The Astoria residential boom rolls along, as a developer revealed plans for a 13-story apartment building and medical office just a few blocks from Alma Realty’s Astoria Cove Phase 1 site.

Shan Fen Zhang of Ming & Garden Realty LLC intends to put up a building with 118 units on the site at 26-01 to 26-15 4th Street. The property will span 122,510 square feet, along with 51,470 square feet of communal space located throughout the second and third floors and the rooftop. Apartments will be on the second through thirteenth floors.

Although the permits filed today mention plans for a medical office, it is unclear where in the building the facility will be.

Massey Knakal listed the site for $18 million earlier this year, but it has not yet sold. The listing was for two industrial buildings. Demolition permits for those buildings were filed in July.

The current owner purchased the site for $6.9 million in 2012. HCD Architect will design the building.

Representatives for Ming & Garden Realty were not immediately available for comment.
