A new building may be added to the lineup of construction in the Hunters Point neighborhood, as building records show an application for the building of a 12-story mixed-use building on Jackson Avenue.
The proposed building at the site of 10-27 Jackson Ave. will reach a height of 120 feet, where 50 units will take up 33,851 square-feet of space, and 959 square-feet will be reserved for a retail shop on the first floor. Floors four through eight will have seven apartments each, while floors nine through 10 will house five. The 11th floor will hold four apartments and a lower half of a duplex apartment—the 12th floor will house the upper half.
A gym and gym terrace are included in the top floor along with enclosed parking on the third floor.
The Manhattan based Studio V Architecture, whose major projects include creating master plans for the Hallets Point and Astoria Cove developments, is the firm in charge of the new building’s design.
Plans to demolish the current two-story building were approved back in March. Buildings records also show a failed pre-demolition inspection dated Sept. 8.
Although the application for the new 12-story building has only gone through the processing stage, plans for foundation, structural, plumbing, and mechanical work were filed on the same day, with statuses currently pending.
On the other hand, I wish I could afford one… Had to listen to my parents when I was young…
Where will these people fit on the trains, streets and roads??? Overkill. As I always say, Just we need another Luxury Condo. Building without planning does not work. Let us Breathe.
Especially at that location. Another 100 or so people added to the crush of the Vernon Jackson station. Except for the addition of the ferry, we have the same mass transit infrastructure that we had 70 years ago.
Stop. Just stop with all the complaining. What exactly is the correct population density for you? You enjoy living close-in to the city but you don’t think anyone else should?
Stop being such a goddamn Pollyanna, “native” (ahem) New Yorker. The correct population density is being able to take the No. 7 without having to wait for three trains and then having someone’s elbow jammed in my back for the ride to Manhattan.
HAHA it will be 25 years before a new tunnel is built so the only alternatives are to reverse commute to Kew Gardens or work the 3rd shift in Manhattan so you can get a seat……. or walk to work at the citibank building or to the NYC HHS building.
The enclosed parking will either be $300+ a mo or reserved for the top floors and the penthouse apt
The reverse commute warrior strikes again. You making minimum wage yet?
In the meantime people will continue to commute to Manhattan. Like Willie Sutton never said, that’s where the money is.
