In late January, we noticed that Gas Trac at 27-01 Jackson Avenue had shut down.1 When we were walking by the lot last week, we noticed that construction crews had installed a chain link fence around the site.
Last year, the 9,200-square-foot lot at 27-01 Jackson Avenue sold for $11,600,000.2 In December, New York YIMBY spotted plans filed with the department of buildings calling for a mixed-used build with 15 stories and 88 units totaling 72,328 square feet and 7,090 square feet of commercial space.3
But then in February, renderings were released for 27-01 Jackson Avenue, and the site across the street, 26-32 Jackson Avenue, which differed greatly from the permits filed. Here’s what Queens Brownstoner had to say:4 “The buildings are called Jackson East, at 26-32 Jackson Avenue, and Jackson West, at 27-01 Jackson Avenue. Designed by Raymond Chan Architects, the towers will each rise 30 and 40 stories. […] No details on any construction timeline, or whether the units will go rental or condo.”
