<![CDATA[TKD Helps to Revitalize Flushing, Queens Neighborhood Through Construction Work on Landmark Theater]]> TKD is proud to be a part of the transformation of the long abandoned RKO Keith Theater in Flushing, Queens. After shuttering its doors in 1984, the building, of which portions of its interior were designated as a landmark, has been through a series of owners, criminal activity, vandalism and general disrepair.

Our client, Xin Development, which purchased the property in 2016, is carefully dismantling the landmarked interiors, which will be restored off site and reinstalled in the new building. The dilapidated eyesore will be replaced with a gleaming residential building, bringing new life and vitality to this block and the Flushing, Queens neighborhood.
