The owner of the Queens Boulevard building that once housed an Entenmann’s bakery outlet took a significant step last week toward developing the site.

The developer filed plans on Sept. 20 to tear down the one-story structure at 70-50 Queens Blvd., located within a roughly 20,000 square foot lot.

The lot, which includes the building and adjacent parking lot, and with its building still showing the “bakery outlet” lettering, has been a used car dealership since it was sold off last summer.

The buyer, according to property records, is listed as the Chetrit Group, the large–yet obscure–real estate developer behind several major projects citywide. It purchased the Entenmann’s bakery outlet site for $11.8 million, and is also the owner of the former Queens Motor Inn motel on Queens Boulevard, slated for development.

The Chetrit Group did not immediately return a message seeking information on the two projects.

New building filings have not been submitted for the Entenmann’s location, but the site can accommodate a roughly 72,500 square foot as-of-right development. Surrounding buildings with the same zoning indicate that the upcoming development could be just over 10 stories.

The former Motor Inn, meanwhile, has since been demolished, but no permits have been issued for its development yet.
