Property owner George Elliott, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a five-story, seven-unit residential building at 30-49 38th Street, in Astoria, eight blocks east of the N and Q trains’ stop at 30th Avenue. The building will measure 4,981 square feet in total, which means units will average a rental-sized 712 square feet apiece. New Jersey-based T.F. Cusanelli & Filletti Architects is the applicant of record, and permits were filed in July to demolish an existing two-story, multi-family townhouse.
The administration of Mayor Bill de Blasio has decided to tamp down on hotel development in industrial zones, but dozens of hotels are already on the rise in Long Island City’s manufacturing areas. YIMBY has a rendering of a 20-story hotel in the works at 52-09 31st Place, in a particularly forlorn and polluted micro-hood known as Blissville.
Late last year, YIMBY reported on permits for a small three-story, two-unit residential project at 21-11 74th Street, located on the western end of East Elmhurst. Now, permits have recently been amended to build a structure with three units. The building will measure 3,315 square feet in total, and full-floor units will average 1,105 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. Konstantine Drakopoulos is the property owner and Queens-based Gerald Caliendo is the architect of record. The site’s former 1.5-story home was demolished last year.

Each will measure 2,937 square feet and contain four residential units, which means units will average a rental-sized 734 square feet apiece. Benedetto Davi’s Astoria-based Davi Architecture is the applicant of record.
Property owner Shahida Khan has filed applications for a seven-story, 10-unit mixed-use building at 65-27 Roosevelt Avenue, in Woodside, a stone’s throw away from the 7 train’s stop at 69th Street.

Residential units above will average 761 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. Flushing-based Ling Li is the architect of record, and a dilapidated two-story building must first be demolished.
