Permits have been filed for a 7-story residential building on 29th Street in Astoria.

The new 20-unit apartment building will rise at 30-38 29th St. The building will replace an existing three story home, although demolition permits have not yet been filed.

The structure will be 70 feet tall and 13,860 square feet.

Residents will have access to a rooftop terrace, as well as a laundry room, storage space and parking for 10 bikes located in the cellar.

Ten parking spaces will be available on-site, two of which will be located on the first floor. A lobby will also be located on the first floor.

The location is three blocks from the 30th Avenue (N/W) subway station.

The property is owned by SRS Realty. Bluarch Architecture will handle the design.

It’s funky old house with character, in sad shape, but tearing it down is really unfortunate. I don’t get it, but I guess it’s all about the $$$. I would never sell to developers either. Sad – I’ll miss walking by this old house.


I am so grateful they didn’t get the building next door.
A while back i met the owner of the neighboring property and she said her parents will never sell to any developer. also, it’s a beautiful building.


She can say that all she wants, but once she sells, the next owner can turn around and sell to a developer for triple the price. Once you sell, you can not control what the next owner does. You might as well get the money.


So sad. There won’t be any sky left for us. I used to live on that block. I loved the older homes.
