Forest Hills-based Platinum Realty has acquired the two-story commercial building at 115-06 Myrtle Avenue, located on the corner of 115th Street in Richmond Hill, for $3.7 million, Commercial Observer reported. The sale comes after the previous owners began marketing the site, which consists of four parcels, back in November of 2015. The site could accommodate a mixed-use project, with commercial and residential space, of up to 26,524 square feet, as-of-right. A new development could grow to 70,000 square feet if it includes affordable residential units and benefits from the inclusionary housing zoning bonus. The new owner’s plans have not been disclosed. All of the parcels are vacant or have been vacated.
Queens-based property owner Mohammed K. Assim has filed applications for a three-story, two-unit residential building at 97-16 124th Street, in Richmond Hill. The structure will measure a relatively large 5,972 square feet. One of the units will span across the ground and second floors, followed by the second unit on the third floor. Based on the amount of residential space the property will have, units with family-sized configurations are surely in the works. Jose A. Velasquez’s South Ozone Park-based architectural firm is the architect of record. The 40-foot-wide, 4,570-square-foot lot is currently occupied by a two-and-a-half-story, wood-frame building. Demolition permits haven’t been filed. The Lefferts Boulevard Station on the A train is seven blocks away.
