Work tops out as pipe scaffolding installed at 11-22 45th Road

We last stopped by 11-22 45th Road back in January when foundation work had started on site.1 When we stopped by last week, we saw that construction has topped out on the four-story buildings, and facade work has started. Pipe scaffolding is up on parts of the site, as seen in the photo below.

When all is said and done, there will be a series of four-story, two-family townhouses that overlook Murray Park. The permits, approved on May 26 by the Department of Buildings call for roughly 140,000 square feet of residential space per townhouse with a FAR of 2.80.2

Here are more details on the lot from Queens Brownstoner:3

The developers GDC Properties are planning a townhouse development at 11-22 45th Road (between 11th and 21st Streets), now an industrial warehouse they just purchased for $37,000,000. Demolition permits are already in place, and Commercial Observer reports that the new development should take 18 months to complete.

Signage appears at 27-24 Queens Plaza South, former home of MiQ

Signage has appeared at 27-24 Queens Plaza South, former home of the pop-up shop, Made in Queens.1 The real estate agent for the space is Sarah Cohen from Gotham Realty, and this is the description of the site from their website:2

Queens Plaza is a rapidly evolving residential and commercial hub. At the foot of the Queensboro Bridge, with 8 subway and 12 bus lines, Queens Plaza is one of the busiest transit centers in the city. More than 10,000 people cross Queens Plaza daily. Pedestrian counts are up 40% from 2009. Since the rezoning in 2001, all of LIC has been transformed, but the impact on Queens Plaza and Court Square has been the most significant. Given the highest and best zoning designation, the potential density and proximity to abundant transportation, this existing neighborhood’s potential is extraordinary.

Prime Time Transportation vacates 23-20 Jackson Avenue

In July, The Court Square Blog reported that 23-20 Jackson Avenue had come to market.1 The former tenant there, Prime Time Transportation, vacated the space in late 2016 and has moved to Brooklyn, as seen in signage below.

Two options are being floated to potential buyers. The first plan is to keep the current lot size of 10,000 square feet. But the space also has a current zoning designation of M1-5/R7-3, which means there’s a second option for a mixed used development of up to 60,000 square feet.2
