A new mixed-use, residential and commercial $225 million building with hundreds of units is planned for Downtown Jamaica near the AirTrain, officials said.

Greater Jamaica Development Corporation (GJDC), which owns the 93-01 Sutphin Blvd. site, recently announced the project and that BRP Companies, a New York-based developer, will build the tower.

On completion, the tower will have 400 residential units and at least 80,000 square feet of retail and commercial space, according to the GJDC.

The project will anchor the western end of Downtown Jamaica’s transit hub, where the AirTrain, 10 branches of the Long Island Rail Road, two subway lines and dozens of bus routes converge.

Officials are praising the project as another step in the growth of the area.

“This is an exciting day for Jamaica, and an exciting day for the entire city of New York,” said Congressmember Gregory Meeks. “This project further validates Downtown Jamaica as a prime location for private investment in transit-oriented development.”
