A new seven-story building will rise at the former site of a one-story Elmhurst building that used to operate as an auto repair shop since 1954 and was demolished in 2016.

Located at 91-23 Corona Ave., Apollo Development Group is planning a seven-story structure for the site that includes 35 apartments and commercial space.

The residential space will measure 28,497 square feet while 4,486 square feet will be designated for commercial use, according to permits filed with the Department of Buildings.

In addition, the new building will include a parking garage with space for 23 cars, YIMBY first reported. The surrounding buildings are compromised of mostly low-rise, mixed-use structures. A United Pentecostal Church is located next door and the site is near the E, M and R Elmhurst Avenue subway station.

The Flushing-based Tan Architect firm is responsible for the design.
