BRP Companies is planning to bring two mixed-use buildings to Downtown Jamaica with a combined total of 580 residential units, according to a permit application filed with the city Wednesday.

The site is located at the corner of Archer Avenue and Sutphin Boulevard in Jamaica. The building at 147-22 Archer Avenue will have 450 units and stand 26 stories tall, while the one at 147-34 Archer Avenue will include 130 apartments and rise 14 stories.

Between them, the buildings will have a total of nearly 523,000 square feet of residential space, 96,121 square feet of commercial space and 17,375 square feet set aside as a community facility.

In the taller building, the first three floors will hold retail space, the filings show. A church will occupy the two-story base of the shorter property.

The Midtown-based development firm specializes in affordable housing and plans to include a range of price points in the two buildings, co-founder Meredith Marshall told The Real Deal earlier this month.

The developer picked up the 50,000-square-foot development site for $19.5 million from the Greater Jamaica Development Corporation this year. It will break ground on the site in December.

FXFOWLE is the architect of record on the project.

BRP is also renovating 63 apartment buildings in New York as part of an initiative to spruce up the area’s affordable housing. It acquired the bulidings from local nonprofit East New York Urban Youth Services for $100 million in 2013.
