It’s no longer just a rendering; the 54-story Eagle Electric Factory’s redevelopment at 43-22 Queens Street almost has its full façade, as construction nears the finish line. YIMBY last reported on the project one year ago, when construction had reached the 18th floor. Now, the tower isn’t far off from releasing its 790 new rental apartments, which average 763 square feet apiece. Rockrose Development is responsible for development.
The building rises to a height of 598 feet and yields 712,750 square feet dedicated to residential use. The most appealing element of the project’s design is on its western side, defined by a concrete wall vertically climbing to the pinnacle, resulting in a remarkable contrast with the rest of the glass design.
SLCE Architects is responsible for the design.
This project is one of several rising up in the Long Island City neighborhood surrounding Jackson Avenue. Downtown Queens is quickly becoming a significant player in the New York City skyline as these developments reach hundreds of feet in height.
