Development is booming in the borderlands between Long Island City and Astoria, and today, YIMBY has a rendering for a mixed-use apartment building planned beneath the elevated subway tracks on 31st Street, not far from Kaufman Astoria Studios and the Museum of the Moving Image. The seven-story project will rise at 36-31 31st Street, half a block from the 36th Avenue stop on the N and Q trains.
36-31 31st Street
Faye Levesque has filed applications for a seven-story, 20-unit mixed-use building at 36-31 31st Street, in northern Long Island City, a stone’s throw away from the N and Q trains’ stop at 36th Avenue. The building will measure 16,342 square feet in total, which includes 1,202 square feet for retail space on the ground floor. The residential units will spread across the building’s remaining space, averaging 757 square feet each. New Jersey-based T.F. Cusanelli and Filletti Architects is the applicant of record, and an existing two-story townhouse must first be demolished.
