Permits have been filed for a four-story mixed-use building at 147-12 Roosevelt Avenue, in Murray Hill, Queens. The site is a block and a half away from the Murray Hill train station, serviced by the Long Island Rail Road’s Port Washington line. The Main Street Subway Station is another eight blocks away, which includes the last stop for the 7 train. Restaurants and retail storefronts are plentiful around both transit nodes. Ling Feng International will be responsible for the development.
In August of 2015, YIMBY reported on new building applications for 35-08 146th Street, in Murray Hill, Queens. In January of 2016, we revealed the first renderings for the 15-story project.

Flushing-based Applo Development Group has filed applications for four three-story, three-unit residential buildings at 42-02 – 42-10 164th Street, in Murray Hill, located to the east of Downtown Flushing. They will measure between 3,732 square feet and 3,748 square feet. Across the entire development, the full-floor residential units should average 891 square feet apiece, which could mean either homes or rental apartments are in the works. Each structure will feature a two-car garage. Michael Mastrogiacom’s Rye, N.Y.-based Mastrogiacomo Engineering is the applicant of record. The 7,923-square-foot site, located at the corner of Stanford Avenue, is currently occupied by two two-and-a-half-story houses. Demolition permits were filed in March.
Back in March of 2015, CB Developers, SK Development, and Ironstate Development acquired, for $25.2 million, the three five-story tenement buildings at 587-591 Third Avenue, located between East 38th and 39th streets in Murray Hill. Around that time, the developers filed applications for a 20-story, 74-unit mixed-use building at the site. Now, the team has submitted preliminary applications (called CPS-1 documents, which are associated with marketing) with the state Attorney General’s office for a condominium project, according to The Real Deal. Filings with the Buildings Department describe a 96,166-square-foot building in the works. It will have 4,231 square feet of retail space on the ground and cellar levels, and its residential units should average 972 square feet apiece. Edgar L. Rawlings’ Lower East Side-based Rawlings Architects is the architect of record. Demolition permits were filed for the existing tenements back in 2014.
In August of 2015, YIMBY reported on applications for a 42-story, 550-unit mixed-use building at 685 First Avenue, located between East 39th and 40th streets in Murray Hill. Now, new details and renderings of the building have been revealed by the Wall Street Journal. The 459-foot-tall tower will actually contain 556 residential units and measure a whopping 828,000 square feet in its entirety. Two-thirds of the units will be rental apartments while the remaining one-third will be condominiums. Amenities include an underground 110-car garage, storage for 282 bikes, laundry facilities, a pool, a fitness center, a library, and recreational and assembly rooms. There will also be 10,088 square feet of ground-floor retail. Richard Meier & Partners Architects is behind the design, and Sheldon Solow is the developer. Excavation is reportedly underway, and completion is expected in 2018.
