A developer filed plans last week for an 8 story, 25-unit complex to go up on in Sunnyside, according to Building Department records.
The building, which would go up at 41-34 45th Street, would replace an existing 2-story brick house. The developer, Juan Rodriguez of Sunnyside-based Capira Realty, obtained a demolition permit on March 1 to demolish the property.
The new building, which would be 80 feet in height, would consist of a community facility on the first floor alongside one apartment and the lobby area, according to the plans. Floors two through seven would each contain four units, with the top floor consisting of two units.
Rodriguez said at this point the units are like to be condos as opposed to rentals.
The building would also contain 13 parking spaces and bicycle parking.
Rodriguez said that he aims to start demolishing the house in about 3 months, with the entire project taking a little over 2 years. He said he is still waiting on Con Edison and other city agencies to give him the green light before he can commence with demolition.
