A nine-story building consisting of 17 units is about to be constructed at 41-28 44th Street. And there are signs that other development could be on its way too.
The planned 9- story building, which will be located between 43rd Avenue and Skillman Avenue, is going to be very 81 feet tall, according to filings with the Department of Buildings.
The property was a 2-story home until recently. However, Vincent Romano, the owner of Janten Development, recently demolished the building and construction is about to begin on the new building.
Ramono said the units are likely to be rentals and was not sure when they would be completed.
Ramono said that he owned other property and was familiar with the neighborhood. He did not disclose where they were.
However, a study of property records revealed that Ramono’s company Janten bought three two-family homes on Skillman Avenue last year. They are located at 43-10, 43-12, 43-14 Skillman Avenue. Based on zoning maps, they are in a different zone and can be built to a maximum height of 33 feet.
