Crews are tearing down a long- shuttered building that housed a lumberyard at 32nd Street and Astoria Boulevard to make room for a sprawling residential development at the site.
Former Lumberyard To Become Residences
Construction crews will start work this month on a 39,000-square-foot, 25-unit residential complex that will boast underground parking for 13 vehicles and a 4,000-square foot, ground-floor community center, Lawrence Ross, Besen Associates development representative, said.
The six-story structure will feature six studio units, 15 one-bedroom units and four two-bedroom units, Ross said.
Local homeowners were pleased to learn that the site will be transformed into residential units... "It's good to hear that we won't be losing parking spaces to another business."
Yes, it's much better to lose parking spaces to other residents instead!
