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.
A permit for a new building has yet to be filed.
good.. those houses are ugly
What’s ugly are all these cheap shoddily built newer buildings that morons keep spending money on so they can tell their friends that they live in astoria
Oh you mean those new homes you wish you could afford when you were 20 something. You sound so jealous and bitter.
more money in the politicans pockets as always –
Hopefully it will be a residential building! Residential buildings are better than that huge medical building (which seems vacant after 3 years) and the retail stores building (in progress) at Ditmars.
Cooool maaaaaaaan, we need rooms for more hippysters. Maaaaan.
More genericizing of Astoria. Goodbye neighborhood character.
