Initial building applications were filed back in the spring for 148-31 90th Avenue, in Jamaica, Queens, and now, slightly revised permits have been pulled with the DOB, this time using the address 148-29 90th Avenue. The total construction area will measure just over 100,000 square feet, and within that, there will be 69,789 square feet of residential space, divided amongst 90 units. There will also be a 45-car parking garage in the cellar, which will also include room for 45 bicycles. Raymond Chan Architects is the architect of record, while George Xu’s 90 Ave Realty LLC is listed as the developer. Demolition permits for the existing structure have already been filed, and construction should soon begin.
Century Development Group
Late last year, Century Development Group signed an agreement with Starwood Hotels & Resorts to bring a 250-key Westin hotel to the mixed-use project planned at 137-61 Northern Boulevard, located on the corner of Leavitt Street in downtown Flushing. Century told The Real Deal that the latest development plans call for a 12- or 13-story building, which, in addition to the hotel, would also include 50 residential units.
While the towers rising by the Hunters Point waterfront and around Queens Plaza and Court Square command attention of Long Island City real estate watchers, a number of smaller-scale, residential projects are steadily rising along the quiet, rowhouse blocks between the two development hotspots. In our April 2014 interview, Sam Charney, who is currently developing The Jackson a few blocks to the south, referred to the neighborhood as Hunters Point East. One of such projects is the six-story, 24-unit [email protected] Murray Park South at 11-30 45th Road. Its concrete shell and metal-framed bulkhead have reached their highest point, and the structure awaits curtain wall installation. The building is developed by the Century Development Group and designed by architect Raymond Chan, who is credited with a handful of projects scattered around the neighborhood. Triborough Construction Services Inc. is the general contractor.
In February, foundation work was underway for the six-story, 24-unit residential building at 11-30 45th Road, in the Hunters Point section of Long Island City. Now, construction is up to the third floor of the project, according to The Court Square Blog. The structure will measure 31,729 square feet, with residential units averaging 931 square feet apiece. The apartments could either be large rentals or good-sized condominiums. Amenities include a 14-car parking garage on the ground floor and a rooftop recreational enclosure featuring outdoor space. Century Development Group is the developer, while Flushing-based Raymond Chan Architect is behind the design. Completion is expected in mid-2017.
In the summer of 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of the six-story, 24-unit residential building planned at 11-30 45th Road, in the Hunters Point section of Long Island City. Building applications were filed in December of that year and we last reported that excavation equipment arrived on site in October of 2015. The Court Square Blog now reports foundation work is underway. The new building will encompass 31,729 square feet and apartment units will average 931 square feet apiece. There will be 14 parking spaces on the ground floor and the structure will be topped by a penthouse for tenants’ recreational use. Century Development Group is developing the project and Flushing-based Raymond Chan is designing it. Completion is anticipated for the summer of 2017.
