Plans were filed last week for a 10-story mixed-use building to go up on the corner of 35th Street and 36th Avenue in Astoria.

The building, which will be erected at 35-01 36th Ave. will house commercial office space and community facilities, along with ground floor retail. Plans were filed with the Department of Buildings on Jan. 30.

The development will be located within the Kaufman Astoria Arts District, near the historic Kaufman Astoria Studios.

The new construction will replace two, two-story manufacturing buildings currently located at the corner site. Demolition permits were filed in November.

The new building will be 179 feet tall, with 43,423 square feet of available space; 33,375 square feet will be used for commercial office space, while the other 10,048 square feet will be for community facilities–such as medical offices.

Plans for the structure reveal medical treatment centers are slated to be housed on the third and eighth floors with office space on the remaining floors–with the exception of ground floor retail space and an enclosed second-floor parking area. The building will also have a rooftop terrace.

The property was bought in September for $5 million. Aki Todic, president of AKI Development, is listed as the owner.
