LIC North: Queens Blvd Muni Garage Finally In Demo
It's been a long time coming, but the hideously ugly municipal parking garage at the corner of Queens Blvd and Jackson Avenue is finally in demolition phase. Just a small but important part of the future Queens Blvd beautification plan that will include a small park just on the other side of the garage, as well as Park Avenue-like planters up and down Jackson Avenue, as well as other improvements. The muni garage lot will house an 800,000sf office building, part of Tishman Speyer's ambitious 3.2 Mil square foot Gotham Center development.
