In June, we stopped by 23-20 Jackson Avenue and saw that a plywood fence was erected, a prelude to demolition beginning at the former home of Prime Time Transportation, an 83,000 square foot mixed-use office/retail space.1 A demolition permit was filed with the Department of Buildings back in March, and construction crews have started, as seen in the photo below.2 Eventually, a nine-story mixed-use building will rise in its place.
Here’s more from New York YIMBY, who was the first to spot construction permits:3
Permits have been filed for a nine-story, mixed-use commercial building at 23-20 Jackson Avenue in Long Island City, Queens. The new structure will dedicate 65,000 square feet of newly built space toward residential units, a hotel, and dormitory spaces. The entire building itself is set to yield 82,851 square feet.
