Real Estate Company; New York
One of the largest projects in the NYC Voluntary Cleanup Program, located at the intersection of 39th Avenue and Prince Street in Flushing, Queens, was formerly occupied by an auto body repair shop, a gasoline filling station, and a parking lot. Roux performed the comprehensive environmental investigation for the property, including testing of soil and groundwater. Remedial action has since been completed at the property, as well as the development of a 346,000 square foot mixed-use development. The development includes a 12-story, 43-unit residential structure and a 10-story, 168-room Hyatt Place Hotel structure containing a 3-story retail podium and two levels of underground parking. The new building has produced approximately 140 permanent new jobs and employed over 250 construction workers. The Project was awarded two 2015 Big Apple Brownfield Awards by the NYC Brownfield Partnership.
