Demolition is coming for six small businesses along Woodhaven Boulevard, making way for a residential build. One of those businesses is the Joe Abbracciamento Restaurant, which shuttered earlier this year. Other businesses include, according to Queens Chronicle, a family-owned dog grooming shop, Classic Designers salon, a balloon shop and a spa. The only biz still open is Community Physical Therapy, at 62-84 Woodhaven Boulevard.
The Criterion Group paid $9,000,000 for the entire block and will replace everything with a seven-story, 120-unit residential development. The DOB has not yet issued demolition permits, but a Criterion rep expects it to happen within the next two month. Construction on the development will last around two years.
