The Real Deal:
Developer Xin Xiang Lin is looking to building a residential complex on the site of a Flushing Mormon church.
Xin filed a permit application to build an eight-story, 131-unit mixed-used building at 144-27 Sanford Avenue. The 113,000-square-foot property will be built on a 24,000-square-foot lot that sits between 147th Street and Parsons Boulevard.
Plans call for 93,000 square feet of residential space, with apartments having an average size of about 710 square feet. The building will also contain 20,000 square feet for an unspecified community facility.
The site will replace a two-story structure that was built in 1931. Demolition permits have yet to be filed.
