Another day, another new development in Astoria. Permits have been filed for a five-story residential building at 23-43 31st Road. The project is being developed by D10 Group Inc, based in Jericho, New York. The company has already finished numerous projects in Astoria and anticipates completing three more by 2018. The 50-foot-high structure will bring 18,283 square footage of residential space, to be divided amongst 25 units, and there will also be a gym and space for rooftop recreation. The lot is five blocks away from the N & W subway lines, over on Broadway, and the architect responsible for the design will be the Queens-based firm, Tan Architect PC. Demolition permits for the old occupant were filed in June.
A seven-story development is slated to rise at 37-21 32nd Street in Dutch Kills, in northeast Long Island City. The mixed-use project is one of several that are rapidly transforming the former industrial neighborhood. The 105,394-square-foot structure would occupy almost the entirety of the through-block lot, which stretches northwest-southeast between 32nd and 33rd streets.
Last October, we announced a proposal for a seven-story mixed-use building at 71-66 Parsons Boulevard in eastern Queens, put forth by Bi Yuan Chen of Parsons Tower LLC. Quite a lot has been done on the 55-unit project since then, and structural completion is very close. Facade work is expected to start in the near future. Zhong Wang Construction Inc. is listed as the general contractor.
When YIMBY last reported on the residential building at 41-04 27th Street in northern Long Island City, at the end of June, it was noted that the nine-story project reached its topmost point. In the two months that have passed, the concrete frame has been sheathed in a curtain wall that looks ready to receive its panel cladding. The 32-unit property, developed by Great Stone Development and designed by Tan Architect, stands at the intersection of 27th Street and 41st Avenue. In conjunction with its equally-new neighbors, the building scale makes for an appropriate transition between the dense skyscraper district of Court Square to the south, and the traditional, rowhome-lined blocks of Dutch Kills to the north.
Property owner Kevin Yang, doing business as an anonymous Whitestone-based LLC, has filed applications for a six-story, 12-unit residential building at 140-20 Cherry Avenue, located on the southern end of downtown Flushing. It will measure 9,281 square feet and its residential units should average 700 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Amenities include laundry facilities, six off-street parking spaces, and a rooftop terrace. There will also be doctor’s offices in the cellar. Chang Hwa Tan’s Flushing-based Tan Architect is the architect of record. The 28-foot-wide, 2,800-square-foot property is currently occupied by a two-story house. Demolition permits were filed back in late 2014. The Flushing-Main Street stop on the 7 train (the line’s eastern terminus) is nine blocks to the north.
