Last year, YIMBY reported on filings for a 48-unit mixed-use development — broken up into eight small buildings — at 32-35 Linden Place, in downtown Flushing, but now the developers, Latimer & Linden Management Corp., have filed for a single structure. A seven-story, 49-unit building is now planned, and 11,187 square feet of heath care facilities will take up the ground and second floors. The residential units, averaging 672 square feet each, will take up floors three through seven. Peter Casini is the new architect of record. The site’s single-story predecessor was demolished in 2008.
