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.
So let’s just complete the ruination of the neighborhood. Little cherry on top.
Thank God, someone is building something that looks decent.
Thank god, another one.
