A 6 story residential building is about to be constructed on 43rd Street, between 43rd and Skillman Avenues, in Sunnyside.
The building will be comprised of 30 apartments and will have a glass and brick exterior, according to the owner of the building. The apartments will be all rentals.
The development will take place on a site where there is an abandoned home and an empty lot next door. The empty house has had a squatter living in it for at least a year. The squatter parks a supermarket trolley with all his belongs outside the house each night.
The abandoned house is scheduled to be demolished any day now, the building owner said. The development is expected to be completed within 2 years.
