A developer has filed plans to construct two additional 9-story buildings on a large parcel of land on 30th Drive in Astoria, bringing the total number of proposed buildings on site to three.

The additional plans call for buildings  at 11-12 30th Dr. and 11-28 30th Dr., which will offer 275 and 266 residential units, respectively. The developer, David Kronman of Astoria West LLC, had already filed plans to construct a separate 9-story, 168 unit building on the same tract of land, which would be located at 11-37 31st Ave.

The 95-foot-tall building planned for 11-12 30th Drive includes 199,050 square feet of residential space and 500 square feet of commercial space, to be located on the first floor. A total of 70 parking spaces would be located in the cellar, as well as 360 bicycle parking spaces.

Building residents will have access to amenities like a pool and pool deck, roof terrace, and a ninth floor lounge. There will also be six private terraces on each level on floors two through nine.

The building at 11-28 30th Dr. will be 90 feet tall and offer a total of 173,668 square feet of residential space.

The building includes 130 parking spaces and a laundry room on the cellar level, as well as unspecified “amenity spaces” in the cellar and on the first floor. Several private terraces form part of the plans, as well as a common terrace on the eighth floor.

The 30th Drive buildings, located in an area bound by 30th Drive, 31st Avenue, 12th Street, and Vernon Boulevard, would be about eight blocks from the 30th Avenue (N/W) subway station and about two blocks from the Astoria ferry terminal. The property is also about two blocks from Socrates Sculpture Park and two blocks from Hallets Cove Playground.

Fogarty Finger Architecture is responsible for the design of all the buildings.

Kronman did not respond to a request for comment by press time.

Formerly industrial side of the neighborhood which is becoming a really nice part of Astoria, with the waterfront, parks, easier access to LIC, and Manhattan via the ferry. I for one welcome the addition to the neighborhood as long as they bring some retail options too. 14 street or 31 Avenue ideally should be mini commercial strips


No. No. You see, I’ve lived here my whole life and this would make it different from how it was, so I don’t like it.

Would like to see each new DOE school going up, to be required to have underground parking to accommodate all staff, building
Team and any others I may have left out. One if our elected officials told me “They don’t have to.” Sorry, that doesn’t “fly.”

Some name

“…eight blocks from the 30th Avenue (N/W) subway station.” Closer to 1 mile. Sounds like a lovely set of buildings in the middle of nowhere with studios starting at $2900.
