The Prime, a 120,000-square-foot mixed-use development at 22-43 Jackson Avenue in Long Island City, Queens, is taking shape. Scaffolding and netting shroud the entire façade, with work on the blue-colored waterproofing membrane visible behind the screen. SRA Architecture + Engineering is the designer of the 11-story building, which is being developed by Circle F. Ryan Serhant of The Serhant Team and Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing: New York is head of sales and marketing for the 71 residential units, which average around 900 square feet apiece. Interiors are being designed by Andres Escobar of Lemay + Escobar.

Photos show the superstructure rising directly along Jackson Avenue, in a section of Long Island City that has undergone a substantial transformation over the past few years.

The structure will contain 63,956 square feet of residential space and 11,725 square feet dedicated for commercial use. Residences will range from one- to three-bedroom units and begin at $675,000. Occupants on the upper floors will have views of the Midtown skyline and the Queensboro Bridge. The project is located near a number of subway lines such as the elevated 7 train at Court Square and the E and M trains at Court Square-23rd Street.

The renderings below and in the featured image show the outside portion above the glass retail podium will be covered in a skin of white and gray panels, while balconies protrude from several corners of the structure.

  1. “Occupants on the upper floors will have views of the Midtown skyline and the Queensboro Bridge”

    Until something else gets put up and blocks their view completely. Such is life in Long Island City.

    PS – What’s the total count of new apartments coming online in the radius of the Court Square stop? Two thousand? Three thousand? More? That’s going to be a really great subway experience a year or two from now.

  2. @ASensibleMan – You should see the single set of stairs and escalator to/from the 7 platform during rush hour. When it gets dangerously crowded they have to turn off the escalator. The Skyline Tower will have a new entry way to the E, but they really missed the mark by not establishing a secondary connection point to the 7 there.
