Two timber houses in different parts of Astoria are going to facing the wrecking ball, according to Jan. 11 filings with the Buildings Dept.
A demolition permit was filed for a two-story, one-family house located at 31-18 31st Street. This street, located under the elevated N-train line, has undergone a great deal of development in the past decade with several large residential buildings going up.
The house was bought Dec. 18 for $2.2 million by Shazel Funding, according to city records. Shazel Funding is based out of Old Westbury, Long Island.
A permit for a new structure has yet to be filed.
Meanwhile, a two-story, two-family house located at 25-24 30th Drive is also slated to be demolished. The property was purchased in 2011 for $899,000.
