About Nan Shan Local Development Corporation
Nan Shan Local Development Corporation is a not-for-profit corporation formed in 2000 to develop, operate, and maintain commercial and recreation facilities that relieve unemployment and promote job opportunities. The corporation is affiliated with the Chinese-American Planning Council, Inc. (CPC), a New York not-for-profit corporation founded in 1965 to provide social services and educational, cultural, and recreational programs for the Chinese American community, serving over 35 programs in Manhattan, Queens, and Brooklyn.
In 2000, the Nan Shan Local Development Corporation acquired the property at 133-12 41st Avenue, Flushing, New York 11355. Since 1988, CPC has been operating a senior citizen program at various locations in Flushing, Queens, including at the Site under the name CPC Queens Nan Shan Senior Center.
The goal of the project is to provide a wide variety of services for senior citizens in Queens and its surrounding areas, including meals, case assistance, entitlement applications, ESL and naturalization classes, and other recreational and educational activities.
NYCEDC is working with the CPC to acquire a newer and larger facility for their Queens Nan Shan Senior Center; the existing facility is too small to accommodate its programs for the growing population of seniors in the area. The new facility aims triple the size of the center. This project includes the construction of a ten-story, ~30,000 square foot facility, of which the CPC will occupy 11,118 square feet.
