Silvercup Properties, the development division of film and TV production company Silvercup Studios, filed plans for a 26-story apartment building in Long Island City.

The 145,000-square-foot building at 27-21 44th Drive, between Sunnyside Yard and Jackson Avenue, is set to hold 115 apartments. Apartments will average under 1,000 square feet. There will be a 6,780-square-foot ground-floor commercial component.

GF55 Partners is serving as the architect. Silvercup acquired the site for $21.1 million from Vorea Holdings LLC and Meshburg Capital in March, as The Real Deal reported.
