A six-story mixed-use building consisting of 92 units will be going up on the corner of Broadway and 29th Street in Astoria.
The development will go up at 25-33 Broadway where a number of vacant storefronts are located, according to documents filed with the DOB on Dec. 3. The site was previously occupied by a row of one-story storefronts consisting of Sac’s Place restaurant, Joy Dental and Lanzee Department Store.
The owner, listed as George Tsilogiannis (under BQ 29, LLC), is behind the new development.
Tsilogiannis has filed permits to demolish the site– as well as the adjoining site at 25-21 Broadway, which contains five additional vacant storefronts. These storefronts were formerly occupied by Fatima’s Halal Kitchen, The Strand Smokehouse, Start Fresh Express Laundry Center, The Grind NYC as well as Patel Art and Frame.
It isn’t clear what is planned for the 25-21 Broadway sites since no plans have been filed.
The eight businesses along the row have all closed down—or relocated elsewhere—with some of the spaces being vacant for years.
