Single-Story Retail Buildings Being Renovated, Combined at 36-01 Broadway, Astoria

Morris Dweck, doing business as Brooklyn-based DII Enterprises, is planning to renovate and restore parts of the façade on the single-story, 10,000-square-foot commercial-retail building at 36-01 Broadway, located on the corner of 36th Street in Astoria. The project also includes combining the corner property with the single-story retail building at 36-11 Broadway. The corner building is very likely a former Childs Restaurant location, DNAinfo reported, which prompted local historical preservation organizations to urge the property owner to retain the building’s exterior details. The effort was successful and Midtown South-based Marin Architects is designing a renovation that respects existing design elements. The façade will be made mostly of brick and limestone. Completion is expected later this year.
