  • A rendering of Macedonia Plaza and the parking lot at 37-08 Union Street

    Despite overwhelming support from local officials, the planned Macedonia Complex in Queens continues to anger Flushing businesses because it lacks parking, the New York Daily News reported. BRP Companies and Macedonia African Methodist Episcopal Church closed last month on a $49.6 million loan to begin building a 14-story, 143-unit affordable housing development on a parking lot at 37-08 Union Street. Not only does it eliminate existing parking for customers the 150 or so shops that line Union Street, but it also fails to include any replacements. [more]

  • Flushing Commons

    The City Planning Commission voted today to approve Flushing Commons, the Rockefeller Group’s five-acre mixed-use development in Queens, and the nearby Macedonia Plaza affordable housing project. Plans for the $850 million Flushing Commons complex call for 600 residential units and 420,000 square feet of office and retail space. Macedonia Plaza, a project of the Macedonian African Methodist Episcopal Church, is slated to have 140 affordable housing units, ground-floor retail and a YMCA. In a statement, Mayor Bloomberg praised the outcome, which he said “moves us one step closer to reinvigorating downtown Flushing with new housing and retail options, hotel or office space and much-needed additional parking for the area’s residents and visitors.” Bloomberg added that the projects will create 2,000 permanent jobs and 2,600 construction jobs. The pair of development proposals will now move on to the City Council for final approval. TRD
