From Bayside Patch:
The city’s Board of Standards and Appeals has granted permits for two long-vacant sites in Little Neck, Community Board 11’s district manager said.
Permits have been approved for a watch manufacturer to move its headquarters into the former Leviton site along Little Neck Parkway and for a complex to be constructed at the former Scobee Diner site.
Susan Seinfeld, CB 11’s district manager, said that E. Gluck Corp., a watch manufacturer based in Long Island City, has been given the go-ahead to begin work at the Little Neck Parkway locale that previously housed Leviton, which manufactured electrical wiring devices and motion sensors.
A permit has also been granted for the former Scobee Diner on Northern Boulevard, where a complex is planned that will house a bank on its first floor and a dentist’s office on the second floor.
The popular diner closed for business in November 2010.
