Another day, another new development in Astoria. Permits have been filed for a five-story residential building at 23-43 31st Road. The project is being developed by D10 Group Inc, based in Jericho, New York. The company has already finished numerous projects in Astoria and anticipates completing three more by 2018. The 50-foot-high structure will bring 18,283 square footage of residential space, to be divided amongst 25 units, and there will also be a gym and space for rooftop recreation. The lot is five blocks away from the N & W subway lines, over on Broadway, and the architect responsible for the design will be the Queens-based firm, Tan Architect PC. Demolition permits for the old occupant were filed in June.
As Astoria continues to thrive, spot re-zonings are sometimes required to handle the neighborhood’s growing pains. One of those is in the works at 35-10 Astoria Boulevard, and calls for a new seven-story mixed-use project, which YIMBY can reveal today.
Astoria usually sees residential or minimally mixed-use development, but today, YIMBY has news for a new hotel coming to the neighborhood, immediately adjacent to the 30th Avenue stop on the N and W lines. The new building will rise at 30-17 31st Street, on a lot that is currently vacant, with a design by T.F. Cusanelli and Filletti Architects. There will be 5,544 square feet of community facility space on the first two floors, containing an ambulatory facility, as well as 13,529 square feet of commercial space, to be divided between a retail component on the ground floor, and 48 hotel rooms on levels three through nine. Antonio Mourtil of “Anton Developer of Forest Hills” is listed as the developer.
Astoria is increasingly playing host to massive new developments, but infill still predominates in the neighborhood, and new building applications have now been filed for 26-26 18th Street. Demolition permits for an existing two-story structure have not yet been filed, but architect Frank Petruso will be designing its replacement, which will rise four floors and 40 feet to its rooftop. The project will span just shy of 5,000 square feet, and be divided between seven units averaging about 700 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. Salvatore Prainito is the site’s developer.
When it comes to massive residential projects in Queens, Long Island City has a fairly solid monopoly on the largest buildings. But as Astoria sees its own wave of new developments, it too is set to sprout an enormously scaled apartment project. The site, at 30-80 12th Street, will have 711 units and be designed by HAAK Architects.
