Big building coming to sleepy block


37-19 33rd Street

April 8, 2015 By Michael Florio

An Astoria block known for light industry is about to undergo a significant change.

A seven-story mixed-use building that will consist of 46 apartments is coming to 37-19 33rd Street, according to filings with the Department of Buildings.

The seven-story building will be constructed on a block containing primarily one-story buildings. It will be located just blocks from the 36th Street R/M station–as well as near the 39th Avenue N/Q station.

The building will include 27 spaces. It will also have more than 3,100 square feet of first floor commercial space.

Anthony Morali, of Morali Architects, filed the application on March 27. The architectural firm, which is based in Manhattan, will be designing the building.

The property owner is listed as Photios Cougentakis, of 37-14 34th Street Property, LLC.

The blocks between 35 Ave and Northern Blvd are pretty desolate, lots of people just use it as a shortcut to get from Northern Blvd to the GCP right now. This is going to be great for the area and I hope to see more of this soon.

As for parking, I see this as more parking – the businesses that are there now have zero parking and many workers drive in. And much better than the disco/club that currently occupies the space.


More subway congestion, harder to find parking, longer lines at the grocery store, and unaffordable apartments for people making less than 50K

It is unfortunate but if you make under 50K per year, living minutes from Manhattan is not your right!!
