Permits have been filed for a new six-story residential building with 10 apartment units in Astoria.
The building, which will be located at 25-28 30th Drive, will be 10,948 square feet and 75 feet tall. The property is currently occupied by a two-story brick residence that was constructed in 1954.
A residential lobby, recreational area and an apartment will be located on the building’s first floor. Tenants will also have access to a laundry room, a trash compactor room and tenant storage in the cellar.
Two apartments will be located on each level from floors two to five; a single apartment will be located on the sixth floor and extend into a penthouse.
T.F. Cusanelli and Filletti Architecture is responsible for the design. The property is owned by Sanford Petropoulos.
The property is three blocks from the 30th Avenue (N/W) subway station.
I wonder if it will be consistent with nearly all of the new buildings, which follow the architectural aesthetic known has ugly. Where did these architects go to school?
At the end of the day the developer signs off on the architects design. Usually the developer goes with something basic and a structure that will save them the most money
Always good to see the neighborhood changing for the better. Newer developments mean safer streets and more qaulified and stable people. I love the changes coming our way.
Astoria is going through gentrification on steroids. $35 million for Astoria park renovation, $170 million to upgrade Astoria train stations, $200 million for the Astoria General/Mt Siani hospital expansion, Citibike, Links WiFi stations and massive private development. Major changes but i’m Not sure if it’s for better or for worse.
That is private money for the hospital. ASTORIA needs people who respect the community
True gentrification happened in parts of LIC. Other than a couple of new buildings on certain blocks and more restaurants and bars Astoria looks the same to me. It smells different though due to the increase in weed smoking and car/plane pollution.
Between recently developed and in development there are currently over five thousand new apartments added to Astoria. Three thousand new apartments just by Astoria projects. And that’s on top of the new ferry, new train stations, hospital expansion, Astoria park upgrade, one million dollar doggy park at Hoyt, Citibike, Links WiFi stations and a ton of new bars, cafes and restaurants. That’s a lot of gentrification!
Don’t forget the $4 mill Steinway library renovation.
