Plans have been filed to demolish a small commercial building in Hunters Point, between Vernon Boulevard and 11th Street, with a new development at the site likely.

Demolition plans were filed two days ago for the two-story, unassuming building at 10-28 47 Ave., home to the offices of Commercial Electrical Contractors, Inc.

The plans were filed by CEC itself, which owns the property, according to city records.

The business also owns the small parking lot adjacent to the building, which has its own address of 10-32 47 Ave.

Development plans for the building and parking lot sites remain unclear. No new building plans have been submitted, and CEC was unable to be reached for comment.

But a listing on City Realty, however, points to plans for a four-story, 10-unit condominium building at the site.

A rendering included in the listing shows a sleek building with red and black paneling.

Alas, a building that brings me back to puking on mushrooms.
This is queens, not williamsboringugh.


It’s a business, with employees. Now they will leave our community, find another spot, again be upended, leave, etc. All the shallow commentary I read about the new building leaves out of consciousness, job loss, dislocation, and the integrity of our community. We are not bedrooms, rents. We are also skilled working men and women, and that Long island City works.


Great news! The existing building is an eyesore. Tear it down! Only downside is will it be filled w Amazon dbags?


Oh man, that is ugly. They should put the 1/2 million dollar insider job pink bubble gum statue in front of that thing.


Just what we need another LUXURY CONDO!!!!!! Now you why there is NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING. PROBLEM SOLVED.

Queens Public Library hosts conversation with Astoria author on borough history

Borough history geeks will want to mark Tuesday, April 4, on their calendars for the Queens Public Library’s Queens Memory Project online talk with Astoria author Rebecca Bratspies. The processor at CUNY Law in Long Island City will discuss her new book, “Naming Gotham: The Villains, Rogues and Heroes Behind New York’s Place Names,” and take a deep dive into the lives of the people for whom many Queens places are named, some of which have become synonymous with congestion, recreation or culture.

“Queens is the most diverse place on the planet. That diversity is our greatest strength. Our patchwork of unique neighborhoods has welcomed successive waves of immigrants, each adding incredible foods and traditions to our vibrant civic life,” Bratspies said. “Yet it is striking how few of the names that grace Queens’ major infrastructure actually reflect that diversity. By tracing the lives of the people whose names have become New York’s urban shorthand for congestion, recreation, and infrastructure, Naming Gotham offers readers an accessible way to understand the complexity of multiracial, multicultural New York City.”
