Back in December of 2016, developer Hui Chen acquired 136-78 41st Avenue, in Flushing, for $9.32 million. While DOB applications have yet to be filed for the site, today, YIMBY has the first rendering for the project, which is being designed by Raymond Chan Architect, PC.

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.
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.
Construction is three stories above street level on the eight-story, 83-unit residential building under development at 14-07 Broadway, located on the corner of 14th Street western Astoria. Progress on construction can be seen thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the project, dubbed The Baron, will encompass 107,488 square feet and rise 80 feet above street level, not including bulkhead elements. The condominium residential units should average 878 square feet apiece. Lions Group is the developer and Raymond Chan’s Flushing-based architecture firm is responsible for the design. An anticipated completion date is unknown, but late 2017 seems reasonable.
A 15-story, 338-key hotel is quietly rising above street level at 148-18 Archer Avenue, in downtown Jamaica, and a rendering of the project has been spotted on the construction fence. The latest building permits indicate the project will eventually encompass 202,314 square feet and rise 170 feet above street level to its roof. It will be home to a 224-key Courtyard Inn on the second through 10th floors and a 114-key Fairfield Inn and Suites on the 11th through 15th floors. Guest amenities will be located on the ground and cellar levels. An anonymous Flushing-based LLC is the developer and Raymond Chan’s Flushing-based firm is behind the architecture. Completion is slated for early 2019.
