Something big is going up on the site of the shuttered Flushing Mall. Rumors of the mall's demise have been swirling since way back in 2011, but the foodie haven finally closed its doors this year and, it seems, will be razed to make room for a new development. YIMBY spotted plans for a 13-story, 192-apartment building with cellar-floor retail space near the site, and believes they're connected to the Two Fulton Square development. The new plans were filed by One Fulton Square developer F & T Group for the site bounded by College Point Boulevard, 37th Avenue, Prince Street, and 39th Avenue.
YIMBY reports that in September, an application was submitted for a large development at the site with 370,000 square feet of residential space, over 350,000 square feet of commercial space, a 33,000-square-foot community space, and 520 parking spots. It's likely that the new filing falls under the umbrella of September's development application. No renderings have been released for the site from project architect Margulies Hoelzli; the rendering above is conceptual and was made to demonstrate what could potentially rise on the site.
