Demolition Plans Filed to Raze Brick Building On Jackson Avenue

27-55 Jackson Ave. (Google)

Feb. 6, 2019 By Christian Murray

A prominent three-story brick building on the corner of Jackson Avenue and 42nd Road is about to be demolished.

Nissim Seliktar, the owner of the property, filed plans with the Department of Buildings Tuesday to demolish the 27-55 Jackson Ave. structure. The corner building, completed in 1931, also includes 28-24 42nd Road.

Seliktar purchased the 14,000 square foot building for $2.95 million on Jan. 31, 2012. He has yet to file building plans and could not be reached for comment.

The property was occupied in part by Uber until 2016. Uber relocated that year to the Falchi Building at 31-00 47th Ave.

This section of Jackson Avenue has undergone a great deal of development in recent years.

Aloft Hotel, the 18-story structure with 176 rooms, opened in November 2016 at 27-45 Jackson Ave. Meanwhile, a 13-story building is going up at 27-51 Jackson Ave, the adjacent lot.

It won’t stop until every single building is converted to a super-tall luxury condo building. Is this what you all really want?!? (Brokers and developers need not respond)
