Six Three-Story, Mixed-Use Buildings Coming To 106-02 Astoria Boulevard, East Elmhurst

Property owner Stelios Banagos, head of Bay Restoration Corp. but doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for six small mixed-use buildings at 106-02 – 106-14 Astoria Boulevard, located between 106th and 107th Streets, in East Elmhurst. The buildings will stand three stories in height and will contain two residential units each, although size of the buildings will vary between 4,500 and 6,700 square feet apiece. The residential and commercial square-footage figures for each building are not entirely clear, although it appears across the entire development 6,227 square feet of ground-floor retail space and 12,379 square feet of residential space is planned. That means full-floor residential units will average 1,032 square feet apiece. Midtown-based Node Engineering & Consulting is the applicant of record. Three existing wood-framed houses must first be demolished. Demolition permits are currently on file.
