Small rental and condo projects are slowly reshaping the prewar streets of Astoria. Today we have a look at a rental development under construction at 37-14 31st Avenue, between 37th and 38th streets.
Construction is wrapping up on the five-story, 16-unit residential building under development at 23-33 31st Road, located in the heart of Astoria. The latest building permits indicate the 50-foot-tall structure, which topped out last year, measures 14,526 square feet. The project, dubbed The Lincoln, will feature condominiums, 15 of which will be one-bedrooms, plus a single two-bedroom apartment, Real Estate Weekly reported. The average apartment should measure 687 square feet apiece. Danzig Organization is the developer and Chang Hwa Tan’s Flushing-based firm is the architect of record. Completion can likely be expected in the coming months.
A Long Island City-based property owner has filed applications for a three-story, six-unit residential building at 34-31 9th Street, located in the western end of Astoria. The project will measure 5,787 square feet, which means its residential units should average 965 square feet apiece. There will be four off-street parking spaces, two of which will be housed in a garage on the ground floor. Constantine Efstathiou’s Bellmore, N.Y.-based firm is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide, 5,009-square-foot plot is partly occupied by a three-story townhouse. The new structure will rise on the vacant portion of the lot.
An anonymous Roslyn Heights, N.Y.-based LLC has filed applications for a four-story, 13-unit residential building at 22-22 Steinway Street, in the Ditmars section of Astoria. The project will measure 11,605 square feet and its residential units should average 740 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. There will also be nine off-street parking spaces. Nickolas Kazalas’s Astoria-based firm NDKazalas Architecture is the architect of record.
In late November, Related Companies filed applications for a four-story, 21-unit residential building at 19-14 20th Avenue, in the Ditmars section of Astoria. Now the developer has filed applications for a second building: a four-story, 32-unit residential structure, at 18-12 20th Avenue. All 53 of the new residential units will rent at below-market rates to veterans, with 20 percent set aside for homeless soldiers. Gran Kriegel Associates will be responsible for the architecture. Two single-story parking garages will have to be demolished for the new structures. Both buildings will be part of Related’s revamp of the seven-building, 444-unit Marine Terrace residential complex, which will get comprehensive renovation of its own.
