Gas Station on 21st Street in Astoria to be Demolished, Mixed Use Building Expected

Dec. 21, 2020 By Christian Murray

A gas station and auto repair shop on 21st Street are going to be demolished to make way for a mixed-use building.

Demolition plans were filed with the Dept. of Buildings last week to bulldoze a one-story building at 30-75 21st St. that is located on the corner of 30th Drive and 21st Street. The building contains an auto repair shop and gas station.

Building plans have yet to be filed, but a commercial lending company announced via social media last month that it had provided $3.5 million in funding for the site’s redevelopment.

“ERG Commercial Real Estate is proud to announce the funding of 30-75 21st St.,” the company posted. “The property sits on a 10,000 square foot lot and is Zoned R7A, C2-3. The site allows for 40,000 buildable square feet as of right. The proceeds will fund the acquisition of the property and the preliminary site preparation work for a new building construction project.”

The site was sold by Kallarakos Realty for $13 million to a company called 30-75 21ST Street LLC., which is based in Darien, Conn. The deal closed on Oct. 28, although the sales contract was signed Feb. 10.
