Far Rockaway is getting yet another development.

Red Group Management filed plans with the Department of Buildings on Wednesday for a 60-unit complex at 128 Beach 9th Street. The development would stand 17 stories tall and span about 78,000 square feet, split between 73,000 square feet of residential space and 5,000 square feet of space for a community facility.

The project would replace a one-story commercial building.

Red Group did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The company purchased 128 Beach 9th Street in 2003 for $900,000, and the property is located right by its headquarters at 148 Beach 9th Street.

Several projects are on their way to the Far Rockaway neighborhood, which the City Council unanimously voted to rezone in September. Phipps Houses is planning to replace the Far Rockaway Shopping Center with its massive Far Rockaway Village residential complex, and Related Companies is planning a 145-unit project in the neighborhood close to its Gateway Apartments complex.
