A two-story house in Astoria is currently being bulldozed and will be replaced by a four-story residential building.

Plans were filed Tuesday for the construction of a four-story building at 30-75 32nd Street that will contain seven units. The building will be 50 feet tall, with 4,875 square feet dedicated for residential use. There will be additional space for a laundry room.

There will be one apartment on the first floor, two apartments on both the second and third floors and two on the fourth floor.

One apartment on the fourth floor will have second level penthouse space.

The building is a block and a half away from the 30th Avenue station on the N and W lines.

Joe Marano, of 30-75 Holding LLC, is the property owner. Gerald J Caliendo Architect is the designer.

Astoria moves ever closer to being generic. Would be much better to see these old house remodeled (removing the ugly stoop extension for one) and if the owner wants more space, then with an addition.

In all fairness a couple homes should be demolished to make way for a parking garage. Preferably one covered in brutalist concrete. That is clearly future forward-thinking yesss!!

Just saying that I’ve lived in an area with permit parking. It doesn’t work in the long run and is a pain in the *ss for residents. We should simply be discouraging car usage and ownership in the first place. (Of course, the MTA has to be fixed).

Discourage car usage? You mean force everyone to take public transport and use Citibike. Just fix the MTA already and more people will use it and get rid of their cars. Good luck fixing the MTA diBlasio and Cuomo can’t seem to figure out how to work so well with each other and solve the problem.
