Borough President Markowitz signed off on Century 21’s plan to turn an old bowling alley into a six-story parking garage for 279 cars on 87th Street.

The lot could help ease parking congestion during daytime shopping hours and also at night, as Century 21 has promised to allow local restaurants to use the lot for valet parking, freeing up space on the street.

In addition to the parking garage, Century 21 hopes to add a level of retail space on 87th Street and plant six trees on the roof, according to architect David Nicholson.

The proposal needs a zoning change before it can procede, hence the Borough President’s approval last week.

The site, which is between Fourth and Fifth avenues, was once home to the Mark Lanes, a popular bowling alley.

The City Planning Commission will vote on the application within 60 days before it advances to an expected approval by the City Council.
