One Flushing, our new inter-generational housing and retail project, has reached its full height on the way to completion in early 2019.
AAFE is developing the exciting new community at 133-45 41st Avenue in Queens along with HANAC and Monadnock Construction. A topping off celebration was recently held at the 10-story building. When finished, One Flushing will include 232 affordable apartments, including supportive senior housing, ample spaces for small businesses, community facilities and AAFE’s Flushing headquarters. There’s also a 156-car public parking garage.
Retail leasing recently kicked off for more than 22,000 square feet on the ground floor in the bustling area.,just across from the Flushing-Main Street LIRR Station and around the corner from the 7 train. Spaces range in size from 300 to 6,000 square feet. [Click here for more leasing information.]
AAFE’s affiliate, Renaissance Economic Development Corporation, has created a $2 million fund to help qualified small businesses lease space in the new project. For information about support services available from Renaissance, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Frank Dubinsky, vice president of Monadnock Development, told local blog, QNS, “One Flushing represents an incredible opportunity for the neighborhood to bring community, commerce, and convenience together around a transit hub. We’re thrilled to open One Flushing in early 2019 and look forward to welcoming retail tenants that contribute to its vibrancy and the Flushing community.”
The building was designed by Berheimer Architecture with SLCE serving as executive architect. The site is bordered by College Point Boulevard, Main Street and the Long Island Rail Road. The project will comply with Enterprise Green Community Standards and will feature energy-efficient and sustainable enhancements, including rooftop photovoltaic solar panels, low-flow water fixtures, Energy Star appliances in all apartments and individual thermostatic climate controls with energy-efficient air conditioning units.
The apartments will also have large reinforced windows to reduce noise from the nearby LIRR station. In the complex, 66 apartments will be reserved for very low-income seniors and 165 will be slated for low-, middle- and moderate-income households. One Flushing’s resident amenities include a gym, community room, laundry rooms, a 6,000-square-foot second-floor terrace and a green roof with rooftop farm.
AAFE will offer a full range of community and immigrant services at One Flushing. Our affiliates, Renaissance Economic Development Corporation and AAFE Community Development Fund, will also have offices in the building.
