In the final days of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for a four-story, nine-unit mixed-use project at 94-47 – 94-49 Alstyne Avenue, in eastern Elmhurst, but plans have changed now that a new developer is in control, Jian Yun Lui’s Forever Estate, LLC. New filings call for two multi-family residential buildings, each standing three stories and containing three units. The units will spread across 6,248 square feet of residential space, which translates into the average unit measuring 1,041 square feet. Chang Hwa Tan’s Tan Architect is the applicant of record, and permits were filed this past September to demolish the existing two-story house.
