Seven-Story, 150-Unit Complex Planned for Roosevelt Avenue

June 11, 2018 By Tara Law

Building permits were filed Friday for a 7-story mixed-use building on Roosevelt Avenue.

The building, proposed for 91-09 Roosevelt Ave., will feature ground floor commercial space, community facilities–such as doctors offices– on the second floor, as well as 150 apartments on floors 3 through 7.

The plan, filed Friday, includes space for 100 parking spaces in the cellar. Residents of the building will have access to a laundry room and bicycle parking on third floor.

The 91,463 square foot building will offer 59,167 square feet of residential space, 16,900 square feet of community facility space and 15,396 square feet of commercial space.

The property owner is listed as Ron Cohen of Mastic Management LLC. Mastic Management, which purchased the property for $12 million in 2016. The location was previously owned by Cumberland Farms, a convenience store company.

The property is currently occupied by an auto repair shop. Mastic filed demolition permits for the existing building in July 2016.

The location is a block from the 90th Street- Elmhurst Avenue (7) subway station.

not so sure folks will be eager to live so close to the constant train traffic


Didn’t they get rejected? There is no infrastructure to support building such large apartment buildings in the area. 7 train is full by the time it gets to 90th St already! Someone took money under the table!

I like very much your comente, I think it will change the face of Roosevelt av.


Cumberland Farms sold this guy a bill of goods. The remidiation required on a gas station and buried tanks means they have to dig out the tanks and remove all the soil in the property area and import new soil. This property has been used as a gas station for decades. I wouldn’t want to leave in the apartments above it as the chemicals can offgas into the apartments for decades. They redeveloped the gas station on 87th and Northern and it took them three years to build it out.

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.
