The first permits are up for a new 13-story development coming to 42-14 Crescent Street, in Long Island City’s Court Square neighborhood; Meadow Partners is listed as the site’s developer, and John Fotiadis is the architect of record.

Filings indicate that 42-14 Crescent Street will be mostly residential, spanning 39,879 square feet, though a 746 square-foot retail component will help enliven the streetscape. The development will total 45 units, and the structure will stand 158 feet tall.

Given the generous ceiling heights, something relatively high-end would seem likely, and as Court Square continues to boom, the neighborhood will see more upscale projects begin to rise. While 42-14 Crescent Street’s scope is relatively limited, the building will still present an opportunity to improve the streetscape, given the development will replace an unattractive low-rise that does not live up to the site’s potential.

Demolition permits for the existing structure were approved in March, and construction on Meadow Partners’ project is likely imminent. A vacant lot next door also begs for development, and with construction picking up across all of Long Island City, Crescent Street may soon be brimming with new projects.
