Today YIMBY has the exclusive reveal for yet another major new development coming to Astoria, in Queens, showcasing design by Aufgang Architects. The depiction shows the building’s façade along 30th Street. Concrete panels will be installed in a rectilinear pattern likened to a minimalist refinement of row houses, which projects the sheer scale of the city block-sized structure. The site is just ten blocks away from the Astoria Boulevard subway station, serviced by the N and W trains.
JM Zoning will be responsible for the construction, with the anonymous 37-11 30th Street Holdings LLC leading the development.
Permits for the building were filed in March of this year. They described a 75-foot tall building that will yield 184,085 square feet, with 133,450 square feet dedicated to residential use, 10,980 square feet for manufacturing space, and 10,950 square feet for a ground-floor retail space.
Tenants will have a lobby and a second-floor recreational space. A total of 199 apartments will be created, averaging 670 square feet apiece, indicating rentals. Several terraces will be created for penthouse units at the top of the buildings. Below grade, parking for 146 cars and 110 bicycles will be created.
Demolition permits have not been filed, and the estimated completion date has not been announced. The permits are still pending approval.
