A new nine-story residential building is coming to Astoria, Queens, at 11-37 31st Avenue, between Vernon Boulevard and 12th Street. It will stand 91 feet when complete, covering about 110,450 square feet and including 168 units. Christopher Fogarty of Fogarty Finger Architecture is designing, while the owner and developer is David Kronman of Astoria West LLC. The project will be a ground-up development and will replace an extant two-story structure on site.
The neighborhood consists of low rise residential buildings and old warehouses along the waterfront, which are slowly making way for new redevelopments ground-up construction. The only other tall building in the vicinity is East River Tower, directly across the street to the south at 11-24 31st Avenue, which stands 20 stories tall.
11-37 31st Avenue is half a block away from the waterfront. The closest subway from the project site is the 30th Avenue subway line on the N and W train, taking commuters to Midtown at 59th Street and the rest of Queens via the 7 train at Queensboro Plaza.
No renderings, construction or completion date have been announced at this moment.
