Durst Organization is planning two more mixed-used buildings at its Hallets Point development along the Queens waterfront, according to permits filed with the city Friday.

The building at 26-02 1st Street would span 269,346 square feet and feature 294 units, documents show. The 26-story building will also have 2,443 square feet of commercial space, and 163 enclosed parking spaces, according to filings filed with the Department of Business.

The second building at 26-40 1st Street would hold 358 units, permit filings show. The 349,470-square foot building would also feature 6,959 square feet of commercial space.

In total, Durst is planning 2,400 apartments across seven buildings at the $1.5 billion development, its first major project outside Manhattan. In 2015, the firm filed plans for a 22-story, mixed use building at 26-01 1st Street. That building will have 224 apartments as well as amenities such as a fitness center, a party room and terraces. The developer broke ground on the project in January last year.

The uncertainty of the 421a tax break put the complex’s future in jeopardy, but the developer announced earlier this month that the return of the program would allow them move forward with the remaining six buildings planned for the site.

Davis Brody Bond is the architect of record for both buildings. A representative for Durst could not be immediately reached for comment.
