The site currently housing Astoria’s Callina’s Dance School could be converted into a seven-story development with a dance studio if a rezoning for the area is approved.
If approved for rezoning, the building—located at 35-10 Astoria Blvd.—would be 52,720 square feet and provide 36 units, 25 percent of which would be designated as affordable housing, while the other 13 units would be condominiums. The building would be designed by ARC Architecture + Design Studio.
According to the renderings, the dance studio will take up 2,800 square feet on the ground floor. It was unclear whether a new dance studio at the site would be operated by Callina’s or whether the school would relocate. The Queens Tribune could not reach Callina’s for comment by press time.
The building is also projected to provide 13 parking spaces, with nine being enclosed.
The site is being developed by Astoria Boulevard LLC. If rezoning is approved for the area, the building is expected to be completed by 2020.
