Seven-Story Complex To Change 37th Avenue

By Liz Goff
Big chang3es are in store at 34th Street and 37th Avenue in the Dutch Kills section of Long Island City, where a seven-story residential and commercial complex is about to change the local landscape.

The project includes two buildings developed in two phases that will feature 60 re4sidential units.

Plans show the units will be developed on 53,275-square-feet of residential space. The development will also feature 13,060-square-feet of ground floor commercial space, according to the plans.

The 19,500-square-foot parcel stretches from 33rd to 34th Streets, between 31-11 and 31-19 33rd Street, and 37-12 and 37-18 34th Street. The parcels were formerly occupied by a family health center on 33rd Street and a city-operated methadone out patient clinic on 34th Street.

Photios Cougentakis, of Port Washington-based Constructamax, Inc., acquired the property in the fall of 2014 for $9.7million.

Buildings on the western portion of the site (33rd Street,) were demolished in 2016 to make way for Phase One of the project. Buildings on the eastern side (34th Street) are facing a wrecking ball to make way for Phase Two

Phase One will feature 29,520-square-feet of residential space and 3,164-square-feet of commercial space. The ground floor will feature a small, 316-square-foot commercial space and a 1,258-square-foot residential lobby and mailroom.

The second floor will feature four one-bedroom residential units, ranging from 520- to 677-square-feet, a laundry room, an outdoor recreation space and a rear yard. Floors three through six will each feature a 421-square-foot studio unit, six one-bedroom units, and a two-bedroom apartment. The seventh floor will feature a one-bedroom apartment and three two-bedroom units.

Phase One will also feature a large, rooftop terrace with a view of the Manhattan skyline.

The completed complex will feature an 88-vehicle underground parking garage accessible via a ramp on 34th Street.

Renderings for Phase Two have not yet been revealed, but a building similar to Phase One is expected to rise on the site.
