Astoria townhouse likely to be demolished for four-story building



Oct. 25, 2016 By Hannah Wulkan

Another Astoria house is likely to be demolished and replaced by a building much taller.

A developer filed plans with the Department of Buildings Friday to build a 4-story, 7-unit apartment building at 27-34 27th Street.

The 25-foot-wide, 2,500-square-foot property is currently occupied by a two-story townhouse. Demolition permits have not been filed.

The developer purchased the property for $1.2 million in June, according to building records.

The new building would have 7 apartments, with two on each of the first three floors, and a single apartment on the top floor, and would have 4,995 square feet of residential space.

According to the plan, the cellar would be for “Accessory Uses,” though it does not go in to further detail as to what that means.

The developer has enlisted Frank Petruso as the architect for this project.

The owner did not return calls when attempts were made to find out more information.
