A one-story building located at 50th Street and Queens Boulevard is about to be demolished to make way for an eight-story apartment building.
A demolition permit was filed with the Dept. of Buildings on Oct. 27 to knock down the existing one-story building located at 50-11 Queens Blvd., which was formerly occupied by N.E.M. Electronics.
The owner of the site, Ronald Ji, said the existing building should be demolished by the end of the year.
Ji initially filed plans for a seven-story building, with four floors for hotel space and three for residential units.
That plan was rejected by the DOB.
Ji said that he now plans to build an eight-story building with about 60 apartments.
