Demolition has completed at 27-01 Jackson Avenue, former site of a Gas Trac station. Demolition permits were approved for the site earlier in October, and construction crews laid waste to a one-story structure as well as a steel canopy that had previously stood in its place. A construction fence had gone up on the site in late September.1
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.2 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:3 “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.”
