A portion of the parking lot of the Georgia Diner, which years ago was slated for a multiplex and mall, is again up for sale for $24 million.
The more than 47,000-square-foot lot on the corner of Justice and 55th avenues, a block from Queens Boulevard and across the street from the Queens Place mall, also has more than 200,000 square feet in development rights, according to the listing.
The lot, owned by the diner, is zoned for residential and commercial purposes, and a potential developer would have to build either a residential and/or community facility or use the existing approved plans, the listing said. It was not immediately clear what the approved plans are.
A manager at the restaurant, who declined to give his name, said the eatery occasionally lists the land to see what offers come in.
"It doesn't cost anything to list it," he said.
From a tipster:
"The path of Horse Brook ran beneath the Georgia Diner parking lot. Expect construction woes."
Maybe that's why it was never sold in the first place?
