Construction reaches third floor at 11-17 47th Road

The last time we stopped by 11-17 47th Road, future home of a four-story, seven unit building, was in October, when construction had just reached over the fence.1 When we stopped by last week, we saw that construction has reached the third floor, as seen in the photo below.

New York YIMBY has more details on the site:2

The structure will measure 7,022 square feet, and its residential units should average 713 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. There will be two apartments per floor, except for the fourth floor, which will host a single unit. That unit will also feature private rooftop space.

Full Reveal: 10-42 47th Road

The last time we checked in at 10-42 47th Road was in October when construction crews put up pipe scaffolding.1 When we stopped by last week, we saw that the scaffolding has been removed, revealing the outside facade. The project will be completed late 2018, as per the signage.

Here are more details about the future building from NY YIMBY:2

The project will measure 4,897 square feet, which means its residential units should average 1,224 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. There will be an apartment each on the ground and second floors, followed two apartments spanning parts of the third and fourth floors.

New rendering, sidewalk shed appears at 22-43 Jackson Avenue

The last time we checked in at 22-43 Jackson Avenue was back in October, when rebar was starting to sprout on site.1 We stopped by last week and saw that there is a new rendering on site and that a sidewalk shed has been installed. Construction is just peaking over the fence, as seen in the photo below.

Eventually, a mixed-used building will rise containing 63,956 square feet of residential space and 11,725 square feet of commercial space.2 On site signage calls for an early 2020 delivery.

New York YIMBY has more details:3

The residential component will be divided between 71 units, giving an average unit size of about 900 square feet. That would normally correspond to rentals, but Long Island City and the neighborhoods to the east can occasionally see condo developments with relatively small units, so that is not impossible here.

Construction begins for Xi’an Famous Foods at 26-19 Jackson Avenue

The last time we checked in at Xi’an famous foods at 26-19 Jackson Avenue in June, construction crews had covered the windows with paper.1 When we stopped by last week, we saw that the construction paper has been removed and that work is underway, as seen in the photos below.

Xi’an has two other Queens locations in Woodside and also in Flushing, but it will be its first opening in Western Queens. The retail space, owned by Rockrose, is the former home of See.Me art gallery, which closed in late 2015.2 Delivery is expected sometime in early spring.

Here’s more about Xi’an foods from its website:3

Xi’an Famous Foods began as a 200 square foot basement stall in the Golden Shopping Mall in Flushing, N.Y. The original location, established in late 2005, was the first restaurant to bring the little-known cuisine of Xi’an to the United States, with signature hand-ripped noodles, secret spice mixes, and Xi’an “burgers” with housemade flatbread. Since then, we’ve expanded to nine locations in Manhattan, one in Brooklyn and two in Queens in total. As a family-owned business, we hope to reintroduce the world to the unique cuisine of our hometown: liangpi “cold skin” noodles, lamb pao mo soup, and wide hand-pulled “biang biang” noodles, all in its most authentic form.
