Construction for the $850 million Flushing Commons project has already begun. Located just across from the offices of Flushing Kent Realty, the old city-owned Municipal lot will turn into a mixed-used destination.
“Flushing Commons will bring open space, a new community venue, residences, and retail opportunities to Downtown Flushing in Queens.”
