A nonprofit focused on helping homeless youths is planning a 60-unit building in Hudson Yards.

Covenant House filed plans for a 12-story building at 460 West 41st Street on Tuesday with the Department of Buildings. The project would span about 53,000 square feet and replace a smaller eight-story youth homeless shelter.

The nonprofit has owned the property since 1984, according to property records. Earlier this year, it went under contract to sell part of the site to the Gotham Organization for $78 million, a sale that should close before the end of 2021. Gotham is planning a mixed-use, mixed-income property for the site but agreed to first build Covenant a new facility.

Covenant House was accused of inflating the number of teens it served in 2016 to secure more funding from the city, which stalled the Economic Development Corporation’s attempt to find a developer for the site. Covenant denied the accusations.
