The building on 31st Street near Ditmars Boulevard is currently home to a Subway sandwich shop, Cohen’s Optical, The Rock Health & Fitness Club, two recently closed venues, and a second-floor law firm.

A spokesperson for Manhattanbased A&H Acquisitions, managing partner of the project, said a small- format Target store would occupy 47,000 square feet of a new building that will go up at the site. A yet-to-be announced retailer will occupy the remainder of the new building, real estate sources said.

It is unclear when demolition will take place at the existing building. The developer has not announced an expected completion date for the new building.

On another local note, officials at discount retailer Marshalls have agreed to lease a portion of a building under construction at 22-06 31st Street in Astoria, according to a spokesperson for A&H Acquisitions. A&H is partnering in the development of a commercial building at the site, the spokesperson said.

Marshalls opened its first western Queens store on 48th Street near Northern Boulevard in Long Island City more than a decade ago—one of the “Shops On 48th Street.”—Liz Goff
