A swans development in Swansea, Queens, has received a new lease on life.
Developer John Chapple announced Tuesday that the new developer’s new development on the former Swans property will have four floors of luxury condos, one store, restaurants and apartments.
The swans were purchased by Chinese developer Jindong, who also purchased the property in 2012.
The development will include more than a dozen restaurants and more than 150 residential units, including one hotel with rooftop pools.
Chapple said the new development will “recover much of the Swans’ lost footprint.”
“The Swans had built up a lot of a legacy and it was time to move forward,” Chapple told the Associated Press.
The Swan development will be one of several developments on the site.
The city is looking at more than 50 residential units and some 20,000 square feet of retail space.
Chapple said he has already been in talks with local governments about the property.
He said the developers are working on a proposal for the property that will be “fantastic.”
Chapple’s company, The Swans Group, is one of a group of developers that have expressed interest in the property, according to the AP.
The site is located just off the corner of New York Avenue and West 14th Street, just east of the riverfront.
