Building permits have been filed for a 4-story residential building in Forest Hills where a house constructed in 1910 is currently located.
The development, planned for 75-42 Grand Central Parkway, will feature eight apartment units. The building will offer 7,106 square feet of space.
The property, which is owned by developer George Baharestani, was sold for $1.2 million in June. Demolition permits for the house have not yet been filed.
A laundry and a recreational area will be located in the cellar of the new building, and a residential lobby will be on the first floor.
Two apartments will be located on each floor, with the two apartments on the fourth floor offering a duplex.
The property is adjacent to Flushing Meadows-Corona Park and four blocks from the 75th Ave E/F subway station.
At least it’s not going to be some crazy 40-floor skyscraper, shelter or jail.
Can’t happen fast enough. That vinyl siding looks terrible.
Queens is too crowded already. Who’s going to move in? Russians on Section 8 housing who get free food stamps, medical and everything else that U.S. taxpayers pay for but have to fight to get – especially the elderly who have earned it?
@ Sara Ross,
If not them, it could be undocumented immigrants who will pay their rent in cash.
