Plans were filed late last month for a new, mixed-use building at 30-90 Steinway St. in Astoria.
The six-story building, which will house five apartment units along with commercial space, is proposed to replace a tiny, single-level storefront at the location. Plans for the new construction were filed with the Department of Buildings on Nov 22.
The entire structure will be 69 feet tall, with 6,696 square feet of available space; 812 square feet will be used for commercial space on the first floor, while the other 5,884 square feet will comprise the building’s apartment units.
Plans for the narrow structure reveal each floor — from the second to the sixth — will house a single apartment, with a duplex apartment being built on the top level.
The building will be located between 30th and 31st Avenues — seven blocks away from the N/W at the 30th Street subway station and a similar distance to the R train on Steinway.
Steinway Equities has owned the property since 1999, according to City records. The current storefront was erected in 1930.
