Following a $9 million renovation, Flushing, Queens, event venue Terrace on the Park debuted this week, just in time for the holiday party season. Initially built as a restaurant and heliport for the 1964 World's Fair, the venue's T-shaped towers stand 120 feet over the fairgrounds. Renovations include the addition of the Promenade Level into the function space inventory; it previously was used as storage space. That floor now features a pair of meeting rooms that each hold 200 for a reception, or can be combined. The venue's upgrade also included the addition of height-enhanced coffered ceilings and handcrafted plaster panels, custom-built bars, LED lighting, and carpeting in cool, contemporary colors. In addition, the rooftop has been reconfigured with two-tone stonework and new landscaping.
