Nov. 16, 2017 By Tara Law

A 6 -story apartment building is likely to replace a Tudor-style house in Kew Gardens.

Permits have been filed for a 23-unit residential building at 83-68 117th Street, where a one-story house that was built in 1899 is located.

The first floor will feature a lobby, a recreational area and a laundry room. Each floor from floors 2 through 4 will contain five residential units, and floors 5 and 6, will have four units per floor.

The building will contain three parking spaces.

The property is located less than two blocks away from Forest Park, and about six blocks from the 121st Street Station with connections to the J and Z lines.

The site is owned by Mauro Tummolo M.B., and the new building has been designed by Mansouri Architect PC.

A demolition permit has not yet been filed.

JUST MAKE SURE THAT MAYOR DIBLASIO AND SOME GREEDY DEVELOPER DON’T STICK YOU WITH A COMMUNITY HOMELESS SHELTER IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD.

Everything about this is wrong, greedy and harmful!!
3 parking spaces for 23 units, in an already congested area? Why not give up a little bit of your profit and created a basement level garage for the MINIMUM 30 spots it will need!!
Why are permit’s being allowed to create another multiple dwelling where one did not exist before, continuing the greedy and uncaring actions of developers who won’t have to live there, yet causing additional congestion on streets, roads, subways, etc???? Where are our representatives? Newly elected Boro President Katz, Councilwoman Koslowitz, Mayor DiBlasio??? Seems to me you are looking out for your contrI button donating developer friends over the quality of life needs of your constituents, AND IT STINKS!!!!
