Property owner Zhen Zun Li has filed applications for two three-story, three-unit residential buildings at 74-31 – 74-33 44th Avenue, in Elmhurst, four blocks south of subway stops on the E, F, M, R, and 7 trains and caught at the intersection of Broadway and Roosevelt Avenue. Each structure will measure 4,146 square feet in total, and there will be 6,270 square feet of residential space across both buildings. That means full-floor units will average 1,045 square feet apiece. Chang Hwa Tan’s Flushing-based Tan Architect is the applicant of record. Demolition permits were filed last October to raze the existing three-and-a-half-story wood-frame house.
Queens Boulevard in Elmhurst has become the center of the neighborhood’s construction boom, as developers try to cater to the growing immigrant communities in eastern Queens. And one developer has filed plans for a 10-story residential building with retail and community facilities at 70-40 45th Avenue, just off the major 12-lane artery.
Property owner Ming Ching Cheung has filed an application for a three-story, four-unit residential building at 85-18 57th Road, in Elmhurst, located four blocks from the Woodhaven Boulevard stop on the M and R trains. The structure will measure 5,372 square feet in total and there will be 3,789 square feet of residential space. The units will average 1,263 square feet apiece, meaning the building will probably contain condominiums. Sugnam Chang’s Brooklyn-based Basic Groups Corp. is the architect of record. An existing two-story brick rowhouse must first be demolished.
Elmhurst-based Song Lin has filed applications for ten four-story, three-unit residential buildings at 85-08 – 85-20 57th Avenue and 84-71 – 84-77 57th Road, in Elmhurst, five blocks from the Woodhaven Boulevard stop on the M and R trains. The buildings, which will vary in size, will be built on a block-thru lot at the current site of the New York Bethzatha Church. Six of them will have 3,995 square feet of residential space each, which means their units will average 1,332 square feet apiece. Two other buildings will measure 3,979 square feet, one will have 4,698 square feet and the final building will total 6,237 square feet. The units in the largest building would average 2,079 square feet, so condominiums are more than likely in the works. Chang Hwa Tan’s Flushing-based Tan Architect is the architect of record. Demolition permits were filed to remove the church in November.
