The Marcal Group is moving forward with plans for a new mixed-use project on the Rockaway Beach waterfront, according to a permit application filed with the city Friday.

The Brooklyn-based developer, led by Mark Caller, filed plans for a 160,312-square-foot, mixed-use building that will rise at 137 Beach 116th Street and extend to Beach 117th Street. The nine-story building will hold 149 apartments across 142,660 square feet of residential space, with a retail unit on the ground floor.

The building will include attended parking for 119 cars and two recreation area for residents, one along 116th StreetAnd A Second On 117th Street.

Caller bought the site, which will sit along the area’s primary commercial strip, for $5 million last year and filed demolition plans for the Beach Club formerly on the site in March.

The Marcal Group also submitted a “test-the-market” condo offering plan for a 90-unit building at 147 Beach 116th Street.

The Rockaway Times reported in August that Caller has plans for four buildings in the area, at least one of which will be affordable senior housing.

A representative for Marcal was not immediately available for comment.
