The new two-story commercial building that was planned for the former site of the popular Scobee Diner in Little Neck is nearing completion.

The frame of the first floor of the 5,612-square-foot building at 252-29 Northern Blvd. is mostly erect and workers are constructing the back and the second floor. But the new building was expected to be completed by September, according to the construction site poster.

A Citibank branch is expected to move in as a tenant on the first floor after the building is completed, according to past reports and designs by Nandinee Phookan Architects.

A medical office was also set for the second floor of the building.

A Schuckman Realty advertisement was posted about available space. Calls and emails to Schuckman Realty were not returned.

The city’s Board of Standards and Appeals approved a variance for the new building at the former Scobee Diner site in January, allowing the new owner, Lion Bee Equities, to move the former restaurant’s parking lot to the back of the property.

There will be 17 parking spaces at the new lot, according to city records.

Scobee Diner closed in 2010 after the restaurant owners failed to reach an agreement on purchasing the site from the landowners.
