After nabbing a sprawling Hallets Cove property last year, an Astoria developer has filed plans to build a 6-story, 142-unit apartment building on the site.
Slated for 11-02 30th Drive, the planned building will neighbor the sites of the incoming Hallets Point and Astoria Cove megaprojects that will add thousands of apartments to the neighborhood. It is also a short distance from the future dock of a planned Astoria ferry.
Shibber Khan of the Criterion Group purchased the nearly 120,000 square-foot lot for $57 million last October, Crains reported at the time.
Not many amenities are listed for the apartment building, according to the filing, aside from a courtyard and ground floor “community space.”
Parking for 46 cars will occupy the cellar, falling short of zoning regulations, which require spaces for half of the dwelling units, or 71 spots. Meanwhile, there are 71 bike parking spaces planned.
Khan did not respond for comment.
