An auto body shop at 27-07 44th Drive closed earlier in the month.
We walked by the garage over the weekend and saw that all of the equipment had been removed, as seen in the photo below.
While nothing has been filed with the Department of Buildings yet,1 it’s almost certain that this will eventually turn into a mixed-use building.
The lot is unique in that it forms an “L” shape around 26-04 Jackson Avenue. The Jackson Avenue side of the lot is currently vacant, and is mostly used as a parking lot.
A developer would likely want to purchase that building, which is currently a three-story mixed-use building that is also home to Mr. Wonton and a law firm.
