Plans have been filed for a six-story building at the current site of a two-story home on 44th Street.

The permits, filed yesterday, call for a 70 foot building with 11 units at 41-26 44th St. in a project spanning 10,000 square feet.

The new building permits follow demolition permits filed for the location early last month. The site currently has a 30 foot building with a total of two dwelling units.

The six-story building will also be next to a nine-story, 17-unit building that was completed three years ago and shares a similar path to the new development. The nine-story building had also once been the site of a two-story house.

The development site is owned by Charlie and Stella Chen, who purchased the property last year for $1.5 million.

The owners did not immediately respond to questions on the development’s timeline.

Sen. Ramos delivers potential death blow to Mets owner’s dream of a casino alongside Citi Field

State Senator Jessica Ramos dealt a serious blow Tuesday to New York Mets owner Steve Cohen’s dream of building a massive casino and entertainment complex on the parking lot adjoining Citi Field where Shea Stadium once stood.

Ramos announced she would not support the $8 billion Metropolitan Park proposal, rejecting major pressure from her colleagues in government, including Queens Borough President Donovan Richards, and community leaders from nearby neighborhoods, who urged her to support permitted use legislation that would be required to build the complex on state-owned public parkland.
