Elmhurst’s development boom is expanding westward into Maspeth. We have a look at a four-story commercial and medical office building headed to 54-08 74th Street, in the industrial borderlands between Maspeth and Elmhurst.
Grand Centurion Construction
Flushing-based leasee Grand Centurion Construction has filed application for a four-story, 28,231-square-foot multi-use commercial building at 54-08 74th Street, in eastern Maspeth, located three quarters of a mile from the Grand Av-Newtown stop on the M/R trains. The structure will feature 7,903 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The second through fourth floors will contain 11,044 square feet of medical space. The project will include a 2,200 square-foot parking garage in the cellar. Maspeth-based Architects Studio is the architect of record. The 7,903-square-foot lot, at the corner of Grand Street, is currently occupied by a single-story auto-service business. Demolition permits have not yet been filed.
Grand Centurion Construction has filed applications for a three-story, three-unit apartment hotel at 50-34 69th Street, in Maspeth, located nine blocks south of the 7 train’s stop at 69th Street and Roosevelt Avenue. The building will operate like an extended-stay hotel but will have contract-free “residential-like” units averaging a spacious 1,472 square feet apiece. Maspeth-based Angelo Ng + Anthony Ng Architects Studio is the architect of record, and permits were filed to demolished an existing single-story house late last year.
