A partnership between the Chetrit Group and Queens developer Mount Sinai Properties pre-filed permits to build a 122-unit apartment complex at the former site of the Queens Motor Inn.

The partners are looking to build an 11-story residential building at 43-21 64th Street in Woodside, just a few blocks the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway. The planned structure would contain 122 apartments, according to documents filed with the Department of Buildings. Plans call for a nearly 99,000-square-foot property with about 95,000 square feet for residential space and 3,400 square feet of commercial space. Amenities at the property include recreation rooms on the eighth floor and a rooftop space, according to the plans. The ground floor commercial space is earmarked for a car showroom.

Chetrit and Mount Sinai acquired the property, which used to have the address of 64-11 Queens Boulevard, for $13.4 million in August of last year. Demolition permits were filed for the two-story building on the site in August of 2016. The property used to house the Queens Motor Inn, a motel that rented rooms by the hour.

The Chetrit Group previously filed plans to build an eight-acre industrial complex in Maspeth. The property, at 57-46 56th Street, consists of several warehouses that straddle tracks used by the Long Island Railroad. The company previously said that it intends to build housing on the site. Chetrit’s Queens holdings also includes a former Entemann’s bakery outlet at 70-50 Queens Boulevard and the former Mary Immaculate Hospital at 150-13 89th Avenue. Meanwhile, Mount Sinai Properties, which is headed by Gadi Ben Hamo, also owns 72-12 Queens Boulevard in Maspeth.

Chetrit and Mount Sinai did not immediately return requests for comment.
