Another Astoria house to be torn down, this one for 16 units


April 14, 2016 Staff Report

The latest development coming down the pike in Astoria is a seven-story, 16-unit building on 31st Street.

Construction plans were filed yesterday with the Department of Buildings (DOB) for the structure at 25-40 31st Street. The new building, located by the Astoria Boulevard Station, will replace a two-story house.

The 12,753 square-foot, mixed-use development, will have 16-residential units, and include 1,488 square-feet of commercial space on the first floor, according to the fillings with the DOB.

It will feature an interior parking lot in the cellar with eight spaces.

CVP Architect is designing the building.

Can they focus on Ditmars! Before Ditmars becomes the really low end of Astoria with old homes, bars, a homeless shelter and plenty of space for more Affordable Housing. I don’t like what is going on on 30 and Broadway. But ditmars is turning into a place where the people who cant afford the other areas come to. There is a big difference between rental profits between ditmars and the other developed areas of Astoria.


We will need N and Q trains with 20 cars to hold all the new residents who demand snooty tasteless whitey white white shop for their bland taste buds.


Wow, I was born just a few doors away from this house. I can’t even imagine a taller building there.
