The building boom near the 52nd Street subway station shows no signs of abating.
A developer filed plans Tuesday to build a 5-story, 10-unit apartment building on 52nd Street, on the small block between Roosevelt Avenue and Queens Boulevard.
The site, with the official address of 43-30 52nd St., is across the street from a number of development sites. Plans are currently in the works for an eight story, 60-unit apartment complex to be spread across 43-13 to 42-21 52nd St.
The five-story building will consist of 2,700 square feet of commercial space; 600 square feet for a community facility (such as a Pre-K or medical offices); and 7,700 for residential use.
The entire structure will be 55 feet tall and will include a cellar and planned recreational area on the rooftop.
The commercial space is likely to be used for a restaurant or bar and will be in the cellar, according to the plans. Medical offices are likely to be on the first floor.
Apartment units will take up the second through fifth floors.
HFG Management bought the property in August for 2 million.
Many buildings have risen in the immediate area in recent times.
The site backs onto to a seven-story, 29-unit development at 51-25 Queens Blvd. that was completed in 2017 on the north west corner of Queens Boulevard and 52nd Street. Across the street is Icon 52, a 9-story 66-unit building that was completed in 2014.
On the south west corner of 52nd and Roosevelt Avenue a seven-story mixed use building—consisting of 40 apartments, offices and stores—is currently being built.
At the corner of 51st and Roosevelt, a 17-story building is slated to go up.
