Three-and-a-half years ago, the Department of City Planning enlisted Monadnock Development to build a mixed-use project in downtown Flushing, Queens. Located at 133-45 41st Avenue and dubbed One Flushing, the development has 22,000 square feet of retail space, along with 232 all-affordable apartments, nearly 40 percent of which is set aside as supportive senior housing. Including low- and middle-income units, the lottery for these residences has just opened, ranging from $548/month studios to $2,302/month three-bedrooms. In addition to being just around the corner from the 7 train and adjacent to the Flushing-Main Street LIRR Station, the building offers a 156-space public parking lot, 24-hour attended lobby, laundry room, bike storage, tenant lounge and terrace, fitness center, and rooftop garden.

The building wasd esigned by Berheimer Architecture. It will be the new home for Asian Americans for Equality (AAFE). As they explain, “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.”
Renaissance Economic Development Corporation, an affiliate of AAFE, has made a $2 million commitment to helping small businesses lease retail space in the development. The project topped off at 10 stories in March and is expected to be complete in early 2019.
