A Westbury, LI developer has unveiled plans for a seven-story apartment building on the site of a distinctive-looking but rundown former medical office on Hillside Avenue.

Piermont Properties has an application to build a new structure at 188-11 Hillside Ave., which is on the north side of Hillside in Jamaica Estates.

The story was first reported this week by New York YIMBY, a website that covers news of the city’s real estate industry.

The building, if approved, will replace the old Hillside SurgiCare Center, which specialized in outpatient surgical procedures. It was built in 2000. The gate to its east parking lot is closed, and the trees and shrubs that sit in front appeared to need some trimming during a visit on Tuesday morning

The Chronicle was unable to contact officials of Piermont Properties prior to its publication deadline on Wednesday.

The architect is EDI International of Manhattan.

The four-page application, which can be viewed on the city’s Department of Buildings website at nyc.gov/dob, was filed on July 10.

The structure is proposed to be 70 feet high with 93 residential units, with 7,1621 square feet dedicated to residential space.

It also contains reference to inclusion of a “community facility” slated to cover 847 square feet. Developers also are proposing an enclosed parking garage with 67 spaces on-site.
