Another tower proposed for Flushing

From the Times Ledger:

The developer of an 11-story, 124,000-square-foot mixed-use building proposed for downtown Flushing requested a zoning change at Tuesday night’s Community Board 7 meeting.

Lawyers and an architect for the United Construction and Development Group asked the board to support changing the proposed site at 134-03 35th Ave. from industrial zoning to allow for mixed-use residential.

The company argued that residential zoning better reflects the current character of the area surrounding the site near the intersection of Prince Street and 35th Avenue.

The developer also said the community benefits of the project, called the New Millennium building, will make it a net positive for downtown Flushing.

The project, as proposed, would provide 87,000 square feet of residential space — most likely condominiums — 17,000 square feet of commercial space, a 14,900-square-foot senior center and about 5,000 square feet of doctor’s offices. It will also include at least 189 new parking spaces.

What about the infrastructure?

Yeah, whats one more tower? They will find a way to squeeze more towers on whatever plot of land is available.

The politicians sold out big time! The madness never ends!

And CB#7 gives another thumbs up on yet another over-development project.

This board of rubber stamps never met a project they didn't like or approve.

Please tell me just what do we need CBs for?

To give us the illusion that the community has a say in whats shoved up their asses?

I think not.

The CBs are just an ersatz arm of government where we can gripe to our hearts' content then watch Apelian's ego ride roughshod over the region!

Abolish them and NYC saves $85,000 a year for each district manager's salary plus staff and rent.

F&T, Fultonex, TDC, whoever are CB7's landlord.

They way I see it it's a conflict of interest!
