As The Shannon Pot settles into its new home at 10-50 44th Drive,1 its old stomping grounds at 21-57 44th Drive a/k/a 21-59 44th Drive has been knocked down.
We last checked in back in August when abatement had just started at the one story building.2 When we stopped by last week, we saw that construction crews have laid waste to that building, as seen in the photo below.
According to DOB Permits, a mixed-use building will rise featuring 14,883 square feet of residential space and 2,672 square feet of commercial space at an FAR of 4.00. There will be 20 apartment units in the seven story building.3
