The latest tower at the Durst Organization’s Hallets Point mega development along the Queens waterfront will be 22 stories tall and include almost 369,000 square feet of residential space, according to a permit application filed with the city’s Department of Buildings Thursday.

The roughly 395,000-square-foot building will be located at 1-02 26th Avenue and include 25,350 square feet for commercial space as well as 224 apartments. A fitness center, a party room, offices and a terrace are among the 223-foot-tall building’s amenities, the permit application shows.

Durst bought the parcel — the last one — in February for $15 million.

Dattner Architects is the architect of record, the filing shows.

Durst took control of Hallets Point in October, when the developer bought three parcels for a total of $130 million from New Jersey-based Lincoln Equities.

All told, Hallets Point will include roughly 2,400 apartments, both market-rate and affordable, span about 2.5 million square feet and cost about $1.5 billion to complete. Plans call for eight residential buildings, retail space, a public waterfront esplanade and potentially a K-8 school.

A representative for neither Durst nor Dattner was available for comment Thursday.
