The owner of the building containing Mexican restaurant La Adelita will be bulldozing the site, according to a recent filing with Buildings Dept.
Owner Ovidiu Mihu filed for a demolition permit to raze the three-story building at 52-22 Roosevelt Avenue on May 12 which was approved.
Mihu filed plans in January to build a five-story building on the site, consisting of retail, residential and medical office space.
According to those plans, the proposed building would have 3,062 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, as well as a lobby.
The second floor would contain 4,538 square feet of medical offices, and the third through fifth floors would hold a total of 10 apartments, or 10,600 square feet of residential space.
The plans also show that the new building would have a finished rooftop for the use of residents, though the site is right beside the 7 train.
