Growth Along N/Q To Continue With 7-Story Development


Oct. 15, 2015 By Jackie Strawbridge

About a block from the sprawling seven-story development in progress at Broadway and 31st Street, a new seven-story residential development is planned along the N/Q.

Construction plans were filed last week with the Department of Buildings for the development at 30-13 31 St., right next to Grand Wine and Liquor off of 30th Avenue.

A flat, 2-story house currently sits at that address.

The proposed new building will stand seven stories with 17 units. Retail is planned for the first floor, and medical services are slated for the second.

Although developer Antonio Mourtil said it is “too early in the process” to discuss precise details, he noted that the property’s location to the train and Mount Sinai hospital make it appealing for healthcare providers.

“We thought that might be a good place for doctor’s offices, or anybody in the medical industry,” he said.

Mourtil added, “the neighborhood has everything – it has nightlife, has restaurants, it’s constantly improving. So it’s a place that we like to be.”
