Simon Dushinsky’s Rabsky Group has filed plans for a 78-unit mixed-use project in Williamsburg, the latest from the prolific Brooklyn developer.

The complex will span slightly less than 99,000 square feet at 34 Union Avenue, according to plans Dushinsky filed with the Department of Buildings this week. It will stand 12 stories and 114 feet tall, and will include residential, community and commercial space.

At least some of the residential units will be low income housing, according to the filing.

Rabsky purchased the site in 2012 for $12.75 million, according to property records. The company did not respond to a request for comment.

Rabsky is one of the most active developers in Brooklyn and has several other projects in the works in Williamsburg. The firm filed plans late last year for a 73,000-square-foot mixed-use development at 58 Union Avenue, and for a 159,000-square-foot mixed use project at 269 Wallabout Street in Williamsburg.

The company also landed a $70.5 million loan for its massive Broadway Triangle complex from Bank Leumi USA last month.
