While two megaprojects, Astoria Cove and Hallets Point, inch toward reality in western Astoria, smaller developers have begun to eye the little peninsula that juts out into the East River, just south of Astoria Park. One such builder, Dr. Baldhevai Patel, hopes to build a six-story mixed-use development at 23-36 4th Street, between 26th and 27th Avenues.
John Kivotidis, head of Kivo Realty, has filed applications for a five-story, nine-unit residential building at 29-28 Newtown Avenue, in central Astoria, two blocks from the N and Q trains’ stop at 30th Avenue. The building will total 6,388 square feet, which means units will average a rental-sized 710 square feet apiece. Sugnam Chang’s Bensonhurst-based Basic Groups Corp. is the applicant of record, and an existing single-story building must first be demolished.
