Of all the many, many residential projects in the works in Long Island City, we are pretty excited to see the results at 5-33 48th Avenue. Construction has moved slowly at the old brick warehouse for awhile now; before that the building was in pretty bad shape. Since a check-in earlier this year, the facade looks great and the windows even better. Now it’s just a question of how the interiors turn out. At the end of the day, there should be 36 residential units and ground-floor commercial space here.

Check out those nice, new windows at 5-33 48th Avenue, the LIC warehouse conversion between 5th Street and Vernon Boulevard. Once construction wraps, this will be a mixed use build with 36 residential units and ground-floor commercial space. The DOB approved plans for a two-story vertical addition but that’s either not happening at all, or construction hasn’t started yet. Given what the building looked like in 2012, this is a major improvement! If the interiors are nice we imagine this will sell or lease in absolutely no time.

Residential Conversion and Roof Addition for 5-33 48th Avenue [Q’Stoner] GMAP

Construction is underway on the brick building at 5-33 48th Avenue, between 5th Street and Vernon Boulevard in Hunters Point. The DOB issued permits at the beginning of this year to convert the manufacturing building into a mixed use build with residential and ground-floor commercial space. It also approved plans for a two-story vertical addition on the roof and parking in the cellar. A building application from several years ago proposed 36 interior units. This building has been in pretty bad shape for some time, but it looks like it has plenty of potential as a residential development. Here’s to hoping the two-story roof addition doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb. GMAP
