Fetner Properties and Lions Group NYC are moving forward with their plans for a new mixed-use complex in Long Island City.

The partners pre-filed an application with the city to convert a vacant lot at 27-01 Jackson Avenue into a 27-story tower with 139 residential units, a portion of which will be affordable, and retail space on the first floor.

The project, which will also have a second building, is a partnership with the city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development and the Department of Citywide Administrative Services.

The building’s total size would cover some 191,700 square feet, with 91 parking spaces across the first three levels and residential units starting on the sixth floor.

Fetner and Lions did not immediately return requests for comment.

The tower is one of two planned as part of the project for Jackson Avenue, located near the Queensboro Bridge approach ramps.

Plans for the other, at 26-32 Jackson Avenue, have yet to be filed with the building department. That building will be 49 stories tall with about 249 market-rate and 112 affordable apartments.

Both buildings went through the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure, receiving final approval in December.

The city sold about 362,700 square feet of air space to the developers in exchange for the affordability component and a cash payment based on the average square foot rates for local residential sales, according to New York Law School’s CityLand.
