A seven-story apartment building at 21-13 31st Ave. in Astoria will soon replace three two-story homes, according to plans filed with the Department of Buildings.

The 56-unit will total 42,838 square feet of residential space and include several amenities such as a gym, bike storage, parking and a roof deck. The first floor will house three apartment units while the remaining floors will have seven to nine units each.

Meltzer/Costa & Associates, Architecture and Engineering is the architect on record. Park Construction Corp. in New Hyde Park purchased the three properties, totaling 14,356 square feet, for $9.8 million.

Currently, an auto repair shop sits on the first floor of 21-13 and 21-15 31st Ave.
