the religious facility, the use of space for living purposes is without restriction.
AJR Architecture will be responsible for the development.
Demolition permits for the existing two-story structure were filed in late July of this year. The estimated completion date has not been announced.
