Pre-filing permits have been submitted for a 24-story mixed-use building at 41-05 29th Street in Long Island City, Queens. The site is at the heart of a burgeoning downtown area quickly establishing itself along Jackson Avenue, Northern Boulevard, and Queens Boulevard. SB Development Group is behind the project.
The 290-foot tall structure will yield 69,980 square feet within, with 66,940 square feet dedicated to residential use, and 2,050 square feet dedicated for ground-floor retail use. 84 apartments will be created, averaging 797 square feet apiece, indicating larger rental units. Tenants will have access to a fitness center, lobby, library, and children’s lounge. Onsite storage will be created with a capacity for 41 bicycles.
The development is two blocks away from the Queens Plaza subway station, serviced by the E, M, and R trains. Five blocks away is the Queensboro Plaza subway station, serviced by 7, N and W trains.
Fogarty Finger Architecture will be responsible for the design. A preliminary rendering has been floating across several websites, though it’s unlike that the design is final. As it is, the building appears to offer a contemporary ode to the Flatiron building.
Demolition permits were filed for the existing structure in December of 2017. The estimated completion date has not been announced.
