Renderings for a 3-story commercial and community facility in Astoria have been released, depicting sharply angled slabs at every level, clear walls, and a large circular opening atop the corner building.
Plans filed back in August for the building at 40-17 28th Ave, currently a one-story garage right off Steinway St., proposed a 49-foot building with a total of 14,244 square-feet of space. The plans call for a restaurant at the ground floor and the roof, making up 7,113 square-feet, and for a community facility to take up the second and third floors coming in at 7,131 square-feet.
An enclosed parking space for 124 cars is also included in the plans, which will be extend to four-floors below ground level.
Demolition permits for the existing garage were filed back in March.
Bleach Architects, the Manhattan-based firm, is behind the building’s concrete design.
