In the latest flurry of development action happening in Long Island City, a 355-foot mixed-use development is gearing up to transform the vacant site at 29-00 Northern Boulevard. Zand Development LLC have filed permits with the city’s Department of Buildings to construct a mixed-use tower that will offer retail space on the ground, second, and third floors along with residential apartments on the upper floors, reports New York YIMBY.

Per the application, the building will be designed by Li Architect Associate and will encompass roughly 65,710 square feet of space, with the bulk of that being allotted to residential space. The building will offer just 82 apartments— likely rentals— that will average around 678 square feet each. The fourth floor will hosts a series of amenity spaces that include bike storage.

It hasn’t been revealed yet how apartment sizes will range and how much they’ll go from but those things tend to come out later, once construction is under way. The building will be located just a block away from the E, M, and R trains at the Queens Plaza subway station.

An anticipated completion date has not been announced but we’ll keep you posted.
