2-Story Commercial Building in Hunters Point to Be Demolished, Development Likely

10-28 47th Ave. (center). Via NYC ZoLa

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.
