Permits Filed for 4-Story Building on 5th Street in Long Island City

Dec. 14, 2020 By Michael Dorgan

Building permits have been filed for a 4-story mixed-use building on 5th Street in Hunters Point.

The plans filed with the Department of Buildings Nov. 30 call for a 65-foot-tall structure to go up 5-01 47th Rd. The site is on the corner of 5th Street and 47th Road and is adjacent to Kitchen Plus More and a block away from Foodcellar.

The building will contain nine apartments and will take up nearly 8,400 square feet. There will be two units on each floor from 1 through 4 with a penthouse on the upper floor.

There will be a commercial space located in the cellar. The plans do not include space for parking.

Demolition permits were filed in August.

Stephen Sloop, operating under Stephen Sloop Trust, is listed as the owner while Zproekt is listed as the architect.

H e l l NO!! THIS BS HAS TO END!!!!!!


I agree. But it will end soon because as Cuomo and DeBlasio continue their reign of terror and error, NYC will be so ruined that nobody will want to build anything new.


Air and light, please. Basement commercial space? Ahem. This will morph into a two story “basement.” The whole affair is too tall. The site is opposite a drugstore and high rise and caddy corner from the garage of another monster. All jammed on a one lane road. Yes. One.
The rest of the area would like sun, please. Going East on that and the adjacent block eastwards, true low rises. Neighbors can look up the address to check on plans.
