New York Lions Group’s Albert Shirian is planning an 18-story residential tower in Long Island City, according to a new permit application filed with the city today.

Shirian’s plans for the site at 42-06 27th Street, right by the Queensboro Plaza subway stop, call for a roughly 90,000-square-foot tower that will house 110 units. The building will include a 8,645-square-foot commercial component, as well as a 55-car parking lot.

The developer bought the property in 2005, together with an adjacent lot a year later, for a total of $8 million.

NY Lions Group could not immediately be reached on Friday morning.

Shirian is also developing a 14-story residential tower on Lexington Avenue between 33rd and 34th Streets.

Queens-based Raymond Chan is the architect of record. Chan, among other projects in the borough, is also designing a massive development in Sunset Park.
