Construction work has already begun for a new mixed-use building at the corner of 50th Avenue and Vernon Boulevard in Long Island City, and now there’s a clearer picture of what the structure will look like.
Blueprints of the forthcoming building at 49-18 Vernon Blvd. have been posted on the construction fence.
Based on its blueprints, the OAPD Architecture-designed building’s façade will be comprised of a glass and stone design, and there will be ground-floor retail at the property.
The new building will be a five-story, 15-unit residential structure, according to filings with the Department of Buildings. About 4,450 square feet has been set aside for the retail component in the building.
