Permits Filed for 89-28 138th Place, Jamaica, Queens

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.
