Another slice of Queens Blvd real estate has just hit the market.

The owner of 43-19 Queens Blvd has just listed the property for $4.5 million.

The building is currently occupied by Subway, Lucky’s Salon and Realty Depot. There are also four 2-bedroom apartments and 2 parking spaces in the rear of the lot.

The 3-story structure—built in the 1930s– is currently utilizing 5,865 square feet of building space. Zoning permits a building of up to 9,200 square feet (4 x the lot size).

honestly we should be happy this is happening now and not 5-10 years ago like in brooklyn, because nowadays these developers are a little more sensitive to the surrounding neighborhood. i know that sounds ridiculous to some of you but just look at the waterfront in williamsburg, those 50 story condos are ridiculous and that whole area is insufferable now. at least here in the zoning rules we have a 7 story max which to me makes sense in this neighborhood where all the other buildings are 6 stories anyway. as long as they have ground floor retail space so we can still do our shopping than it’s not the end of the world. if someone wants to spend $2000 for 1 bedroom right next to the 7 then let ’em.

I think the zoning rules were changed in 2011 to allow for buildings taller than 7 floors on Queens Boulevard. i recall reading that the limit is now 12.

Pete, You’re right, I just went back and checked. It is Greenpoint Ave that is limited to 7 stories, there is a 5 block stretch of the Boulevard can have 12 stories, that’s a little high but still a far cry from the 50 story behemoths in LIC and Williamsburg. These damn zoning rules are so hard to read.

I hope we can get rid of all rat infested buildings that are falling apart and replaced with better buildings, but it won’t happen when we have people paying $2500 for properties that are falling apart. Hopefully they will also tear down the building across from this one on the other side of blvd the one that was just sold for 7mil, and build a better place, at least we can get rid of the pawn shop.

What do you mean by the brooklyn reference? What do you think will happen to Sunnyside?

You’re right it has been happening pretty fast. Makes you wonder if some investor did an all cash blitz on the neighborhood.

New York Attorney General Letitia James announced Wednesday the takedown of a prolific Queens-based gun trafficking crew accused of selling firearms and ammo at an East Elmhurst playground, the Queens Center Mall and other locations around the borough.

James secured a 625-count indictment charging five men for participating in the gun smuggling ring, which involved selling dozens of ghost guns, assault weapons, high-capacity magazines and hundreds of rounds of ammunition.
