Although permits have yet to be filed for Woodside Green, a massive mixed-use complex in Elmhurst, Queens, new renderings reveal how the development might take shape if approved by city agencies. The Hakimian Organization is credited as the developer of the property following its purchase of construction rights from Piermont Properties in 2018.
The construction site is comprised of four adjacent parcels of land currently occupied by a variety of low-rise residential and commercial-zoned buildings. The official addresses for the property are 72-01 and 72-17 Queens Boulevard.
EDI International has remained onboard as the design architect for Woodside Green. Proposed components for the new 12-story building include 1,066,127 square feet of residential area, a community facility in excess of 15,000 square feet, and approximately 76,000 square feet of commercial space. The residential area could include 220 market-rate apartments. An on-site parking garage is designed to accommodate 175 vehicles.
The exterior of the building resembles two stacked cubes with what appears to be a central, multi-story atrium and entryway in the center. The mixed-material façade is comprised of glass and possibly a dual-toned cementitious material with a playfully asymmetric series of windows.
If approved, completion is anticipated for 2021.
