The real estate firm Robert K. Futterman and Associates has announced plans for a new development that will take the place of the Burger King on Northern Boulevard in Bayside.

The proposed three-story retail building at 222-10 Northern Blvd. includes plans for a 220-car parking structure and four floors including 39,600 square feet of commercial space, if the lower level is included.

RKF said it would be doing all the marketing and leasing as the exclusive agent for the property owner, which property records show is still Creative Foods Corp., a Burger King franchisee.

The developer for the project has not yet been announced, and no formal zoning variance proposals have yet come before Community Board 11.

RKF, which has offices across the country and works with international clients, said it is excited to work on the project considering the high traffic on Northern Boulevard and the appeal the location might have to businesses.

“Bayside is a high-density neighborhood and a well-established trade area with strong traffic from residents, students and commuters,” RKF Executive Vice President David Rosenberg said. “This new development will be ideally suited for restaurants, grocers, health and fitness studios, furniture, home furnishings and sporting goods retailers. We are actively seeking regional and national brands to complement the strong co-tenancy along Northern and Bell boulevards that cater to this upscale neighborho­od.”

Rosenberg is going to be the marketing agent for the project, along with real estate associate Eddie Mamiye. They said the location will attract residents and commuters from around Queens and western Nassau counties.

“As a result of the growing demand for retail space, this is an excellent opportunity for the owner to redevelop this long-owned property into a higher-caliber use.”

The stand-alone fast food restaurant would be demolished if the project is approved and would be the third Burger King to leave Bayside.

Nobody shops at stores anymore though. Everyone shops online. There are a lot of retail stores going out of business because of the Internet as it is. Just look at sears and macys and toys r us. They are not doing well at all. So why put up more retail when everyone shops online anymore?

Bayside is full of empty stores and offices. Just look around. While the space is a block long, the property is very shallow. There is very little parking space as it is. Are they planning on using Oakland Lake as a parking lot?

Another total disconnect. In the first report they were touting the proximity to Mercedes dealer and Staples neither in walking distance. Even with parking, access on that corner is a nightmare. There are no residences east till Douglaston. It will be empty or nail salons, spas, cell phone stores, or medical
