A project called One Flushing from a team comprised of Brooklyn-based Monadnock Development, nonprofit Asian Americans for Equality and Hanac Inc., was selected following a request for proposals. The project will have 208 affordable housing units and community and retail space.
It is part of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s initiative to create and preserve 200,000 units of affordable housing in 10 years.
The apartments will be available to individuals earning between $24,200 to $72,600 annually and $34,520 to $103,560 annually for a family of four. Housing in the building will be divided between 60 apartments reserved for senior citizens and 147 for low- and moderate-income households. There is also one unit for a superintendent.
“The One Flushing development plan is an example of a dynamic proposal that encompasses affordable housing, supportive senior housing, and services for the community as a whole,” HPD Commissioner Vicki Been said. “I look forward to seeing this development take shape and will be thrilled to welcome future residents to their new homes.”
Amenities will include a gym, a community room, laundry rooms, a 15,000-square-foot second-floor terrace and a green roof.
The Bernheimer Architecture-designed building will have large windows that are reinforced to reduce noise from the LIRR station behind the property. And it will have eco-friendly features such as solar panels on the roof.
The current parking lot on the site has 156 parking spaces on 43,200 square feet. When complete, the project will have more than the current amount of parking spots, according to HPD.
