An anonymous Floral Park, N.Y.-based LLC has filed applications for a six-story, 10-unit mixed-use building at 147-07 88th Avenue, in downtown Jamaica. The project will measure 13,578 square feet. It will feature a 484-square-foot retail space on the ground floor, followed by residential units on the second through sixth floors. The apartments should average 1,309 square feet apiece, which suggests condominiums are likely in the works. Manish S. Savani’s Jamaica-based architecture firm is the architect of record. A two-story building must first be demolished. Permits were filed to do so in August.
