Tamal Monsur, on May 4, was issued a temporary certificate of occupancy for construction of a 20-unit, 20,052-square-foot mixed-use building at 172-18 Jamaica Avenue in Jamaica.
The plans, pre-filed on May 1, 2015, call for the construction of a 59-foot tall, 6-story, mixed-use building.
The project is described in the filings as: to erect a new six-story and cellar, mixed-use building with 12′ 0″ curb cut.
The plans show that the building has convenience retail stores located in the cellar and ground floor of the building. The ground floor also has a residential lobby, while the building has 11 off-street parking spaces. Floors two through six have four dwelling units each. The units on the second floor will have access to a residential terrace while the roof will also have outdoor recreational space.
The average size of each dwelling unit is about 871-square-feet.
Angelo Ng + Anthony Ng Architects Studio is the architect on file.
The project signals a possible revitalization in downtown Jamaica, an area that was hit hard by downzoning during Michael Bloomberg’s mayoral stint.
The property was acquired for $1.4 million on January 14, 2015.
