Building plans have been filed for a 13-story mixed-use building to go up on a site adjacent to the Flushing Town Hall.

The development, which will be located at 137-45 to 137-61 Northern Blvd, will include a 244-room Westin Hotel and 38 apartments. The building replaces the building that was home to the Great Wall Supermarket.

The developer, George Xu, filed plans to demolish the existing one-story building last month.

The 152-foot tall building will consist of 228,000 square feet of space, with 101,000 square feet for the hotel, 42,000 square feet for apartments and 2,270 for community facilities such as medical offices.

The 38 apartments will be on the tenth floor.

The building will include 64 parking spots and 40 bicycle spaces. Hotel Guests will have access to a swimming pool, fitness center, ballroom, laundry, storage, and conference rooms.

Raymond Chan Architect is the designer.
