Big boy

June 1, 2015 Staff Report

Plans have been filed for a 14-story, 48-unit residential building to go up at 45-24 Vernon Blvd, according to Department of Building records.

The site is currently a one-story manufacturing facility located on the same block as the beaten–up old Paragon Paint building.

The owner has yet to file plans to demolish the existing 12,000 square foot building.

The development will be 52,000 square feet with roughly 4,570-square-feet to be used for ground floor retail. The remainder will be for residential use.

It is unknown if the apartments will be rentals or condos.

14 story only! Amazing I would think it would be 40 and up! (Sarcastic comment here)


I thought Vernon wasn’t zoned for buildings this tall. Can someone please explain how it is indeed zoned if this building is being allowed?


There are grocery stores in the area, it’s also a short train ride to Manhattan if the want other services.

Yet another residential building going up yet barely any space for commercial stuff. Soon enough this neighborhood will be nothing but apartment buildings and the people in them will be wondering where their goods and services are, where their grocery stores and walk-in clinics are, etc.

Would love to hear some news sometime about new businesses or commercial things opening up, instead of yet another overpriced building.


i think that’s why people would rather pay top dollar in Willyburg and Greenpoint than shelve out top dollar in LIC to have virtually nothing to do here.

i don’t even know where there’s some place with a pool table, or somewhere to buy socks

currently i’m working on bringing some new food retail to the area with my clients, but they too see a downside with such high concentration of residential developments and little retail offerings in the area
