Permits have been filed for a 17-story mixed-use building at 5123 Beach Channel Drive in Far Rockaway, Queens. Located between Beach 53rd Street and Beach 54th Street, the interior lot is a short walk to the Beach 44 Street-Frank Avenue subway station, serviced by the A train. Arker Companies under the Peninsula Rockaway LP is listed as the owner behind the applications. The developer recently filed permits for 5119 Beach Channel Drive, a neighboring new construction site also part of the Peninsula Hospital Redevelopment.
The proposed 180-foot-tall development will yield 193,210 square feet, with 140,000 square feet designated for residential space and 21,782 square feet for commercial space. The building will have 194 residences, most likely rentals based on the average unit scope of 721 square feet. The concrete-based structure will also have 133 enclosed parking spaces.
Ariel Aufgang of Aufgang Architects is listed as the architect of record.
Demolition permits will likely not be needed as the lot is vacant. An estimated completion date has not been announced.
