Residential Conversion and Roof Addition for 5-33 48th Avenue

5-33-48th-avenue
Construction is underway on the brick building at 5-33 48th Avenue, between 5th Street and Vernon Boulevard in Hunters Point. The DOB issued permits at the beginning of this year to convert the manufacturing building into a mixed use build with residential and ground-floor commercial space. It also approved plans for a two-story vertical addition on the roof and parking in the cellar. A building application from several years ago proposed 36 interior units. This building has been in pretty bad shape for some time, but it looks like it has plenty of potential as a residential development. Here’s to hoping the two-story roof addition doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb. GMAP
