Local developer Pi Capital Partners has revealed the first rendering of a seven-story mixed-use building at 86-15 Queens Boulevard in Elmhurst, Queens. Designed by Raymond Chan Architect, the property is expected to comprise 132,313 square feet.
The residential component will occupy the majority of the building and span about 86,250 square feet. This will include 142 rental apartments averaging 607 square feet apiece. Additional components include 19,442 square feet of community facilities and 6,987 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.
The rendering shows an orthodox design with a light cementitious curtain wall and orderly grid of large windows. A setback above the sixth floor makes way for what appears to be private terraces, and a number of balconies are positioned along the main elevation.
Permits submitted to the Department of Buildings also specify the construction of a parking structure designed to accommodate up to 82 vehicles. The permits, however, do not specify if the commercial component will be activated by ground-floor retail or office space. It is also unclear if the building will include any residential amenities.
Demolition permits have not been filed yet for the office building on the site. An estimated completion date has not been announced.
