The Greater Jamaica Development Corporation (GJDC) has announced a joint venture between BRP Companies and Wharton Properties to purchase and develop a site located at 90-02 168th Street. The open-air parking lot just north of Jamaica Avenue will become a 500,000-square-foot development with more than 300 mixed-income residential units with 70,000 square feet of retail space.
