Another development is slated for Queens’ Rego Park neighborhood.

Developer Kenny Liu filed plans this week for a 177,000-square-foot tower at 98-04 63rd Road in Rego Park, according to PincusCo. Liu’s company, Chuang Heng Rego Park LLC, closed on the property last week for $30 million. It was sold by the Catholic Church of Our Lady of the Angelus. CBRE’s Dan Kaplan and Tim Sheehan brokered the sale on behalf of the church.

The site is a block from Vornado Realty Trust’s mixed-use Rego Center, which includes retail and 314 residential units.

The development will be Liu’s second in the neighborhood, following a 50-unit condo project, Rego Park Plaza at 97-45 63rd Drive. Elsewhere in Queens, Liu has a 13-story condo development at 142-38 37th Avenue in Flushing. [PincusCo] — David Jeans
