Five-Story, Eight-Unit Residential Building Planned At 27-21 27th Street, Astoria

Property owner Alan Richer, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a five-story, eight-unit residential building at 27-21 27th Street, in Astoria, three blocks from the 30th Avenue stop on the N and Q trains. It will measure 5,726 square feet, which means units will average a rental-sized 716 square feet apiece. Some will be duplexes, according to the Schedule A. Astoria-based Christopher Papa is the architect of record, and an existing two-story townhouse must first be demolished.

Eight-Unit Residential Development Gets Permits At 12-02 27th Avenue, Astoria

Back in 2013, Forest Hills-based Sharon Cohen filed applications for four little residential buildings at 12-02 – 12-10 27th Avenue, in western Astoria. Within the past few weeks, the DOB has finally granted building permits. The entire development will measure 10,348 square feet in residential space and total eight units. All four buildings will have only two units, with two of them rising three stories and the other two rising two stories. Long Island-based Shahriar Afshari is the architect of record, and the site’s old two-story home was demolished in July.

Permits Filed: 30-63 31st Street, Astoria

When the city rezoned Astoria five years ago, stretch of 31st Street that runs underneath the elevated N/Q tracks got new zoning that encouraged mixed-use development instead of just residential buildings. Now developers are snapping up small lots beneath the tracks and filing plans for moderately sized apartment buildings, incorporating a mix of residential, commercial and community facilities. Flushing-based builder Wen Ye is planning a seven-story project with retail and a small medical office at 30-63 31st Street, a block south of the 30th Avenue stop.
