A Sunnyside Church located at 40-05 Skillman Avenue has sold for $4 million, according to public records.

Moak Yang Presbyterian Church, which moved to the location in 1992, sold the property to Elmhurst-based Eunhasu Corp. on Jan. 29 for $4 million.

The property is zoned M1, which is for light industry—although offices, hotels and retail uses are permitted.

Eunhasu Corp. has been very active in the real estate market in the past six months. The company bought a four story residential building in Hunters Point for $12 million in January. In October, the company sold a warehouse in Long Island City for $37 million.

I don’t think most of us are against housing. We just want common sense housing.
We all work our butts off and when it comes to our community, we want our voices heard loud and clear. Progress, building and moving forward are what makes this city great.

Are you guys crazy ?

Why are some of you so against progress? I’m sure many of you are tired of living in these crumbling old buildings. They need to use these spaces and build housing. No one says you have to move there , but don’t be against it. The neighborhood is changing so either adapt and change with it or you can always move…

Anyone know what’s going on with that building on 48th and Barnett? It used to be billiards and lousy gym. Fearful it will be ugly high rise condo. Anyone know the zoning there?

Build these mo fo’s as high as snoop. Keep building and keep running out the trash that can’t afford to live here.

Remember, Churches Mosques, Temples, Religious Institutions pay no taxes, no property taxes, no income taxes, what a great business.

They can build whatever they want up on Queens Blvd. Keep the sky over Skillman and Lou Lodati Park open so we can breathe. Don’t box us in with offices or a useless Hotel.

They are going to put major buildings holding 70,000 people in the rail yards, you can kiss the sky goodbye.

But there is a housing shortage, and that is prime real estate. They’re not manufacturing any more real estate, you know.

I’ll believe it when I see more than a news article.
Even then, it’s not going to go past Honeywell.
Nobody wants this church to be developed!!!

If you didn’t want it to change then you should have put up the 4 million to purchase it. Put up or shut up

Mary Kate, that’s such a cop out. Why don’t you give them half the park too! You must live in LIC.

I would hate to see this company come in and ruin our open space on Skillman and next to our kids playground. Please keep it under 3 stories.

How about that eyesore next to Dazie’s restaurant. And there’s an empty little hole-in-the wall takeout place next to the TD bank on 41st street. Used to be an Asian takeout restaurant and it’s been empty for years.

First, it’s Queen of Angels (only one queen) and a developer leveled the Synagogue that existed on that site just before the market bottomed out. Some clean-up through the years, but no other activity since.
