Work Starts At C-Town Site


June 3, 2015 By Jackie Strawbridge 

Construction appears to be in gear at Astoria’s C-Town supermarket, where 64 apartments are set to rise.

Last week, the Department of Buildings approved plans to put four floors of apartments on top of the existing first floor, currently occupied by the supermarket.

Building plans call for 32 underground parking spaces, bike storage, recreation space and terraces.

Neither property owners nor C-Town management could be reached for comment. It is unclear whether and for how long the supermarket would close during construction.

Construction equipment is fenced into the parking lot taking up about five spaces.

Meanwhile, the King of Falafel food truck, which sits on Broadway next to the C-Town parking lot, posted on its Facebook on Tuesday that it will remain open during construction.

Yeah just what Astoria needed… more housing for scum bag transplants.


For the zoning in this area i thought they could go higher. this looks exactly like the renovation on the corner where Uncle George’s was.


It has been reported elsewhere for several months now that the c-town will close during construction and will return completely refurbished.

dust and construction dirt always makes food taste a lot better, stupid habibis

Save Astoria

Of course. Why would they close? They will get the business of hungry construction workers.
