A new residential building is on the horizon in Elmhurst complete with a museum on the first floor, according to permits filed through the Department of Buildings.

The building will rise on a currently empty lot at 47-11 90th St., a triangular patch of land tucked away between mixed-use buildings on Corona Avenue to the south and the tracks of the Long Island Rail Road’s Port Washington branch to the north.

According to the permit, the five-story building will be 55 feet tall with 88,514 square feet of total space. Most of the space will be residential, with 80 condos totaling 74,165 square feet. The other 5,000 square feet will be used for a museum on the ground floor, according to DOB records.

When reached over the phone on Sept. 20, Song Liu, listed as the building’s owner on the DOB documents, could not provide any additional information about the project.

The building will also feature a basement parking garage and a rooftop recreational space for residents, records show, as well as a separate tax lot for an outdoor meeting place for St. Mark African Methodist Episcopal Church.

The building is being designed by 5D Architecture & Engineering, PLLC, and if the permits are approved, construction could begin immediately since the property is vacant.
