A local developer is looking to put up a new building in Woodside that will include nearly 50 residential units as well as a supermarket, daycare facility, and other commercial spaces.
According to a permit filed with the building department last week, Queens-based developer Cheung Kiu plans to build a four-story, 64,472 square foot building at 31-19 56th Street in Woodside.
The plans show that the development would have 40,099 square feet of residential space, 18,711 square feet of commercial space, and 5,662 square feet of community space, with 47 apartments on the upper floors and retail and offices on the lower levels.
Kiu plans to build an attended below ground parking garage with 68 spots on the site, according to the plans.
The first floor will be occupied by a variety of businesses. There will be a supermarket, a daycare facility for kids between two and six years old, a Laundromat and a beauty salon, according to the plans.
The second floor will have a combination of apartments and medical office space, as well as 28 more parking spaces, and the third and fourth floor will be exclusively residential.
The third floor will also have an outdoor rooftop area for residents of the building.
