Developers Cape Advisors and Pioneer Group announced this week that Astoria West has topped out in Astoria, Queens. Located at 30-77 Vernon Boulevard, the massive three-building development will comprise 2.5 acres of waterfront land with views of the Manhattan skyline over the East River. Fogarty Finger Architects is responsible for the architecture and design, which includes 522,000 square feet across the three structures with 534 rental residences and a vast range of amenities.
”Each day we’re getting closer to delivering this exciting residential offering,” said Craig Wood of Cape Advisors. “We’re making excellent progress at the site thanks to our talented development, design, and construction team. In spite of the many challenges posed by the pandemic, the entire team has worked exceptionally hard to keep the project on track and we applaud them for their effort and dedication.”
Residences will include a mix of studios and one- and two-bedroom units. Amenities include a rooftop pool and lounge, a landscaped private inner courtyard and gardens, indoor and outdoor co-working lounges, a fitness center, and a game room.
Astoria West is a three-minute walk to the Manhattan ferry, and a short walk to the 30th Avenue subway station, serviced by the N and W trains. The residential development will also sit adjacent to Astoria’s art district with Socrates Sculpture Park, The Noguchi Museum, and the Welling Court Mural Project within walking distance.
Construction is expected to reach completion in the first half of 2022. The first temporary certificate of occupancy should be issued late this year.
