Gulf Station on 21st Street to be Demolished, To be Replaced With Apartments


Dec. 17, 2018 By Christian Murray

A Manhattan-based developer has filed plans to demolish a gas station on 21st Street and replace it with apartments and ground floor retail space.

The plans call for the demolition of the Gulf Station at 21-09 21st Street. The property was bought by Barry J Leon, a partner in Astoria 2101 LIC, for $4.35 million in February.

Last week, the firm filed plans to build a 3-story, 19-unit building, which will include ground-floor retail space and medical facilities. The structure will be 33-feet tall.

The plans also include 13 parking spaces.

We need more Retail Stores….some people dont like the trains or buses…They want to shop close to where they live….I live in Queens bridge….i dont travel how to i have to shop on line that’s not fair…Every project that’s shopping stores close by them…We are the largest project in the country and we dont have stores to shop…thats not fair…just because we are 5 minutes away from the City…We can bring alot of money to the city…No you guys want apartments and hotels…


There is already empty retail across the street from the gas station because no small business can
afford the rent so who’s going to rent the ground floor retail besides a bank?


It used to be fairly easy to find a parking spot in Astoria. Now there is serious competition. This will make it worse. But now DeBlasio can afford to hire more incompetent staffers/friends with the kickback he got from this.

Astoria is overcrowded.
Maybe a YMCA or another public school would be more appropriate for our community.


Astoria is being ruined any space put a house up Astoria is too overcrowded and getting worse developers are ruining this once beautiful Town we call Astoria


I agree we don’t need any more commercial buildings like storage units, but we absolutely need more residential buildings.

When was the last time you tried to move to a different place in Astoria?

And for goodness sake, it is replacing that eye sore of a gas station.
