Queens Blvd Auto Parts Store to be Razed, Development Looks Imminent

auto

April 17, 2015 Staff Report

Another large residential development is likely to come to Queens Blvd—this one near the Big Six Towers in Woodside.

A demolition permit was filed with the Department of Buildings earlier this month to raze a one-story auto parts shop located at 64-06 Queens Blvd.

The permit comes just two months after Queens Blvd Ventures bought the site for $5 million off Romano Holdings, according to city records.

The location was previously an Auto Barn, which appears to have been shuttered.

The company that bought the property has not yet filed with the Dept. of Buildings to erect a new structure. However, the site is zoned R7X, which would permit a large residential building to be built there.

Rikki. Oh, Rikki, Rikki, Rikki. The war you wage against everything.

You all sound like morons. The guy who is going to profit from his investment. Good for you, you got lucky. Not everyone is going to agree on development. Some like it some dont. Hipsters move in, thats life. But if you want development so your property value increases,dont complain when the prices. When you walk in a bar and its $12 for a bud, or $20 for a burger,dont cry,your property went up. Also hipsters dont support the places,they want a $2 can of pbr. They live 5 in an apartment because the rent is so high. Im for deveopement, im just not for overdevelopement. I dont care who moves in as long as their good for the neighborhood. I feel bad for the little guy, the mom and pop ,family places, who worked hard for years and are about to get run out by rents that are astronomical. We have subway sandwich shops, big corps running everything. Thats the sad thing,overdevelopement ruins the closeness of the community. I like knowing the deli owner,the pub owner,having that closeness,looking out for one and another. Now you dont even know who lives in your building. Double edge sword i guess
