Going Up! Developments In Astoria.
By Ilija Sekulovski
Things are definitely changing. Prices are getting higher, as are the buildings, stations are more crowded, businesses are popping up, as are different types of restaurants, bringing a whole new range of cuisines. Whether you like it or not, things are happening in Astoria, and perhaps the most noticeable change, are the residential buildings changing our skyline.
So here are some of the top developments coming soon:
A 33 unit development making its way to 34-32 35th Street. Located in Kaufman Studios Arts District, and named after the legendary Marx Brothers, the units will include one and two bedroom apartments and will have a price tag of $600,000 to $1 million. But if you're thinking of buying, get in quick, as over 20% have already been scooped up, according to therealdeal.
This luxury rental building will be opening up quite soon (fall) and is located at 30-40 21 Street. Studios are starting at $1,100. One bedrooms $2,400 and two-bedrooms are going for $2,800. The luxury seven story rentals were developed by The Tsilo Group.
31-57 31st Street:
Right now all you can see is a 26,000 square foot parking lot, but soon, you will be seeing a seven story, 114 unit rental development. Spanning more than 100,000 square feet, the property will be offering one, two and three bedroom apartments and will have, according to therealdeal, a yoga terrace, gym and courtyard terrace. If that wasn't enough, there will also be a 20,000 square foot space going towards retail.
76 condo units, 73,502 square feet residential space, 14,000+ square feet retail opening next year, this place will certainly stand out on Broadway.
C-Town was closed a few months ago, and in it's place, a new and improved C-Town along with condos up above. The hopeful 5 story development will have 64 apartments with retail on the ground floor. There will also be parking space underground.
