We last checked in on 27-01 Jackson Avenue back in March when demolition had just begun.1 Things have been pretty quiet on the site since then, with the one-story steel canopy and offices still in place from the old Gas Trac station. But those two structures aren’t going to be up for too much longer, with permits filed on September 21 calling for the demolition of both.2 Permits were also filed for a plywood construction fence, which crews put up next week.
Last year, the 9,200-square-foot lot at 27-01 Jackson Avenue sold for $11,600,000.3 In December, New York YIMBY spotted plans filed with the DOB 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.4 However, these permits were last reviewed in July by the DOB and disapproved.
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:5 “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.”
