New 8 story mixed-use tower coming to Flushing
Even though the name was not disclosed, we can say an LLC filed permits for an eight-story mixed-use building in Flushing, Queens. The lot is addressed at 136-23 41st Avenue, in the very center of the commercial area of the neighborhood. There are many malls and restaurants surrounding the site. Furthermore, many Queens’ attractions are near, too: the Queens Botanical Garden, the Queens Museum and Citi Field to name a few. This site is also well-connected when it comes to public transportation: there is only a block between this site and the last stop for 7 trains at Main Street Station.
Overall, the structure will encompass 18,900 square feet, but 1,200 of those will be used to install an ambulatory treatment facility. 11,400 square feet will be destined to retail and a transient hotel, while the remaining 6,300 square feet will be used to install apartment rooms in the hotel.
Below ground, developers will include a community facility and commercial space. The medical space will be on the ground level, with some retail space too. On the ground level there will also be the lobby and reception for hotel guests. From the second to the fifth floor there will be thirty rooms for transient guests, while from the sixth to the eighth floor the developers will build six hotel residences. These units will average at 1,050 square feet each.
The design was assigned to Tan Architects, while the demolition permits have already been filed, back in September. Nevertheless, an estimated completion date has not been announced. [NY Yimby]
