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.
22-43 Jackson Avenue is expected to be finished next year.
