New Hui Chen mixed-use project coming to Queens
The site addressed at 136-78 41st Avenue was purchased last December by developer Hui Chen for $9.32 million. Even though the corresponding permits have not been filed yet, the first rendering of the project has already been released. The design was decided by Raymond Chan Architect, PC. As far as reports said, the building will be destined to mixed-use, will span almost 70,000 square feet and the church next door, St. Michael’s Catholic Church will be included in the structure.
In addition to the community area, 65 residential units will be build. Even though specifics have not been released, the community’s preferences and the size of the building itself, may indicate the units will be condos rather than rentals. The exterior will be made of glass and combined with a grey brick. Furthermore, the front will have interspersed balconies. The fact the new building will be mixed-use will be an improvement n tto the site’s current condition.
Developers still need to file for the corresponding permits in order to tear down the existing structures. A completion date has not been released yet. [NY Yimby]
