Renderings have been revealed by Hill West Architects for Court Square City View Tower, expected to rise at 23-15 44th Drive, located on the corner of 23rd Street in the heart of Long Island City. The architect’s website states the mixed-use project will rise 66 stories and contain 802 condominium units.
In early 2016, YIMBY reported the developer, United Construction & Development Group, filed a request with the Federal Aviation Administration to build a 984-foot-tall structure. In September, the FAA concluded that the project could rise 752 feet above street level, and the latest renderings appear to be consistent with that height limit.
The latest new building applications, which have not yet been amended to reflect the height reduction, describe a 78-story, 702-unit mixed-use tower that would measure 999,664 square feet. The 79,026-square-foot site is currently vacant and construction is slated to begin this year.
