Nearly a year ago, applications were filed for a nine-story, 32-unit residential building at 42-50 27th Street, in Long Island City, and now those plans have been approved, with demolition underway to remove the existing two-story structure, per The Court Square Blog. The new building will measure 24,860 square feet, which works out to an average unit of 775 square feet. Ampiera Group is developing, and Jon K Yung’s Flushing-based MY Architect is the applicant of record.
Last December, YIMBY posted applications for Lions Group’s eight-story, 15-unit residential building at 42-83 Hunter Street, in Long Island City, and now The Court Square Blog has spotted on-site renderings of the project. The building will measure 12,335 square feet, which means units will average roughly 820 square feet. Jon Yung’s My Architect is the architect of record, and the site’s former single-story building has been removed. Excavation appears imminent, and completion is slated for Spring 2017.
As the Asian population grows in Elmhurst, developers in nearby Flushing have begun to cater to the neighborhood’s burgeoning Chinatown along Broadway. Right next to Queens Place Mall at 88-08 Justice Avenue, one builder has filed plans for a 20-story apartment building with community space on the lower floors.
YIMBY has the first look at yet another tower set to rise in Long Island City, and this time it’s a 13-story rental building planned for 41-18 24th Street, between 41st Avenue and the Queensboro Bridge approach.
