10-Story Building Featuring School, 90 Apartments Planned for Queens Boulevard in Elmhurst

July 3, 2018 By Tara Law

New permits have been filed for a 10-story mixed use building on Queens Boulevard in Elmhurst.

The building, which has the official address of 70-40 45th Ave., will offer 90 apartment units, a small school, and retail space. The building will be 104 feet tall and will have a total of 10,508 square feet.

The developer, Skyhill LLC, originally filed plans for the property in 2016. The new plans will supersede the previously filed design, according to Department of Buildings records.

The current plan calls for a building that offers 9,217 square feet of commercial space, 7,443 square feet of community space and 83,848 square feet of residential space.

A school for children ages 6 to 12 will be located on the first floor, and retail space will be located in the basement, according to the plans.

The apartments will be located on the second through ninth floors. Outdoor recreational space will be located on the fifth and eighth floors.

The structure will offer 56 parking spaces in a garage located on the basement and on the first floor. An additional 30 parking open spaces will be located on the second and third floors.

The property is located six blocks from the 69th St/Fisk Ave. (7) subway station.

Lam & Lam Engineering will be responsible for the design.

Great! Even more people and less parking for the 10 people that use the bike lanes in a 7 day period.


They should build another hospital or Fire station, something that would benefit the neighborhood.
All this will do is make more crowded.
Overcrowding is not good for no one

Met Council leader warns of ‘catastrophe’ for low-income families in Queens due to lack of pandemic-era federal food aid

Mar. 28, 2023 By Bill Parry

As an accomplished legislator, law professor and media personality with broad experience in government and not-for-profit organizations, Met Council CEO and executive director David Greenfield is well aware of the power of words. With Passover arriving on Wednesday, April 5, and with federal pandemic food assistance no longer available to low-income families in Queens, the leader of the nation’s largest Jewish charity organization warned of a coming “catastrophe” and called for the city to step up to provide $13 million in emergency funding for pantries to help New Yorkers facing food insecurity and elevated costs of living in the borough.

Pair of Queens community organizations will activate public spaces to celebrate local cultures

Two Queens community organizations are among an inaugural cohort of five groups citywide that will lead new projects to celebrate local cultures and histories in public spaces under a new initiative called The Local Center in a partnership between Urban Design Forum and the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD).

At a time when New York is grappling with an uneven pandemic recovery and as displacement looms large for communities and neighborhoods across the five boroughs, this new endeavor will convene interdisciplinary teams to transform and activate the shared spaces where cultural traditions flourish — and importantly, center the community visions and leadership that is too often left out of the process.
