The latest addition to Flushing, Queens’s development boom is an eight-story residential building set to rise at 136-78 41st Avenue. The project will rise a short walk away from the Flushing branch of the Queens Library.

While plans haven’t been officially filed yet, YIMBY has got its hands on the first rendering for the project, which shows off the building’s glassy and gray brick facade. The building will have 65 apartments, most likely condos, YIMBY posits, and many if not most units will have balconies.

The project came about after developer Hui Chen purchased the development site last December for just under $10 million. A set of two-story buildings on the street will have to be demolished to make room for the residential building. An adjacent church, St. Michael’s Catholic Church, will also have space in the new residential building, which has been designed by Raymond Chan Architect.
