The glass curtain wall is steadily climbing up the Skyline Tower’s superstructure in Long Island City. Located at 23-15 44th Drive, the residential skyscraper will soon stand 778 feet tall, making it the tallest building in New York outside of Manhattan. The 67-story project is designed by Hill West Architects and developed by United Construction & Development Group, FSA Capital, and Risland US Holdings LLC. Modern Spaces is the exclusive marketing and sales agency for the 802 residences, which are designed by Whitehall Interiors and will range in price from $500,000 to $4 million. The team has reportedly already sold more than $223 million in inventory since the soft launch in May. The development is also the first in Queens to break the $1 billion price mark.
New photos show the tower’s presence among the Long Island City skyline. The structure recently surpassed the Citigroup Building’s tiered crown, making it the tallest building in Queens. The Skyline Tower’s façade has currently risen about halfway up the superstructure. Once completed, the building will be clad in 358,538 square feet of glass, equivalent to a span of over six football fields.
Floors three through 37 will house studios, one-, and two-bedroom units. Floors 38 through 63 will have studios to three-bedroom homes, while levels 64 through 67 will house one- to four-bedrooms and the penthouses.
Amenities include a 75-foot-long, temperature-controlled indoor swimming pool, a spa with his-and-her locker rooms, a sauna and steam room, a fitness center, massage room, private yoga and pilates classes, aquatic fitness lessons, and group weight and cardio classes. Business support comes with messengers, couriers, and office organizing assistance. There will also be a pet care service that includes a pet spa, dog walking and daycare, grooming, behavioral training, and veterinary house calls. Concierge services include move-in assistance, housekeeping, home office tech support, furniture assistance, in-home chefs and catering, in-home salon services, personal shopping, and travel and transportation planning assistance.
Finally, there will be a children’s playroom, a laundry room, a third-floor common space with a business center, a landscaped outdoor terrace on the fifth floor, a secondary residential lounge with a demonstration kitchen, a private parking garage, storage units, a bicycle storage room that is capable of storing over 400 bicycles, and a doorman.
Completion is expected next year.
