"On the corner of 45th Avenue and 169th Street in Flushing there was a rather nice house.
Now it has become this:
The Station Road Civic Association got wind that the developer (name is evasive at the moment) was planning on building a 3 to 4 story medical/office facility. On the corner of 168th Steet and 45th avenue (one block to the left of picture) stands P.S. 107. Anyone that knows the area is aware that it is completely residential. The Station Road Civic Association was able to get enough support from the neighborhood and make so much noise that the plot is now for sale as is. Probably at a rather steep loss for the developer (think that means tax write off)." - anonymous
Actually, the DOB just reviewed the application on 2/11/10 and they'll probably get approval in the future. Better keep your eye on this one... Note "zoning approval pending".
