Plans have been filed for the construction of a five-story apartment building on an Astoria site that currently houses a church.
The Episcopal Diocese of Long Island has filed plans to build 21 units at 46-09 31st Ave. where St. Andrews Church is located. Demolition permits have not been filed and a spokeswoman for the diocese would not comment as to whether the church would be torn down.
The building will consist of a ground floor community room and lobby; 6 units per floor on floors two through four; and three units on the top floor.
The episcopal church no longer uses the space. CityLight Church, a non denomination group, has been operating out of the location in recent years.
