Property owner Wai Li has filed applications for a four-story, 7,810-square-foot commercial building at 131-34 41st Avenue, in Downtown Flushing, located six blocks from the Main Street stop on the 7 train. The new building will boast 7,360 square feet of commercial space and will have warehouse space on the ground floor, office space on the second and third floors, and a “caretaker apartment” on the fourth floor. Flushing-based John C. Chen Architect PLLC. is the architect of record. The project would rise on a 45-foot-wide lot which is currently occupied by a two-story auto shop business. Demolition permits have not been filed yet to knock it down.
Last week, sales for the second tower at The Grand at Sky View Parc launched with $85 million worth of contracts, according to Curbed.

Wang Chun Hua, as Z & W of New York LLC, has filed permits for a new seven-story, 30-unit mixed-use building at 139-20 34th Avenue in Flushing. That’s between Leavitt Street and Union Street, about a 15-minute walk from the 7 train at Main St. The 69-foot-tall project would cover 27,611 square feet with residential square footage of 19,936. That means units averaging about 665 square feet. There would be five units each from the second to the seventh floor. The first floor would have 7,675 square feet of community facility space for a day care for ages two to six. There would also be parking for 20 cars and 15 bicycles. Cheng-Yang Lee is the applicant of record. Demolition permits were issued earlier this year for the two-story house occupying the site.

Mar Mar Realty is placing their 37,000 square-foot bowling ally at 30-05 Whitestone Expressway, in Flushing, on the market as a development site for $60 million, according to Commercial Observer. The site measures 80,000 square feet and is currently zoned for manufacturing, but the owner is seeking a rezoning of the property to allow for a 386,000 square-foot mixed-use development, with commercial and residential uses. Cushman & Wakefield is marketing the property, and the rezoning could possibly take a year to secure.
