Yet one more remnant of Queens’ manufacturing past, the West Chemical Building, a.k.a. the CN Building, has been claimed by the gods of redevelopment this week. It’s just one of many manufacturing, storage and warehouse buildings along the array of cul-de-sacs off Jackson Avenue between Queens Boulevard and 21st Street to be repurposed or razed in favor of high-rise luxury housing in recent years.

A five-story poured concrete structure, marked by a siding entering the building, housed the manufacturing plant known variously as “CN Building”, “West Chemical Products”, or “West Disinfectants, ”an arched roof parapet on its east side with a truncated corner. An angled structure, likely containing a conveyor belt connected the building from its left side to a brick/poured concrete three-story building sporting a CN logo in relief.

DNAinfo published a few more details on Jasper Venture Group’s plan to convert the vacant Parkway Hospital site, located in Forest Hills, to a condo development. Turns out Jasper Venture Group did not secure the building in a recent auction, like we assumed. The group already holds the mortgage on the building and, according to DNAinfo, “said that it was hoping to sell the site in a foreclosure auction, but so far that effort has not been successful.”

When 70-35 113th Street Holdings LLC — the winners of he most recent auction — missed two deadlines to pay off the price of the hospital, Jasper Venture Group came up with a new plan to convert the site themselves. The actual details of the development planned are not known; it’s likely the developers will have to apply for a zoning variance. Japsper Venture Group also hinted at demolition for the hospital, which has sat vacant since 2008. The have not yet filed any work with the DOB.

The Parkway Hospital, vacant and in disrepair since 2008, is going condo. Real estate investment firm Jasper Venture Group of New York released a press release on its plans for the Forest Hills site. It looks like a demolition is coming: “Though the hospital is over 100,000 square feet, Jasper wants to increase its size. Rebuilding condominiums from the ground up will breathe new life into the idle site.” Jasper has not yet released any information on the design or the timeframe for construction.

In March, it was looking like the Parkway Hospital would head back to auction after the company 70-35 113th Street Holdings LLC couldn’t pay its full bid. So it appears that’s what happened with the property, and Jasper Venture Group is the newest buyer. Stay tuned for more details…

A few more details on the massive Broadway development site that just sold for $10,225,000: a condo’s coming. Real Estate Weekly reports that the buyers, Axelrod Development Group and Lions Group, “are planning a 76-unit condo in Long Island City.” (The site is right on the border of Astoria.)

Yes, there’s a new priciest condo unit in town. (This unit at The View — asking $3,580,000 — didn’t last long.) Curbed spotted the Nest Seekers listing for this three bedroom, three bathroom condo at The View asking $5,388,000. With a total of 2,108 interior square feet, that’s $2,555 per square foot.

The penthouse has a fireplace, floor-to-ceiling glass windows, a wrap-around terrace, heated marble floors in the bathroom and a speaker system throughout. We’d still want something more dramatic in an apartment that costs more than $5 mill. If you’d like to see the space for yourself, the first open house is scheduled for this Sunday from 12 pm to 2 pm.
