Several storefronts along Queens Boulevard in Rego Park could face the wrecking ball soon to make way for a single new development.
The plans, filed with the Department of Buildings on Dec. 6, call for a nine-story residential and commercial building at 92-54 Queens Blvd., just a couple of blocks away from Queens Center Mall.
The site today encompasses six stores, including Metropolis Bicycles and Shoe Repair Supplies Inc., in a single-story building built back in 1948.
The new development would see 30 apartment units in a building spanning 39,400 square feet, and includes enclosed parking for nine spaces.
The first floor will be reserved for retail and commercial use.
The property is owned by Hai Heng Luo, and is listed under Quincy Realty LLC. Records show the property was sold for $9.6 million in August.
Demolition plans for the building have yet to be filed.
The developer did not immediately respond to questions about the project by press time.
