Flushing welcomes new 7-story mixed-use tower
A new seven-story tower is coming to Flushing and the corresponding permits have already been filed. The building will be classified as mixed-use and will be addressed at 144-74 Northern Boulevard, just seven blocks away from the Murray Hill Train Station. This station is important for the area because it is serviced by the Port Washington Line on the Long Island Railroad. Another important station is close by, too: the Main Street Subway Station, where the 7 train ends in the borough of Queens. The development will be handled by Sky View Northern Companies and the design by Ismael Leyva Architects.
Nowadays, the lot is not vacant. The new building will replace a retail area that includes four retail spaces, a community facility and a drive-thru Burger King. The tower will be 74 feet tall and will span over 160k square feet. As we mentioned, the building will be mixed-use, so 69,140 square feet will be destined to residential use while almost 20k square fee will be dedicated to a commercial area. A community facility will be also put in place and it will span 16,500 square feet.
There will be 100 residential units in the building. They will average 691 square feet, which may be a good indicator of rentals. There will be a mailroom in the lobby and a recreational area on the second floor. Tenants will be able to access both, as well as a rooftop terrace. Furthermore, there will be an underground parking area that will be able to hold 172 vehicles.
There is no estimated completion date as of yet. [NY Yimby]
