Queens Blvd will get new building at site of 2001 fire
From Sunnyside Post:
A developer filed plans Monday for a 6 story, 19-unit complex to go up Queens Boulevard on the empty lot next to Starbucks, according to Building Dept. records.
The building would go up at 46-11 Queens Boulevard, a lot that has been abandoned since a fire tore through the corner of 46th Street and Queens Boulevard in June 2001.
Since the fire, a new building went up on the corner of 46th Street/Queens Blvd that houses Starbucks—which opened in 2006—and T-Mobile. However, 46-11 Queens Boulevard has remained empty and the owner has faced complaints over the years about the construction fence being dangerous and garbage over the years.
