The first renderings for 42-12 28th Street have been posted on-site; developer Heatherwood Communities is building the 58-story skyscraper, which will become the tallest residential tower in Brooklyn and Queens. The site is located in Long Island City’s Court Square neighborhood, and the architect of record is Goldstein, Hill, & West.
Going above what is typically posted to the sides of construction fences, the series of four images reveal the tower within its future surroundings; the aesthetic is simple and glassy, typical of new developments in Long Island City, though zig-zagging lines of a white material break up the facade’s monotony.
Above anything else, 42-12 28th Street’s defining characteristic will be its height, which will distinguish the structure from neighboring high-rises; rising 646 feet, it will stand only twelve feet shy of the soon-to-be un-monolithic One Court Square.
In terms of size, 42-12 28th Street will have 392,824 square feet of residential space — split between 477 units — and 5,878 square feet dedicated to retail. Zoning documents have additional information, covered previously on YIMBY.
Completion of 42-12 28th Street is expected in June of 2017.
