An application to fully demolish a residential building in Astoria that was the site of a restaurant and a beer garden has been filed, building records show.
The demolition plans were filed on Sept. 5 for the three-story building at 30-09 21st Street. At 30 feet high and housing two dwelling units, the building was also the site of Club 21, a former Czech restaurant and beer garden, operated in the building’s first floor from 2008 until 2013. The first-floor space was then taken over by The Barn, a cozy beer garden and restaurant that closed earlier this summer.
If approved, the building would be demolished by H and O Engineering, a Hunters Point based firm that specializes in demolition.
The building is owned by the Katsigiannis Family Trust, with a business address based in Brookville, New York.
No plans have been filed for a new building on the site, and calls and emails to the owner were not answered.
