Forest Hills Patch:
A number of stores located on the corner of Queens Blvd and 65th Road are about to face the wrecking ball to make way for a eight-story mixed use building.
Bahar Corp., the developer, filed documents with the Department of Buildings on Nov. 30 seeking to install a side walk shed in preparation of bulldozing the structure. The company filed for a demolition permit in October.
The new building will carry a 98-02 Queens Blvd. address. It will include 59 apartments, ranging from one-bedroom to three-bedroom, with balconies, 7,000-square feet of medical office space as well as retail on the street level and a parking garage for 59 cars.
