At its Jan. 9 meeting, Community Board 7 voted unanimously in favor of an application to build 22 single-family homes along a Whitestone street that is not legally mapped.

The houses would be built along the soon-to-be constructed “Sullivan Drive” within The Bridges at Whitestone — a development of custom-built homes on a 6-acre plot of land between 150th Street, 6th Avenue and Powells Cove Boulevard. The 22 homes in the application are part of a total of 45 homes planned for the location.

 

Board Chairperson Eugene Kelty said the application was previously tabled while the board waited for documents from the Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Fire Department of New York (FDNY) addressing concerns regarding the street. Prior to the Jan. 9 meeting, the board received the documentation.

According to Eric Palatnik, attorney for the applicant, the 22 homes would be built along Sullivan Drive and the development will not be gated.

“It will not be a gated community,” Palatnik said. “To the naked eye, it will look like every other street.”

Board member Kevin Shields Sr. made a motion to approve the application. The vote was unanimously in favor.

The application still must go on to the Board of Standards and Appeals.

The Bridges at Whitestone project is being led by O’Sullivan Builders and Developers — a Whitestone-based company — and broke ground in November 2015. According to their website, houses at the development start at $1,628,000.

Situated in the northernmost corner of Queens, the development’s name is inspired by its position between the Whitestone and Throgs Neck bridges.
