Great Neck firm New York Lions Group has been active on multiple western Queens residential developments and recently added another project.
The group filed plans with the Buildings Department to begin construction in Long Island City on a residential tower, which will be a 15-story, mixed-use commercial and residential building with 88 apartments, according to city records.
The site at 27-01 Jackson Ave., which is currently home to a gas station, will have about 7,000 square feet of commercial space and is being designed by Raymond Chan Architect.
Lions Group picked up the site for $11.6 million in 2013, according to city records.
Not long ago, the development firm refiled plans to construct an eight-story condo with 15 apartments at 42-83 Hunter St. in Long Island City.
The building will have 12,336 square feet of living space and is being designed by Flushing-based MY Architect PC.
And construction plans will begin soon on Lions Group’s 77-unit Astoria condo, blocks away from the waterfront, according to Ramin Shirian, vice president of the firm.
The new building, called The Baron, will be located at 14-07 Broadway and is expected to be completed in September of 2016.
The Baron will have 73,500 square feet of space and is replacing two auto mechanic shops. The modern, glassy building with terraces will also be designed by Raymond Chan Architect.
