Oversized crap coming to Richmond Hill

From Queensbeans:

A new residential building is coming to Richmond Hill, a Queens neighborhood. The tower will be addressed at 93-13 112th Street and will feature six stories. The site is located around the corner from Atlantic Avenue, which serves as a connection between Queens and Brooklyn. Six blocks from the site there is the 111th Street subway station, which is serviced by the J trains.

The developer is Gorden Tan, whereas Peninsula MEP LLC will be handling the design. The area is famous for its Queen Anne and Victorian structures, so the design of this particular building will be something that will get people talking, whatever direction the architects decide to go.

Outside historic district the area is considered fair game for developers.

six stories is certainly tower for the immediate area. somebody sold out for them to move in... probably living somewhere unattached with the proceeds. its gonna be one narrow ass stick.

I wonder how many third worlders they'll be able to shoe horn into that building

We need a law that any new construction over 2 stories needs to provide onsite parking so they don't suck up all of the local spots. That would limit building way more than any nonsense 'affordable housing' restriction.

This is a one and two family zone. Who did they pay to get this approved?

I would say there goes the neighborhood, but Richmond Hill,along with those other neighborhoods that ANON listed have already gone to third world garbage strewn shit a long time ago. Just expect more shit, more over-crowing, more taxing of the infrastructure, more driving around to look for parking, MORE GARBAGE, more churches ,more illegal conversions, more noise, more 99 cent stores, more crappy food places with crappy service and of course less grass & trees. Ironic as the shit hole Middle East clears out, SE Queens is becoming the NEW Middle East, meaning crappy overcrowded slums complete with tons of garbage and clothes hanging out windows drying.

I mean doesn't anyone care about the future here or is just a smash and grab mentality. Amazing that at one time, all of those communities listed from ANON, were actually nice places.

And while like the other ANON stated about a new law for over 2 stories needing to provide onsite parking, again the problem is who is going to enforce it. I mean there is a law that a certain percentage is supposed to contain green space, but is that ever enforced, do you ever see green space with these new shit places (and a flower pot is not considered green space).

NYC is the worst fake liberal environmental friendly place on the planet.

These will soon become No Go Zones. And 100 years from now there will be wars and terrorism in these communities. Look at Michigan with nearly 2 million Muslims packed into a small area. One day they will
fight to make it their own territory/nation and the US will give them that land for them to govern. The same thing happened in the Middle East in the mid-20 century . History will repeat itself.

Face it - Its a Free-For-All in Queens, the city, Dept of Buildings, and environmental groups, etc. don't give a rats butt about the negative effects of over building. What was an amazingly great quality of life in suburbia is now being converted to a city Crap-Hole. I considered myself Blessed to have been born in an era when Queens was a phenomenal place to live. Its beauty unmatched.

Wow. The zoning for that piece of property is R6A. They're planning on a 7200 sf building.

Unlike Europe, where Muslim migrants are the primary cause of crime, the major Muslim neighborhood in Michigan, Dearborn, is much much safer than nearby Detroit.

I can't help but agree with anonymous about a time when Queens was an amazing place to live and wasn't an overcrowded nightmare but still a place of small suburban towns and a great quality of life. I could see the changes coming in the changes coming in the seventies and left as soon as I could to go to college in a small Midwestern town, and eventually find myself in South Orange County, California only a block from the Pacific Ocean. South Orange County is still a beautiful place as strict zoning protects its character, and new master planned communities were built as well. The one unfortunate thing was seeing beautiful open spaces being developed, but atleast they did preserve areas of green space. Eventually all my close family ended up leaving the New York area except for some relatives living on Long Island and others in Upstate New York and adjacent Northeastern Pennyslvania.
