8-Story Apartment Building Planned for 65th Road in Forest Hills

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.

This type of venture will probably increase real estate values to the surrounding properties. Either way, there’s always Florida! )

Not if it’s a low-income operation.
And given this Mayor that is probably exactly what it is, plus a bonus homeless shelter.

This is not progress…its, ignorance and greed. Too bad city officials have no desire to keep the area beautiful and livable.

Why are you pushing people out of their homes? This is not fair. Gentrification right infront of your face! You should find a spot with land and build your building their and not displace people.

Packing even more people into an area with aging, maxed-out transportation.
What could possibly go wrong?

This area is going to the dumps. Young kids with last names invariably ending with ‘Ov’ or some ‘Baev’ are arrogantly taking over by storm. Wannabe business people!

Sure. Real business people with Ivy League school degrees. C’mon, we all know what’s going on here. Smuggling gold and diamonds in their teeth, coming to America, getting the EBT card and using it to shop steak! Yeah, outstanding community members.

Is there any reason to believe that, or you’re just your run-of-the-mill racist Trump Lover?

This type of venture will probably lower real estate values to the surrounding properties. ITs setting a bad precedent for the people who live in the area.
