Ampiera Group’s eight-story, 36-unit mixed-use project under construction at 24-12 42nd Road is now six stories above street level, as seen in photos taken last Friday by JC_Heights and posted to the YIMBY Forums. The structure will eventually encompass 49,050 square feet. It will include 4,328 square feet of ground-floor retail space and will host condominium units averaging 817 square feet apiece. Amenities will include private residential storage units, bicycle storage space, outdoor space on the second floor, and a rooftop terrace. John K. Yung’s Flushing-based MY Architect is behind the design. In April, the structure was having its ground floor poured and had risen five stories in height. The structure can be expected to top out later this summer, with occupancy probably coming for sometime in late 2016 or early 2017.
Flushing-based property owner Tar Wook Chang, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a two-story, three-unit mixed-use building at 162-17 46th Avenue, in East Flushing. The structure will measure 10,824 square feet. It will contain 3,150 square feet of office space on the ground floor, followed by three residential units on the second floor. The apartments should average 1,050 square feet apiece, indicative of family-sized configurations. There will also be a billiard parlor in the cellar level, storage space, and three off-street parking spots. Iljoong Kim’s Flushing-based Choi Design is the architect of record. The 6,000-square-foot site, located on the corner of 163rd Street, is currently occupied by a two-and-a-half-story wood-framed structure. The Long Island Rail Road’s Broadway station is located five blocks to the north.
Another day, another new residential building planned in Long Island City. Last week we spotted plans for a nine-story development at 42-22 Crescent Street, between 42nd Road and the Queensboro Bridge approach.
Foundation work is now underway on the site of a long-stalled-out hotel development at 36-18 Main Street, in Downtown Flushing. YIMBY can bring you news of the construction thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums by JC_Heights. Building permits for the project, which date back to 2004, detail plans for a two-tower, 12-story multi-use commercial complex that encompasses 290,195 square feet. Commercial-retail space will be located on the ground through forth floors in a common podium. One of the towers will contain a 148-key Hotel Indigo on the fifth through 11th floors. The other tower will feature medical offices on the fifth through 11th floors. The complex will also feature restaurants on the third and 12th floors. It will be served by a 345-car underground garage and have storage for 31 bikes. JWC Architect Engineer is the architect of record, while CMA Landmark Associates is developing. Completion is expected in 2018, per a Queens Courier update from 2014.
A rendering has been posted on the site of the planned six-story, five-unit mixed-use redevelopment at 242 Elizabeth Street, in NoLIta. The black-and-white rendering comes as Ervolino Group begins construction to expand the site’s existing single-story commercial building, Bowery Boogie reported. The latest buildings permits indicate the project will measure 7,667 square feet, with 1,795 square feet of commercial-retail space planned on the ground floor, which will be leased to City Gym. Each floor above will contain a single residential unit, although the top unit, a duplex penthouse, will also contain space on an upper penthouse level. The apartments should average 1,174 square feet apiece, and a Crain’s report from 2014 states that the apartments will be luxury rentals. Amenities include private residential storage units and bicycle storage. Nabil Ishac’s Midtown South-based Ishac Design Architects is the architect of record. Completion can probably be expected closer to 2017.
