Monadnock Development filed plans for its One Flushing mixed-use residential development on a city-owned site in the Queens neighborhood, with a new permit application detailing a slightly larger project than previously indicated.

The nearly 227,000-square-foot development at 133-55 41st Avenue — part of the de Blasio administration’s plans to build more affordable housing on public property — will hold 232 units across almost 184,000 square feet of residential space, according to plans filed Monday with the city’s Department of Buildings.

This marks an increase from the 208 units previously slated for the rental project. The earlier unit count allocated 60 apartments for senior citizens and 147 units for families with varying income levels.

The 10-story building, which will rise on a city-owned parking lot, is also slated to hold nearly 29,000 square feet of commercial space, including ground-floor retail, and an almost 14,000-square-foot community facility, per the filing.

There will be 15 apartments on the second floor of the property, while the third-through-ninth floors of the building will hold 31 apartments each. The 10th floor will feature an exercise room, community room and outdoor recreation space designated as a “rooftop farm,” according to Monadnock’s website.

In addition to ground-floor retail, the first floor will house the community facility – meant to “provide senior supportive care services,” per Monadnock’s website — an exhibition gallery space, office space and the residential lobby.

The building will also feature bicycle storage facilities capable of holding 135 bikes and attended parking for up to 30 cars.

The city selected Gowanus-based Monadnock’s proposal for the property, submitted jointly with the nonprofits Asian Americans for Equality and HANAC Inc., in April 2015. The developer is behind the Carmel Place “micro-apartments” project in Kips Bay, which will feature 55 apartments ranging from 265 to 360 square feet each.

Bernheimer Architecture is designing the project, with SLCE Architects serving as the architect of record, as per the filing. Monadnock and SLCE did not return requests for comment, while Bernheimer declined to comment.
