Demolition underway at 27-19 44th Drive as construction permits are approved

In April, we posted that a construction fence was up at the former site of LIC Auto Repair on 44-12 Purves Street a/k/a 27-19 44th Drive.1 Demolition has now begun on the building facing 44th Drive, pursuant to a DOB permit approved on April 24.2 The Department of Buildings approved work for the 27-story build on May 20, 2015, so expect to see construction start immediately after demolition finishes.

According to permits filed in October 2014 first spotted by New York YIMBY,3  a 27-story building with 165 units (122,405 square feet) and a commercial space of 2,124 square feet will take its place.4
