A small building located at 11-51 47th Ave. is about to be demolished to make way for an 11 story condo complex.

An application filed with the Department of Buildings to raze the structure was approved Tuesday.

The small building will be replaced by a 54 unit condo development. Half the units will be one-bedrooms and the remainder being two and three bedroom units. There will be about 1,280 square feet of ground floor retail space.

The building will sit at the intersection of 21st Street, 47th Avenue and Jackson Avenue. It will be developed by Charney Construction & Development and Ascent Developments—two Long Island City firms.

The development will include an enclosed lot on the corner, with 22 spots.

Fogarty Finger Architecture designed the building, according to Department of Buildings application.

Nice!

I am psyched for them! This is a pretty ugly corner that could use some cleaning up, nice to see 21st street getting some love and development.
