New single-family homes are fairly uncommon in New York City, which makes the suburban qualities of 300 Kenmore Road somewhat unusual compared to what we usually see. Developers are proposing the two-story building in Douglaston, Queen, one of the more affluent low-rise residential neighborhoods in the city. The area was declared a New York City Historic District in 2004. T.F. Cusanelli and Filletti Architects are responsible for the design.

Located in the southwest corner of Long Island City, a new, three-story industrial building will take shape along a winding, undeveloped stretch of Newton Creek. The lot measures 37,543 square feet, and is officially zoned for warehouse, storage, and light industrial use.
Renderings reveal updated design by T.F. Cusanelli and Filletti Architects of 300 Kenmore Road in the landmark neighborhood of Douglaston, Queens. YIMBY reported on the project proposal in January of this year. The project replaces a two-story garage building that was converted to an apartment. Douglaston is an upper-middle-class residential neighborhood recognized as an NYC Historic District in 2004.
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.
Earlier this month, YIMBY revealed renderings of the planned residential development at 30-70 38th Street (a.k.a. 30-66 39th Street), in central Astoria, located seven blocks from the 30th Avenue stop on the N/Q trains. Now, property owner George Elliott has filed applications for the project, which will rise five stories and contain 23 residential units (down from 26). The new building will encompass 29,277 square feet and its units should average a rental-sized 738 square feet apiece. Amenities include a ground-floor recreation area, bike storage, a parking garage, and private storage space. The project is currently in the beginning stages of the city’s Urban Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP), as the developer is seeking to rezone a portion of the site. New Jersey-based T.F. Cusanelli & Filletti Architects is designing. The assemblage is currently occupied by two wood-framed houses.
