Astoria, Queens, Fogarty Finger, Kaufman Astoria Studios, Museum of Moving Image

An aptly located residential building called the Marx is getting underway in Astoria. The seven-story building at 34-32 35th Street is a “stone’s throw away” from the Museum of the Moving Image and directly across from Kaufman Astoria Studios (think Sesame Street and Saturday Night Live). The building will replace two small houses and a parking lot and sits adjacent to a stalled construction site slated to give way to its own seven-story residential building.

The Marx is designed by Fogarty Finger Architects, who also designed One Murray Park, and will contain 33 units, likely rentals. It will feature a dark grey brick façade of large, evenly gridded square windows (the latest rage in NYC architecture) whose angled metal panels and glazing variations will create an interesting play of light and shadow.
