More residential units are coming to Long Island City in the form of an 11-story building that includes parking and commercial space.

Developer Circle F Capital filed plans at 22-43 Jackson Ave., a building that used to house the local 808 pension and health fund union. It’s in close proximity to the popular museum MoMA PS1.

The 74,805-square-foot space will hold 71 units and a cellar with 46 parking spots, according to plans filed with the Department of Buildings.

The ground floor will feature three commercial spaces including a gym, business center and a meeting room. Some units will also include balconies and terraces. The Real Deal reported that developers are planning condominiums.

According to LIC Partnership, about 8,945 units are slated for construction in the neighborhood in 2017. By 2020, about 395,000 square feet of retail in mixed-use development is slated for Long Island City.
