An auto repair shop and similar auto stores are going to be torn down in Corona, according to Department of Buildings filings.

The buildings to be demolished are located on 97-01 Northern Boulevard, a large corner lot located next to a Speedway Gas Station. The one-story building houses a number of auto businesses.

The owner of the property is listed as Arthur Koptiev, a principal with Forest Hills-based Platinum Realty Associates.  Platinum is currently doing another large-scale development in Queens.

Platinum is working with Curbcut Urban Partners in developing an eight-story office and medical building at 38-01 Queens Boulevard building in Long Island City.

Koptiev could not be reached to answer what his plans are for the Northern Boulevard property.

Great to see this area of Corona getting developed…
Perfect location for this type of Development.
We welcome any new development.
Relocated my Business, Fabric City Inc. from 86 ST. Roosevelt ave. to 100 st. Northern Blvd. 18 years ago. Best business decision I’ve made. Great location.


Yet another small business group to be disbanded in favor of GREEDY people looking to make a quick buck at the expense of our neighbors…


So a guy that wants to cash in on an investment is greedy? What business course did you go to? I just want to make sure I don’t go there.
