In May, we were looking at 41-05 29th Street when we saw that a plywood construction fence had been installed, the future home of a 24-story mixed-used building.1 When we stopped by last week, we saw that construction crews have demolished the two-story building that previously stood in that lot. The permit for the new building was filed on April 24, and last reviewed (and rejected) on May 4.2
