38th Avenue Development To Rise Six Stories

By Liz Goff
Work is underway to transform a former commercial building into a six-story residential building in the heart of the Dutch Kills community.

The building, located on 38th Avenue between 33rd and 34th Streets in Long Island City, is being converted from the two-story, 22, 280-square-foot commercial use building into a six-story, 65,916-square-foot residential development featuring 94 units. The size of the units indicates they will probably be rentals, real estate sources said.

Plans call for 10.5 units on the first floor, with the remainder of the half-unit on a mezzanine level. The building will feature 19 units on floors two through five and five units on the sixth floor.

The building will also feature at least one lounge, an exercise room, a game room, a management office and superintendent’s office in the basement. The first floor will feature a fitness room, 51 parking spaces and space for 47 bicycles. Amenity terraces will be located on the second floor, the sixth floor and the roof of the new building.

The building is located within walking distance of the Queens Plaza transportation hub, with M and R trains just one block away and the elevated N and Q lines just three blocks away.

The Q102 bus line is located at 31st Street and 39th Avenue and the Q101 bus line is co located less than a block away, on Northern Boulevard between 34th and 35th Streets.

The building is also located within walking distance to three big-name supermarkets located on or near Northern Boulevard, and the Steinway Street commercial strip.

Signs announcing development at the site were posted in 2015. The building is scheduled for completion in 2018.
