A large, corner site in Rego Park, Queens is set to welcome a 23-story residential tower, making it one of the tallest structures in the neighborhood. YIMBY first reported on the development, which will be located at 98-04 Queens Boulevard, and the construction site seems to span half a block on Queens Boulevard between 65th Road and 66th Avenue.
Plans filed with the city’s Department of Building list SLCE Architects as the architect of record. The 23-story tower will have a total of 116 apartments, which will average nearly 1,200 square feet. YIMBY says this indicates that the project will be condos.
In addition to the apartments, the building will have ground-floor retail, a community facility that spans a little over 30,000 square feet, and a massive car garage that will fit 411 vehicles.
The project is being developed by RB Realty Capital, which purchased the site for $12 million earlier this year. Previous plans at the site called for a seven-story apartment building, so the new structure has more than tripled in size.
