A Brooklyn contractor is planning to develop a new, 95,000-square-foot mixed-use building at 2885 West 15th Street in Coney Island, according to a Department of Buildings application filed Saturday.

Red Hook-based ARC Electrical & Mechanical Contractors submitted plans for an eight-story building that will feature 80,269 square feet of residential space across 86 units, according to the DOB filing. The project will also include 12,730 square feet of commercial space with four retail stores on the lower level.

The building will hold 19 apartment units on each of the second through fourth floors, as well as 14 units on the fifth floor, 11 units on the sixth floor and four units on the seventh floor. It will also house 2,441 square feet of community space, according to the filing.

ARC Electrical acquired the vacant residential lot, on the corner of Mermaid Avenue and West 15th Street, from Brooklyn-based Gregan Equities in 2012. The contractor, which has developed several Brooklyn projects in the past – including an 80-unit rental tower at 574 Fourth Avenue – did not return requests for comment.

Noesis Designs Architecture, the project’s architect of record, could not be reached for comment.

Rubin Schron’s Cammeby’s International filed plans in January for a 40-story, 544-unit mixed-use building on Coney Island.
