Eight-Story, 97-Unit Residential Building Filed At 89-07 148th Street, Jamaica

Four detached wood-frame houses near downtown Jamaica may bite the dust for a sizable residential building. Plans were filed last week to erect eight stories of apartments on the site where the houses currently stand, at 89-07 148th Street. The 74-foot-tall development would rise between 89th and 90th Avenues, a block west of Rufus King Park and across the street from the monolithic Queens Civil Court building. The building would have 97 apartments squeezed into 64,509 square feet of residential space, for average units measuring a rental-sized 665 square feet.
