New 31st Street Development On The Market; 15 One-Bedrooms At $2,350


July 13, 2016 By Michael Florio

A new development on 31st Street near Astoria Boulevard is now accepting residents, with rents for one-bedrooms running roughly $2,300 a month.

The seven-story building, located at 25-34 31st Street, has 16 apartments up for grabs, according to realtor Luca DiCiero of NY Space Finders.

Of the 16 units, 15 are one-bedroom apartments. Each unit is roughly 600 square feet, according to building developer and owner Michael Prete. Each unit also includes a front and rear terrace. Rent is set at $2,350 for each unit.

The top floor is a penthouse with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and three terraces. The penthouse is roughly 1,100 square feet. Rent is set at $5,000, according to DiCiero.

Each floor has its own laundry room, as well as a space to throw out trash.

“Residents won’t have to carry their garbage downstairs,” Prete said.

Each apartment will include radiant floor heating, as well as insulation to muffle train noise, according to DiCiero.

“Mike [Prete] did a great job to make these state of the art,” he said.

DiCiero is expecting residents to be able to move in on Sept. 1.

NY Space Finders began accepting applications this week, but all the units remain up for grabs, DiCiero said. Those interested in applying can visit or email them at

Also up for rent is the ground floor retail space. The space offers 2,200 square feet, as well as an outdoor garden and patio that provides an additional 1,300 square feet, according to Prete.

Turn Steinway street into a parking lot. Lets get rid of these animals.


These people are insane ruined Astoria I grew up here when nobody knew about it all of a sudden they want to come here go back let Astoria be.

Magic Time

If no one moved to Astoria then eventually there wouldn’t be anyone living in Astoria.

Certain people will always move away. If people move away and no one moves in, then Astoria would die out. People aren’t having kids fast enough to replenish the population.

You have to be an idiot to spend that kind of rent on an ugly box, by a subway. Friggin lowlife transplants ruined my city.


Exactly! We need to blame the ones building the crazy expensive apartments, not those who can afford the rent.


Exactly. The developers building and renting these overpriced apartments are shitting on our neighborhood.
You can’t blame someone looking to move here who can afford the rent and needs a place to live
On Astoria Blvd is the ugliest orange and grey brick building, rents come out to nearly the same or more price per square foot when compared to Long Island city. Most disgusting architecture I’ve ever seen


Low life transplants helped build the city. You don’t become the financial center of the world without businesses recruiting talent internationally.

That is the case in every world class city. That has been the case in NYC since the beginning of NYC. Detroit is a city that is ruined. Youngstown, OH is a ruined city. New York is not a ruined city.


Yes I am from the mid-west and am dumb as a rock and will pay to live next to the elevated train for 5K a month. Just call me sh*t4brains
