Flushing to get 17-story residential tower


The permits were filed by FSA’s Benjamin Clyburn under 223 Borden Ave LIC LLC. The projected completion date is unknown.

The busy Queens neighborhood is home to other plans for large-scale projects. In 2021 developers F&T Group and SCG America revealed plans for the Tangram, an $800 million, 1.2 million-square-foot project comprising retail stores and restaurants designed to mimic the hustle and bustle of Shanghai. All tenants are reportedly required to display their names in Chinese and English. The multiphase project also includes a 132-unit condo building, a Renaissance Hotel and office condos. 

In April Flushing-based developer Chris Jiashu Xu of United Construction and Development Group bought a vacant property at 131-01 39th Ave. for $103 million from Young Nian Group, which had filed permits to build a 664,000-square-foot project with two residential towers, a hotel tower and retail space.

Xu also owns the borough’s tallest building, a condo tower called Skyline.

In September 2021 developer Richard Xia, who is being investigated by the Securities and Exchange Commission for EB-5 investor fraud, announced a 25-story Corona building project called Eastern Emerald. It is slated to include 256 hotel units and 196 condo units, plus community space. The project has yet to break ground.
