Owners Await City Council Nod On Zoning Change

By Liz Goff
The City Planning Commission (CPC) last month approved a request for a zoning change that would clears a path for the owners of a popular Jackson Heights car wash to develop an eight-story commercial building at the site.

Final approval of the zoning variance would allow owners, H&M LLC, to stop the subs from flowing at the decades-old Classic Car Wash at 74-04 Northern Boulevard to make way for the new building.

The new development would feature ground floor retail space, parking for 239 vehicles on the second and third floors, 18,400-square-feet of community space on the fourth floor, and commercial or office space on the fifth through eighth floors.

The request for the zoning change has been making its way through the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) that includes public input from the local Community Board and approval from the Queens Borough President’s office, the City Planning Commission and the City Council.

Community Board 3 voted unanimously on March 9 to approve the zoning change, and Queens Borough President Melinda Katz signed off on the request on April 21. 

The request will now go before the City Council Land Use Committee and to the full Council for final approval.

The developers hope to break ground on the project in 2018 and expect to complete construction some time in 2019.
