After almost a decade of attempts, plans have begun to formalize for a residential property on a currently empty lot on Bergen Street.

According to YIMBY, 346 Bergen Street (between 3rd and 4th Avenues) is slated to become a six-story building which could include 24 units of “affordable” apartments.

Although plans for a building began in 2004, the project never took shape. A community garden previously occupied the now vacant lot.

Angelo Ng and Anthony Ng’s Architects Studio P.C. will be the designers for the building, who have focused much of their work in Queens, including the Queens Boulevard Hotel in Woodside, Flushing Point Plaza in Flushing, and Mosque Masjid Abu Huraira in Maspeth.

The architects — along with the developers WHRF Bergen Street Realty — are planning a six-story, 59-foot tall building which will encompass 20,000 square feet. The rental apartments will average 800 square feet, YIMBY reports.

The developer and builders are working with the Department of Housing Preservation and Development, however the level of the area median income has not yet been announced.

The team estimates a completion date sometime during the second half of 2017.
