An Astoria landlord has filed permits to build a 7-story residential building in the neighborhood.
The developer plans to build a seven story, 12 unit residential building at 30-48 Crescent Street, according to filings with the Building Department.
A two story, single family home used to stand on the site, but was sold to a developer last October for $2.2 million. The house was demolished earlier this year.
The owner has commissioned Long Island City based GKA Design Group to build the new structure, which would have 12,212 square feet of residential space, split between 12 apartments, two per floor on the upper six floors.
The first floor would have a lobby for the building, and the rooftop would provide recreational outdoor space for residents.
The cellar would include a laundry room and storage space. There would also be some commercial space.
According to the owner of the property Domenick Casamento, the commercial space in the basement would likely turn in to the office space for his real estate firm, Alyssa Gray Realty.
The new building would stand 70 feet tall, and would have six outdoor parking spaces.
Casamento said that though construction on the new building has not yet begun, he hopes to be moving tenants in by the spring of 2018.
