4-Story ‘Luxury Condo’ Building Planned on 47th Avenue in Hunters Point

Rendering for upcoming project at 10-32 47th Ave. (Stat Architecture)

March 4, 2019 Staff Report

Months after filing to demolish a small commercial building on 47th Avenue, a developer has at last put forth plans for a four-story “luxury condo” building on site.

Department of Building filings submitted last week call for a 12-unit development at 10-32 47th Ave., where an unassuming two-story building and a small parking lot had been located for decades.

The building on site had been home to the offices of Commercial Electrical Contractors, Inc., which still owns the property and filed for the new building.

The project would span more than 14,700 square feet, and includes features like an exercise room and a private roof terrace for the tenants in the two fourth-floor condos. Units range from one to three bedrooms, and are between 600 and 1,100 square feet.

A rendering for the development designed by Stat Architecture shows a sleek building with red and black paneling on the facade. While some small changes were made to the materials, the building’s concept is largely the same as what is depicted in the rendering, according to Suzanna Tharian, an architect with the firm.

The project appears to have been in the works for some time, with prior plans aiming for a 2020 completion year for the building.

Stat Architect, however, says construction is expected to begin this summer. Demolition, which the developer filed for back in November, has also not started, but will do so “any time now,” the firm said.

Uhh…pretty clearly says that the owner, Commercial Electrical Contractors, which had offices there previously, filed for the permits for the new building. Where are you making up this info about selling to developers from? Current owners realized the value of their property and decided to develop it into something that is more profitable for them than just keeping their offices there. Seems to make sense.

Actually, the project includes the vacant site as well so the rendering is accurate in that respect.

But..but..but…Since Amazons’s not coming, we’re not suppose to get new development. JVB promised I can stay in my rent controlled building paying 1960’s rent. I just can’t understand why an owner would sell to developers. Is it possible that the developer gave a campaign donation to JVB or Gianaris for a 30 year tax abatement…No way…Residential housing doesnt create jobs….By golly me thinks I’ve been duped


Who the hell would want to live in the hell hole hunters point. Call us when you can put affordable housing back in all the neighborhoods like we had years ago not in an area where it is dangerous to live. Who are you all fooling


Not sure what planet you reside on Dee, but the Hunter’s Point I have lived in for 21 years, two blocks from this new development, is very safe.

aren't architects supposed to have attn to detail?

nice rendering, way to take over one additional building space that isn’t part of the deal to make it look bigger. 10-22 is not part of the lot, but the rendering makes it appear that the new building will sit next door to 10-20 which is inaccurate.
