NEW YORK CITY-After years in the making, the $850 million Flushing Commons project has moved a step closer to fruition. Developers TDC Development International and the Rockefeller Group—who eight years ago announced plans to convert a 5.5-acre, city-owned parcel in Queens from a municipal parking lot into a mixed-use complex—have filed their first permit to start construction with the Department of Buildings.

The pair requested approval to spend $3.5 million to modify the parking lot for the project’s first phase, which includes construction of about 160 residential units and 350,000 square feet of retail or commercial space, according to Crain’s New York Business. It also will include a YMCA and park. Another 450 residential units and 150,000 square feet of retail or commercial space are slated for the second phase of the project, for which no starting date has been set. Rockefeller declined to comment, and TDC and the Department of Buildings could not be reached by press time.
