Operating under an LLC, Madison Development has filed applications for a four-story, 175,000 square-foot storage building at the vacant lot of 31-07 20th Avenue, near the Con Edison generating station in northern Astoria’s Ditmars Steinway. It’s unknown if the building will be used for Con Ed’s operations, but the facility would be very convenient. Long Island-based Frank Relf is the architect of record.

    It’s very sad to see this plot of land destroyed. It was a migration site for geese as they traveled to their final destination. You could hear them in the distance and watch from your window as they circled and landed for food. It was magical. There were also cardinals, black birds, blue jays, starlings, sea gulls, ducks, and so many others species of birds that had claim on this land. The starlings would come in the hundreds and create a haunting black ripple as they would swoop to land. It was a delightful plot of nature in this barren city on which so many animals depended. It’s a tragedy that this essential feeding ground for so many birds and other little creatures, is being destroyed for a storage facility that will block the view and and probably look pretty awful. Let’s face it, Queens is a bit backwards when it comes to zoning. Not quite up there with the cool places like Brooklyn. If you have any imagination at all, just a little vision, you would realize that plots of nature have more value than ugly buildings.
