Developers are planning a new seven-story, 56-unit residence for 31st Avenue near 21st Street, according to property documents.
Construction plans have been filed with the Department of Buildings for a residence at 21-17 31st Avenue, a few blocks from Socrates Sculpture Park. The building will stand on what were formerly three separate, contiguous properties, which were all acquired by a company called 31st Avenue Associates in October.
The building will include a gym, rooftop recreation space, bike storage and parking and 28 vehicle parking spaces, according to DOB documents.
A handful of two-story commercial and residential buildings currently occupy the property. Demolition permits for these structures were filed in September.
Developers could not be reached for comment.
There are $1000 a month studios all around Astoria . Why do we need more affordable housing?
…and $1500 in Astoria which is still very reasonable.
Yeah because astoria Long Island city doesn’t have enough free affordable housing with queens bridge, woodside houses, ravens wood, and astoria houses. To the freebie loving affordable hustlers the working man really is a sucker!
I THINK THAT IF THEY ARE GOING TO BUILD IT SHOULD BE FOR LOW INCOME AND MIDDLE CLASS THERE IS TO MANY APTS AROUND THAT NO ONE CAN AFFORD
Enough already! NO to congestion! NO to packed subways and no parking spots!
