A sprawling new residential development at 30-77 Vernon Boulevard from Cape Advisors and Wainbridge Capital will bring over 500 rental apartments to the Astoria waterfront area (h/t Yimby). The 522,000-square-foot construction site on two-and-a-half acres of land will be comprised of three adjacent buildings designed by Fogarty Finger. New renderings show a white and gray façade with rooftop recreation areas; amenity spaces will include a private courtyard, indoor and outdoor lounges, a fitness center and a rooftop pool East River and Manhattan skyline views.

The site is a block to the north of the Socrates Sculpture Garden and follows the addition of the Astoria ferry stop two years ago. As CityRealty reports, the new project will rise near a planned mixed-use condominium at 30-55 Vernon Boulevard and the Durst Organization’s 10 Halletts Point megaproject among a handful of new residential options. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2021.
