A joint venture between affordable housing developer BFC Partners and the NYC Partnership Housing Development Fund filed permits for a 21-story, 139-unit rental complex in Downtown Jamaica.

Plans for the site, at 153-19 Jamaica Avenue, call for a 104,300-square-foot structure on a 13,000-square-foot lot, according to permits filed with the city’s Department of Buildings on Friday. The development would be split between 99,100 square feet of residential space and 5,200 square feet of commercial space. Planned amenities include a tenant lounge, a laundry room and a gym. There will also be retail on the ground floor and a leasing office on the second floor.

The project builds on BFC’s portfolio of large residential developments. The company is behind the massive Bedford Union Armory project, which is expected to contain 400 rental units once it’s completed. BFC filed plans for the second residential building in the complex, a 60-unit building on President Street, last June.

The company, along with partners L+M Development, Taconic Investment Partners and Goldman Sachs, is also building a 14-story mixed-use building at 202 Broome Street in the Lower East Side. The property, part of the Essex Crossing complex, will contain 83 condo units at its upper floors.

The joint venture acquired the Jamaica property for $12.3 million. The proposed structure, which would stand 222 feet tall, will replace a two-story retail building. Demolition permits have yet to be filed.

BFC did not immediately respond to request for comment.
