Queens-based property owner Tajuddin Takoor has filed applications for a five-story, 10-unit residential building at 30-18 14th Street, in western Astoria. The structure will measure 9,378 square feet and its residential units should average 773 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. There will be a single apartment on the ground floor, followed by three units each on the second, third and fourth floors. One of the fourth-floor apartments will be a duplex and will also take up the entire fifth floor. Murat Mutlu’s Garment District-based architectural firm is the architect of record. The 39-foot-wide, 3,908-square-foot lot is currently occupied by an attached two-story house. Demolition permits have not been filed. The 30th Avenue stop on the N/Q trains is seven blocks away.
Murat Multu Architect
In early June, YIMBY revealed renderings of Investmates’ planned five-story, four-condo-unit residential building at 78 Freeman Street, in northern Greenpoint, two blocks in from the East River. Now applications have been filed, and the building will measure 4,959 square feet, just shy of the 5,000 square-foot figure we reported a few weeks ago. International Office of Architects is designing, while Murat Multu Architect is serving as the applicant of record. An existing two-story, two-unit townhouse must first be demolished.
