J Frankl Associates has released the first exterior renderings of a new 18-story residential building in Astoria, Queens. Located at 26-25 Fourth Street, the building will contain 165 apartments and a suite of amenity spaces that include on-site parking, a communal lounge, fitness and co-working facilities, a children’s playroom, and multiple outdoor areas.
The façade is mostly comprised of pale silver cladding and an orthodox grid of floor-to-ceiling windows. The massing of the structure above the fifth floor is set back and incorporates a modest cantilever to make room for a shared outdoor space with light landscaping and lounge areas. Residents on the periphery of the building will also have access to private balconies.
The property will top out at 204 feet above ground and will comprise nearly 289,000 square feet. Residential area accounts for roughly 240,000 square feet. The building will also house 38,000 square feet of unspecified community facilities on the ground floor, while the parking component is designed to accommodate 101 vehicles.
The development occupies a wedge-shaped assemblage of lots at the intersection of 26th Avenue and Fourth Street and is now nearing approval. Solomon Feder, under the entity Fourth Development Holdings LLC, is listed as the owner behind the permit applications submitted to the Department of Buildings. The project team has not announced an anticipated date of completion.
