Permits Filed: 14-33 31st Avenue

The first permits are up for a new residential building in between Long Island City and Astoria, at 14-33 31st Avenue. Sithonia LLC is developing the site, and the architect of record is Caliendo; the firm’s website has images of their portfolio, though none are clear and labels are indecipherable.

Despite the lack of renderings, the DOB filings reveal basic details; the building will span 40,999 square feet, which will be divided between 56 apartments. 14-33 31st Avenue will stand five stories and 50 feet tall.

Though the design may be undisclosed, the site’s history is cause for concern, as it was formerly occupied by the L. B. Russell Chemical Plant. Demolition permits were filed last year, and while the storage facility may be coming down, its legacy may linger on, as the transition to residential will likely require remediation efforts.
