Eastone Capital has recently made strides towards the development of a five-story, mixed-use building on Forest Avenue in Ridgewood that will include residential units and a gym.
The property—located at 62-41 Forest Ave., near Metropolitan Avenue and between Harman Street and Greene Avenue in Ridgewood—will have more than 30 residential units, according to the city Department of Buildings (DOB).
The first floor of the building will also feature a gym and 901-square-foot outdoor recreational area. Above that, the residential square footage will be divided among 30 units, for an average size of approximately 1,060 square feet per unit.
According to the DOB, the site will have 15 parking spaces, a mechanical area and eight off-street parking spots. There will also be 23 bicycle parking spaces in a 270-square-foot area.
Briarwood’s Gerald Caliendo Architects is designing the project, which is located in one of the quieter neighborhoods of western Queens. The site is two blocks from Grover Cleveland High School and Christ the King High School, one block from PS 71 elementary school and a 10-minute walk to the M train stop on Forest Avenue. It is close to the Metropolitan Avenue shopping strip and is approximately one mile from Wycoff [sic] Heights Medical Center.
The site most definitely is not 2 blocks from Christ the King High School. Since this strange story featured photos from March, we decided to include some taken this past week for your enjoyment. Not out of context at all!

Isn't this across the street from St. John's Cemetery? Christ The King is about a half a mile from that photo and the M train is out of service there and is running toward Broadway Junction (hey just in time for the MIZ development in East New York)
This also sounds like the deal de Faustio gave to one of his shady donors for a Yeshiva school of some sort.
Another dialysis center? Queens is unattractive, out-of-shape and incredibly unhealthy!
"Isn't this across the street from St. John's Cemetery?"
Nope. One and one-half to about two miles away.
This is behind the Walgreens at Forest Avenue, not the one on 80th Street.
Not just a plain box as most complain of...
The one on 80 is a CVS I think, my mistake.
Don't gyms require special permits or a variance as "physical culture establishments"?
Yes, unfortunately the city still makes gyms get a PCE special permit at the BSA. Another loop to jump through to run a business in the city. This restriction has led to sky rocket fees due the lack of supply. I hope the CB gives the gym proprietor a fair hearing.
