A developer filed plans last week to build a new five story mixed use building in Long Island City.
According to the plans, the building at 2-22 51st Avenue would stand about 50 feet tall, and would have ten residential units on the second through fifth floors with 11,507 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor.
The plans show that there would be a total of 8,933 square feet of residential space, meaning each apartment would be about 893 square feet on average.
The first floor would also have a residential lobby, and there would be storage space and a laundry room in the cellar.
The new building will take the place of a small warehouse building currently on the site, which is about a block from Hunters Point
