New commercial tower to change Jamaica’s skyline

Another huge commercial building is coming to Jamaica, Queens. Permits have been filed for a tower with four stories located at 222-25 Jamaica Avenue, mere blocks away from the Queens Village LIRR Station. From Manhattan, there will only be an hour-long commute. This will be an interesting addition to the Queens neighborhood, known for its picket-fence yards.

According to documents submitted thus far, the building will be 56 feet tall. The developer will be Paramjit Kaur and the building will span 51,200 square feet. 32,200 of that amount will be destined to retail and commercial space on the first floor, whereas a little over 19,000 square feet will be used for a medical facility on the second, third and fourth floors. On the cellar, developers will build 79 parking spaces. Even though an estimated completion date has not been announced, Baobab Architects P.C. was named as the company behind the design. [NY Yimby]
