Long Island City’s development boom is kicking into high gear, and permits for another major residential tower have just been filed. Located at 29-32 Northern Boulevard, the new building will rise 43 floors and 473 feet, and contain a total of 415 units. Most of the site is a vacant lot, but a small building is also on the property, and must be demolished before excavation can begin.
29-32 Northern Boulevard is close to several other construction sites, and is immediately around the corner from two new hotels on Queens Plaza North; beyond sharing a neighborhood, the three developments have another commonality, which is proximity to the Dutch Kills Green. The park seems to be playing a factor in the immediate vicinity’s revival, and goes a long way towards remediating the lack of green space in Long Island City.
The developer of 29-32 Northern Boulevard is listed as Simon Dushinsky, and the architect of record is the SBJ Group. While the lot is currently vacant, construction should soon begin; the Court Square skyline will soon be dominated by cranes, and 29-32 Northern Boulevard will be fairly prominent until new infill developments surround the site. In addition to apartments, the development will have 13,000 square feet of retail space.
No completion date has been announced – and permits were literally filed last week – but construction should begin in the not-too-distant future.
