Permits have been filed for a five-story residential and museum building at 47-11 90th Street, an unusually positioned lot between a row of extant structures and an elevated subway track in Elmhurst, Queens. The Grand Avenue-Newtown subway station is five blocks away, serviced by the E, M, and R trains. Song Liu is listed as behind the applications.
The 55-foot tall structure will yield 88,500 square feet, with 74,160 square feet dedicated to residential use and 5,000 square feet for a ground-floor museum. 80 apartments will be created, averaging 920 square feet apiece, which could be rentals or condominiums. The building will include parking for 30 vehicles and a recreational space on the rooftop.
5D Architecture and Engineering PLLC is listed as responsible for the design.
The lot is currently vacant, meaning construction can start as soon as permits are filed. The estimated completion date has not been announced.
