Plans have been filed to take down a three story residential building on Calyer Street, just a short distance from the waterfront.

The frame house, located at 85 Calyer Street and housing two units at a height of 35 feet, had demolition paperwork filed for it on Aug. 31. Additional demolition permits were filed on Oct.11 for a 15-foot-tall house extension at the rear of the property.

The owner of the site is listed as Daniel Kaykov of the Renovation Group, a Forest Hills-based construction business that specializes in high-end residential and commercial projects. The demolitions will be carried out by the Long Island City based H&O Engineering.

Kaykov did not immediately respond to questions on what will be built on the property. No permits have been filed for a new building as of yet with the Department of Buildings.

85 Calyer Street was once the home of Thomas Fitch Rowland, an engineer whose company helped build the USS Monitor, the first commissioned ironclad warship for the Union Navy during the Civil War.
