Six story building to go up on 31st Street, being developed by HOCA


Oct. 27, 2016 Staff Report

The Hellenic Orthodox Community of Astoria is developing a mixed-use building across 31st Street from where the church is located.

According to a permit filed with the Department of Buildings, the HOCA is looking to build a six-story building at 30-67 31st Street, which is currently an empty lot.

The proposed building would have 3,223 square feet of community space on the first floor, and ten apartments on floors two through six, two per floor. The residential area would span 8,009 square feet.

HOCA has enlisted Astoria-based Anastasios Giannopoulos as the architect for the project.

The Saint Demetrios Church, the home of the Hellenic Orthodox Community of Astoria, is located directly across the street from the proposed building. The church was founded in 1927, and since then, the community has grown and expanded, building a school for Greek-American children and a large cathedral on the property.

Though the church did not responded to request for comment, this building will be a new addition to its complex.
