In Astoria, they're razing a parking lot to put up a rental building, which is sort of like how the song goes. (And how the car-displacement trend goes, too.) A trio of developers is putting up a 114-apartment project spread over seven stories at the intersection of Broadway and 31st Street. Brownstoner Queens has the first look at the SLCE-designed blocky red buildingwith lots of ground-floor retail space. The units themselves will range from studios to three-bedrooms; amenities include a lounge, a gym, a courtyard/terrace with barbecue grills and a yoga studio. Permits are approved, and completion is slated for the third quarter of 2016.
