A new 5-story apartment building with a rooftop lounge and party room will open above the former C-Town supermarket this fall in Astoria.
The building, called “Astor Broadway,” is located on the corner of Broadway and 29th Street.
The complex will consist of 64 studio-one-and-two bedroom apartments, a laundry room, a furnished courtyard, a fitness center, recreation areas, terraces on the top three floors and 32 underground parking spaces, according to Citi Habitats, the leasing agent for the building
“It’s not a generic building that you see throughout New York City,” said Dave Maundrell, who works at Citi Habitats and is in charge of leasing the building. “The sense of style and the cool hip place invites people to come home.”
Maundrell said construction is expected to wrap up by the end of summer. People will be able to start applying for the apartments in July or August, Maundrell added, although he noted that rental prices have yet to be set.
A Food Emporium will replace the former C-Town on the first floor, which closed in 2015. The new store will be run by the same family that operated the C-Town. There are also two other retail spaces available on the first floor, which Citi Habitat looking to find retail tenants.
