Dutch Kills Housing Boom

By Liz Goff

A two-story commercial eyesore in Long Island City is about to undergo transformation into a 6-story residential complex with indoor parking.

The two, two-story parcels at 34-03/37-08 34th Street, that have for years housed a food cart supply company and an electronic instrument repair outlet, will be demolished to make way for the apartment complex featuring 42 units on 30,000-square-feet of space.

The development includes a ground floor parking facility for 22 vehicles – a welcome feature for residents in the parking challenged neighborhood.

A seven-story building will soon replace a one-story commercial site at 37-33 33 Street in Long Island City.

The mixed residential/commercial development between 37th and 38th Avenues will feature 43 residential units on 40,000-square-feet of space, along with underground parking for 35 vehicles – more than required by the city for a project of this size.

The project is slated for completion in approximately 18 months.

Both projects are located in the Dutch Kills section of Long Island City in a formerly commercial/manufacturing area that was rezoned by the city in 2008.
