April 13, 2016 Staff Report
Astoria’s blocks continue to make way for residential development, with a five-story, 23-unit residential property slated to rise on 38th Street.
Construction plans were filed yesterday with the Department of Buildings for the development at 30-68 38th St.
The building will include a recreation room on the first floor and parking for bikes and four cars, according to the DOB plans.
Last summer, developer George Elliot of Bell Realty filed demolition plans for this property lot and the adjacent 30-70 38th St., each currently occupied by small homes.
The deeds for both properties were acquired by Bessdan LLC on Dec. 4 last year. Eric Belanich, also of Bell Realty, is listed on DOB plans as the current owner of the development site.
Belanich did not respond to messages left at his office.
As YIMBY previously reported, a rezoning application has been filed for a portion of the development site. That application is currently under Community Board review, according to City documents.
