A residential building is still coming to 8-29 Astoria Boulevard, but it will be slightly smaller than originally planned.

Astoria Boulevard Construction, an entity tied to developer Rukhsana Samdani, filed plans with the Department of Buildings on Monday for a six-story, 38,000-square-foot project at 8-29 Astoria Boulevard. The development will house 47 residential units spread across just over 32,500 square feet, while the remaining 5,550 square feet will be used as community space.

The developer had previously planned a slightly larger building at the site, which would have spanned roughly 42,000 square feet with 50 residential units, according to YIMBY. The company purchased 8-29 Astoria Boulevard for just over $3 million in 2015.

Samdani did not respond to a request for comment.

Other nearby projects include Strategic Capital Metropolitan’s 50-unit condo development at 3-11 27th Avenue and developer Antonio Mourtil’s 48-key hotel at 30-17 31st Street.
