In February, YIMBY brought you two construction updates on the nearly topped out 58-story, 477-unit residential tower at 42-12 28th Street, in the Queens Plaza section of Long Island City. The project, dubbed Tower 28, has since topped out at 647 feet above street level, per the Court Square Blog, becoming the second tallest building in Queens and the city’s tallest residential building outside of Manhattan. The 398,702-square-foot tower will eventually contain rental apartments that average 823 square feet apiece. The bottom portions of the structure host a 50-car parking garage, bike storage, and many other amenities, in addition to 5,878 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Heatherwood Communities is the developer and Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is behind the design. Completion is expected in 2017.

  1. Amazing tower…it is very nice to see this building was climbed to the skyline.

  2. Heatherwood is the worst management. Take it from a former tenant–they do not care about the renters.
