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.
Great Neck-based Antonio Mourtil has filed applications for a seven-story, 17-unit mixed-use building at 30-13 31st Street, in central Astoria, right below the 30th Avenue stop on the N and Q trains. The building will measure 17,504 square feet in total, and will feature 2,791 and 2,890 square feet, respectively, of retail space on the ground floor, and health care facilities on the second. Units will be located on the floors above and will average a rental-sized 695 square feet each. New Jersey-based T.F. Cusanelli & Filletti Architect is the applicant of record, and a two-story house must first be demolished.
