An industrial portion of Astoria will become more residential with the addition of a seven-story, mixed-use apartment building.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story, 29-unit apartment building at 11-16 Main Ave. Currently, the one-story building sits on a block with mostly low-rise industrial buildings, many of which are adorned with art as part of the Welling Court Mural Project.
The developer, AKI Development, is planning a 20,648-square-foot building with 19,237 square feet for residential space and 1,411 square feet for commercial space. There will also be 72 parking spaces.
The building is served by the 30th Avenue and Astoria Boulevard N/W train stations and the Astoria ferry.
