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.

Plans for construction on a luxury Astoria condo building blocks away from the waterfront will begin shortly as demolition of the old properties on the site is nearing completion.

Developer New York Lions Group hopes to begin working on the eight-story, 77-unit condominium called The Baron, at 14-07 Broadway in January, following approvals from the Department of Buildings. The building is expected to be completed by September 2016, according to Ramin Shirian, vice president of Lions Group.

The 73,500-square-foot building will stretch 182 feet wide from the corner of 14th Street and replace two auto mechanical shops. One was already leveled and demolition will commence shortly on the other.

The Raymond Chan Architect-designed building will feature a modern glass façade with terraces attached on each residence, offering unobstructed views of the Manhattan skyline.

The building, which will be marketed by Modern Spaces, will have a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom units, measuring approximately 600, 1,000 and 1,550 square feet respectively.

The ground floor will have duplex apartments that mostly measure 1,000 square feet each, but there will be two duplex units with about 1,500 square feet.

The Baron will be loaded with amenities, including a garden on the second floor terrace, community common space on the roof, a children’s room and play area, a gym and bicycle racks.

There will be a doorman for the building and pets are allowed. There are also 41 parking spaces underground.
