The development of Hunters Point continues, with reports that a new condo building is going up adjacent to MoMA PS1, at 11-51 47th Avenue.
The property, based on its rendering, will be a 54-unit condo, according to New York YIMBY. The development will be 70,000 square feet and designed by Fogarty Finger.
Fogarty Finger designed Five27, the 27-unit condo located at 5-27 51st Avenue, which sold out last month.
The news of this project comes a day after Community Board 2 gave its blessing to a developer who seeks a zoning change at 11-55 49th Avenue.
The new zoning would allow Maddd Equities, the developer, to construct a 12 story, 140 unit rental building (28 to be affordable) on that site.
However, the application for a zoning change still needs to go before the Queens Borough President, the City Planning Commission and the City Council.
