Sept. 17, 2015 Staff Report
Building plans have been filed for a seven story building to go up on the corner of Vernon Blvd and 46th Avenue.
The plans call for a 70-foot tall building that would consist of 24 apartments on top of 7,200 square feet of retail space.
The commercial/retail space will be on the ground floor. There will be four units on each floor—from floors two through seven.
The development includes a garage beneath the building that will have parking for 12 cars, the minimum number for 24 units. There will be a roof deck and 12 bike storage spots.
The developer is Rocco Tomassetti, who owns Empire Transit Mix, a concrete manufacturing firm based out of Brooklyn. He has hired Philip Toscano as the architect.
Absolutely what this neighborhood needs – another condo
1 stop from Grand Central, yes, this place needs more condos. I know a lot of older people from the hood don’t like the change but this is what happens in NYC. Neighborhoods change all the time. What’s amazing is how long it took for LIC to change.
There may be more room to build but is there more room to share subways? And I thought there was a height limit to what could go up on Vernon?
So where will the NY blood center park their blood mobiles and vans which appear to be parked there now?
north east corner of 46th ave – across the ave from LIC bar
Oh good, that corner is a bit of an eyesore.
I think it is the opposite corner from the photograph
That is the right corner. The big ugly green building next to LIC bar is also being developed but that will be 30 or so stories. LIC still has lots of space for new construction but I think the luxury apartment market is finally saturated and will slow down for a while.
