Last September, YIMBY brought you news of a 26-story, 115-unit mixed-use building planned for 27-21 44th Drive, in Long Island City, which Silvercup Properties is developing. The Court Square Blog now reports demolition of the site’s former single-story structure is nearly complete. The DOB also approved permits in April, so construction is likely now imminent.

The Court Square Blog has spotted on-site renderings at 27-07 43rd Avenue, in Long Island City, where a nine-story, 108-room hotel building is planned. The project has been revised since YIMBY revealed plans in 2014. Foundational work is currently underway, and completion is slated for Spring 2016.
Despite the construction boom that includes roughly a dozen towers of fifty floors or more, Long Island City is still relatively lacking in name-brand hotel projects.

The project’s permit filings appeared this past December.
