Plans have been filed for an 8-story mixed-use building in Forest Hills.
The planned 75 foot building would be located at 105-31 65 Road, and contain 37 dwelling units. The structure will be replacing four brick multi-family buildings that were built in the 1940s.
The new building would contain a 5,044 community facility as well as an enclosed parking area with 11 spaces. The complex will allot 25,962 square feet for residential space and have a 30 foot long backyard.
Records show the property was purchased by current owner, listed as Herkimer Ventures LLC, for $1.2 million in June 2017.
The property is just three blocks away from the 67 Avenue M and R trains.
The listed owner, Neriya Borukhov of Herkimer Ventures LLC, did not have a set date for the start of demolition or construction.
“It’s not going to happen today or tomorrow. It’s a very time consuming project,” Borukhov said.
Demolition permits have not yet been filed for this project.
This planned building marks a pattern being seen for the redevelopment of this Forest Hills block. Plans for another 8-story mixed-use building, located next door at 105-25 65th Road, were filed by a different owner and developer in March 2018.
This building will have 18 residential units with a recreational space on the roof.
Demolition permits for that building were filed in February 2018.
