Developer Antonio Mourtil is planning to build a nine-story hotel with 48 rooms in Astoria at 30-17 31st Street, according to plans filed Tuesday with the Department of Buildings. The project would be roughly 19,000 square feet and include just over 5,500 square feet of community space, filings show.
Mourtil did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Astoria has seen a flurry of real estate activity in recent months. Urban American Management purchased a 70-unit multifamily portfolio in May for $20.5 million across two buildings at 30-58 and 30-64 34th Street, while Kushner Companies went into contract to sell four Astoria buildings on 38th Street and 30th Avenue in March to investor Karan Singh for $76 million. RockFarmer Properties also filed plans earlier this year for a 94,000-square-foot luxury condo building at 21-21 31st Street.
