Seven-story mixed-use facility enters development in Astoria, Queens
A mixed-use community facility is nearing development in Astoria, Queens. The new project is going to have seven stories and will be addressed at 30-14 Crescent Street, just six blocks away from the 30th Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the N and W trains. Permits for the project have already been filed with the city. JWC Architect Engineer will design the project, and The Church of the Redeemer is the one responsible for this development. The new proposal shares its site with their existing facility, which was built back in 1866.
Nevertheless, plans are not entirely clear. We do not know if developers intend to demolish the existing site or to integrate the new project into the old building. There is no update regarding this project in the website owned by the Church.
Even though the previously mentioned lack of details, we know the structure will be 70 feet tall and will span over 105k sf. The Church has in fact confirmed some room on the first floor will be destined for office space. Medical facilities will also be included in the new project.
Because the lack of info we mentioned, there is no surprise a completion date has not been announced. Demolition permits are still in need to be filed. [NY Yimby]
