Astoria Property Sells For $10.2 million, Likely to be Developed into 7-Story Building

Sold for $10.25 million

April 4, 2014 By Michael Florio

The redevelopment of Astoria continues.

A big piece of real estate located on the north side of Broadway has just changed hands for $10,225,000, and experts say it is only a matter of time before the site is developed.

The parcel, which consists of three contiguous lots at 14-01, 14-07 and 14-19 Broadway, is zoned for residential and mixed use development.

The buyer, a real estate investment group, is permitted to build up to seven stories (78,000 buildable square feet).

“Rising rents and condominium prices are creating tremendous demand for Queens development sites,” said Shimon Shkury, president of Ariel Property Advisors, the firm that brokered the deal.

The seller was an unnamed private investor.

They have to build parking for at least half the units and the 7th story will likely be setback as a penthouse or several of them.

It’s west of 21st St, on Broadway. Across from LIC HS. 7 stories wouldn’t fit well into the neighborhood. 5 or 6 might, but there’s no parking.

These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.

Astoria welcomes ‘Our House’: A new co-working and community space

Apr. 11, 2024 By Allison Kridle

If you were to ask a Queens resident what’s one thing they want more of, they will likely reply: Space. For Astorians, many crave a place to gather, work, create, and meet neighbors or somewhere that feels like home where they can be productive all in one. Astoria business owners Anna Budinger, Alexandra Wolkoff and Kayli Kunkel saw this void and created Our House, “Astoria’s living room.”
