Banking on an upzoning on Grand
There's a rumor that the Maspeth-Middle Village-Glendale rezoning has been put on hold while city planning figures out how to slip in an upzoning along Grand Avenue in Maspeth to accommodate the Polish and Slavic Credit Union building at 66-14 Grand Avenue (Meanwhile, they downzoned part of Grand Street, further down the road in Brooklyn). Let's have a look at the current permits...hmmm, a partial job permit. Building stories 2, dwelling units 1. They have permission to build a (very deep) cellar and the bank on the first floor right now. One more story containing a dwelling unit shouldn't be all that difficult to figure in. Could it be that the rumors are true?
