25-01 Queens Plaza North
25-01 Queens Plaza North is replacing a two-story commercial building, which was demolished to make way for the 26-story mixed-use building. The completed project will feature 417 residential units (124 of which will be affordable), 7,000 SF of ground-floor commercial space, and access to the Queensboro Plaza subway station bridge connection. Langan helped our client secure a 20% floor area bonus in exchange for transit improvements—the first project in Queens to take advantage of this zoning incentive—and enrolled the site in the NYS Brownfield Cleanup Program. We also prepared the Environmental Assessment Statement, performed design-level surveys of the pedestrian bridge and 3D laser scanning of adjacent buildings, completed a pre-demolition hazmat survey, provided abatement design documents based on our findings, conducted a geotechnical engineering study, and collaborated with multiple city agencies.
