UPDATED, 2:45 p.m., Dec. 30: Long Island-based residential developers the Benjamin Companies and the Beechwood Organization are seeking to a build a new 126-unit mixed-use residential building as part of their Arverne by the Sea oceanfront community in Rockaway, Queens.

The planned seven-story building at 190 Beach 69th Street, just off Rockaway Beach Boulevard, is slated to span more than 105,000 square feet and include a restaurant and retail spaces on the ground floor, according to permit applications filed Wednesday with the city’s Department of Buildings.

The upper six floors of the new structure will each house 21 residential apartment units, according to the filing, while the building’s ground floor will also accommodate open parking and “residential support spaces” like a lobby and mailroom.

Garden City-based Benjamin Companies partnered with Jericho-based Beechwood Organization to build Arverne by the Sea, which holds around 2,300 homes in the Rockaway neighborhood of Arverne, according to the development’s website.

The plans represent “the first portion of the multifamily phase of Arverne by the Sea,” project executive Gerald Romski said in a statement. The developers expect to break ground on the multifamily project early next year.

Midtown-based Urbahn Architects, the project’s architect of record, declined to comment.
