Over the summer, YIMBY reported on applications for a 28-story, 296-unit residential building with retail space at 45-40 Vernon Boulevard, in Long Island City’s Hunters Point neighborhood. Renderings surfaced last week of the ShoP-designed project, which will actually include two additional new buildings, taking the form of smaller 14- and eight-story structures. Also, the existing and dilapidated four-story Paragon factory will be redeveloped rather than razed. A zoning variance must first be obtained, and besides the Paragon factory, other warehouses will need to be demolished. Simon Baron Development and Quadrum Global are developing.
