The last time we checked in at 42-22 Crescent Street was in June 2018, when we saw that construction crews had put up pipe scaffolding.1 When we stopped by last week, the scaffolding has been taken down to reveal the outside facade at the future home of a nine-story mixed-used building with 29 residential units. Permits for that were approved by the DOB on on June 9.2
Here’s more from New York YIMBY, who was the first to uncover the permits:3
Flushing-based developer Jian Tian Zheng hopes to build 29 apartments and 1,400 square feet of commercial space on the lot down the block from the Queensboro Plaza subway stop. Those 29 units would be divided across 21,058, and average units would measure 726 square feet. A 1,400-square-foot store would fill the first floor, followed by three to four units apiece on the upper floors.
