Though much of the large-scale development in Queens has been concentrated in neighborhoods like Long Island City and Astoria, a new apartment building in Jackson Heights will add a 14-story complex to an area that includes mostly smaller structures.
Roosevelt Arc, located at 71-17 Roosevelt Ave., is a project by Socius Development and Weber Real Estate that will bring 139 units to Jackson Heights. According to Weber Real Estate’s website, the project will cater to residents who already live in the neighborhood by constructing “a diverse mix of modestly sized and competitively priced units.”
In addition to 95,000 square feet of residential space, the building will include 8,400 square feet for retail on the ground floor and 19,000 square feet of community facility space on the second floor, YIMBY first reported.
The building will be located right along the elevated 7 tracks, and residents will have access to the E,F, M and R as well.
Amenities will include multiple lounges, a screening room, a children’s play room, an internet cafe, yoga deck, pool table, bicycle storage and 163 parking spots.
Developers will also provide 30,000 square feet of common outdoor space including multiple outdoor roofdecks and an outdoor courtyard. Marvel Architects are responsible for the design.
