Permits have been filed for a 23-story mixed-used building on Queens Boulevard in Rego Park.

The building, which will be located at 98-04 Queens Blvd, will include 116 apartments and 411 parking spaces.

The site is currently an empty lot, since all the previous buildings have been demolished. The site use to house several small businesses, including a bodega and a pharmacy.

The new building will be 265 feet tall and include approximately 25,000 square feet of commercial space and 30,000 square feet of community facility space.

Parking garages with attendants will be located on the sub cellar, second floor and third floor levels. Storage for a total of 63 bikes will also be located in the cellar and on the third floor.

The retail space will be located in the cellar and on the first floor. Two berths for trucks to load and unload goods will also be located on the first floor.

A lobby for the community facility will be located on the first floor. The community facility itself will be located on floors four and five.

A residential lobby will also be located on the first floor. The residential units will be located on the fifth floor as well on floors six through 23.

Residents will have access to a yoga studio, a teen room and a children’s room on the fourth floor, as well as a rooftop terrace over the third floor.

The property is owned by RB Realty Capital LLC, and SLCE Architects is responsible for the design.

A different developer, Bahar Corporation, filed permits to construct a 7-story building on the property in 2014. The company demolished the existing buildings on the site, but the 7-story building was never constructed. 

R.B. Realty Capital bought the property for $12 million in January.

I think it’s terrible that they allowed for such a tall building to be built on the site. I used to live on Saunders and the tenants that face the Queen’s Blvd side will have their view blocked completely. This new building is not cool.

Just what we need. More people. Glad they’ll have a parking space while most of us have had spaces taken away by the 6 Bicyclists who use the bike Lanes in a 24 hour period. Means more people on the train too. Oh joy.
