Stawksi Partners filed plans Friday for a 66-story residential tower in Long Island City. The 838,000-square-foot building at 43-30 24th Street will include 921 rental apartments, 17,000 square feet of retail space, a library and an indoor swimming pool.

The site most recently housed two manufacturing warehouses used by retailers Bergdorf Goodman and To Boot New York. Stawski terminated their leases earlier this year, property records show. The Midtown-based development firm also owns an adjacent lot at 23-10 43rd Avenue.

Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is designing the building and is listed as the architect of record.

The project will add to a flurry of new apartment towers set to rise in Long Island City over the coming years. For example, Heatherwood Communities is building a 57-story tower at 42-12 28th Street – also designed by Goldstein, Hill & West – and G&M Realty is building two towers on the 5Pointz site at 22-44 Jackson Avenue.

Stawski Partners, founded by German-born Axel Stawski, owns half a dozen office buildings in Manhattan, Including 360 Madison Avenue and the Broad Financial Center at 33 Whitehall Street.
