September 25, by Nathaly Pesantez

A new building may be added to the lineup of construction in the Hunters Point neighborhood, as building records show an application for the building of a 12-story mixed-use building on Jackson Avenue.

The proposed building at the site of 10-27 Jackson Ave. will reach a height of 120 feet, where 50 units will take up 33,851 square-feet of space, and 959 square-feet will be reserved for a retail shop on the first floor. Floors four through eight will have seven apartments each, while floors nine through 10 will house five. The 11th floor will hold four apartments and a lower half of a duplex apartment—the 12th floor will house the upper half.

A gym and gym terrace are included in the top floor along with enclosed parking on the third floor.

The Manhattan based Studio V Architecture, whose major projects include creating master plans for the Hallets Point and Astoria Cove developments, is the firm in charge of the new building’s design.

Plans to demolish the current two-story building were approved back in March. Buildings records also show a failed pre-demolition inspection dated Sept. 8.

Although the application for the new 12-story building has only gone through the processing stage, plans for foundation, structural, plumbing, and mechanical work were filed on the same day, with statuses currently pending.
