ELMHURST — Developers are planning to build multi-family homes on an empty lot near new "luxury" apartments in the former St. John's Hospital, according to papers filed with the Department of Buildings.
The plot of land by Queens Boulevard sold in October 2014 to Hoffman Drive Realty LLC for $2.75 million, according to city records.
Tan Architects — who also built Elm East on Queens Boulevard, and are developing Elm West across the street — filed plans on Jan. 14 to build four homes at 57-34 Hoffman Dr. through 57-28 Hoffman Dr., off 57th Road, according to the Department of Buildings.
The homes will be four-family.
Those plans are awaiting approval by the DOB, according to an employee at Tan Architects who declined to give her name.
The empty lot is around the corner from the former St. John's Hospital, which closed in 2009 and will become "luxury" apartments with roof decks and community space, developers said.
"Queens Pointe" will eventually include 144 studio, one-and two-bedroom rental apartments, and eight top-floor penthouses that have 15-foot ceilings and private roof decks.
Commercial space will include ground-floor and basement shops, and community space on the second floor.
