What's Chon up to this time?
From the Times Ledger:
Community members are growing concerned about a builder’s amorphous plans for what they describe as a historic property in downtown Flushing.
Chon Property Corp. of Flushing bought the so-called Millenium office building, at 137-72 Northern Blvd., for $2.6 million in 2003, according to city records, but the building, which the city estimates was built in 1930, sits empty today, despite its prime location at Northern’s intersection with busy Union Street.
There were three open complaints, four open city Department of Buildings violations, seven open Environmental Control Board violations and an open partial stop-work order against the commercially zoned, 11,613-square-foot building as of Tuesday.
