Two large residential buildings are planned to go up in East Elmhurst.

Plans were filed with the Department of Buildings on Oct. 6 for the construction of a four-story building at 32-17 112th Street near the Flushing Bay waterfront.

The building will consist of six apartments, which will share 32,000 square feet of residential space.

On the first floor, there will be one apartment and one enclosed parking spot. There will be two apartments on the second floor and one on the third and fourth floors. The fourth floor will also include half a duplex that leads up to a penthouse.

The property is being developed by Chen Wu of 112nd Street Construction LLC. An auto repair shop is currently located on the site. Demolition permits have yet to be filed, and the expected completion date has not been released.

Meanwhile, a six-story development is likely to go up on the corner of Northern Boulevard and 107th Street, reports real estate publication YIMBY.

The renderings were released to YIMBY yesterday.


The building, which has an address of 32-65 107th St, will consist of 20 apartments, with the apartments on average being about 1,000 square feet apiece, YIMBY reported.

The structure will also feature 3,077 square feet of retail space on the ground floor divided between four stores. The proposal includes ten parking spaces.

The building is being developed by Qin Li of Triple 8 Real Properties. It will replace an auto body shop.

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

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.
