A two-family house on Pople Avenue near Main Street in Flushing is set to be demolished, with a developer filing building permits to replace it with a 7-story building that will include 39 apartments and space for a community facility.

Feng Jin Wang, of East West Mansion LLC., plans to build a 39-unit development at 132-15 Pople Ave. The building, according to the plans, would be 70-feet tall and include 34,960 square feet, with 26,269 square feet designated for residential space and 8,691 square feet for community facility space. 

The development would also include a cellar, a 30-foot-long rear yard, and 20 enclosed parking spaces. Plans also make room for 20 bicycle spaces.

The property is located between Saull Street and College Point Boulevard and is near the Flushing Main Street subway station.

Demolition permits were filled in September 2023 and an estimated completion date has not been announced yet.
