The site at 30-77 Vernon Boulevard spans about 522,000 square feet. Cape Advisors and Wainbridge are planning a luxury five-building residential project with 770 affordable and market-rate apartments. Amenities include lounges, a rooftop deck and a fitness center.

Mack is expected to provide construction financing for Cape Advisors and Wainbridge on the project as well.

Cape Advisors purchased the site for $85 million from Shibber Khan’s Criterion Group. It spans almost a full block and is right by the Astoria ferry stop. [CO]Eddie Small
