This property at 68-10 58th Avenue in Maspeth used to be a welding yard. Next to it on the same lot was a small two-story building containing an office with an apartment above it.
As you can see in this drawing, the "addition" actually drapes over the old structure and fills up the entire former yard space. The plan calls for 9 total units on the property; previously there was one residential unit.
Hmmm...what was built so far doesn't match the drawing. The Juniper Park Civic Association had complained about this building since May; it wasn't physically inspected by DOB until December.
It was finally shut down for building contrary to approved plans and then socked again for violating the stop work order. Let's see what loophole the developer uses to legalize this fine example of Queens Crap. Will keep you posted.
