A single-family home that was built nearly a century ago was recently demolished to make way for a 5-story residential building.
Demolition permits for the 2.5 story clapboard home, located at 23-23 30th Rd, were filed in August, and the demolition began in December. The property was bought by 23-23 Astoria LLC in June for $3.1 million.
The 93-year-old house will be replaced with a 16-unit apartment building, which will be 12,495 square feet and 50 feet tall. The owner filed for building permits on Friday.
An outdoor recreation space will be located on the roof, and a lobby and bicycle parking facility will be on the first floor.
An ambulatory healthcare facility will be located in the cellar. The building will have a driveway.
The property is six blocks from the Astoria Boulevard subway station, which connects to the N and W line.
The property is being managed by Eric Belanich of Bell Realty, according to building records, and T.F. Cusanelli and Filletii Architecture will handle the design.
