A developer has filed plans to build a new residential tower on top of a shopping center in Rego Park, city officials said.

The city’s Department of Buildings (DOB) approved a work permit on June 24 to allow Vornado Realty Trust to construct 314 housing units above the Rego Park Center at 61-35 Junction Boulevard, according to the department and published reports.

According to The Real Deal, the 24-story building would likely be a rental complex.

The shopping center, located near the Long Island Expressway, is home to many stores, including Costco, Marshalls, Bed, Bath & Beyond and Century 21. It opened in 2010.

Vornado declined to comment as of press time.
