Permits have been filed for a 50-story mixed-use skyscraper at 45-03 23rd Street in Hunters Point, Queens, and today, YIMBY has an exclusive reveal of the first rendering for the project. Located at the intersection of 23rd Street and 45th Avenue, the corner lot is steps from the Court Square subway station, serviced by the E, M, G, and 7 trains. Charney Companies and Tavros Capital under the Court Square 45th Avenue LLC are the owners behind the applications.

A rendering by Fogarty Finger, the architect of record, shows an exterior of elongated grid of bronze-accented floor-to-ceiling glass and white terracotta panels that span the entire height of the superstructure. The skyscraper will sit on an offset series of landscaped setbacks.

The proposed 544-foot-tall development will yield 350,844 square feet of space, with 194,423 square feet designated for residential use, 100,000 square feet for commercial tenants, and 3,388 square feet for community facilities. Components for the building comprise 285 condominium units with two penthouse floors, Class A office space, and retail. The concrete-based structure will also have a cellar, mezzanine, and a 25-foot-long rear yard. Amenities include a 24/7 doorman, a fitness center, resident lounges, and bike storage.

In a piece by the New York Times that ran last week, developer Samuel Charney said that specially rated glass due to the proximity to the elevated train tracks “will make the apartments so silent you’ll be able to hear a pin drop.”

Demolition permits were filed in November 2019. An estimated completion date has not been announced.

  1. Isn’t this Court Square, not Hunters Point?

  2. Adam; I hear ya but according to Google Maps this is Hunters Point neighborhood and a Court Square neighborhood isn’t shown.

  3. It would have been appropriate if they had kept of the facade of the existing brownstones and had incorporated it in the design of the new strusture

    With the looming economic collapse, and the oversupply in this neighborhood already, this thing ain’t getting built anytime soon.

      Why you so worried, it is your house demolished, it is your investment, watch CNN fake journalist scare stories and takes everything what Evil and Brutal Communist China regime said as only true!!!

  5. This is court square not hunters points.

  6. There ought to be a law to ban demolition of affordable residences. That’s how we got into this affordability mess!

    • Those homes sold for 5 to 7 mil each and they were 2 and 3 families. The new building will have 100’s more units and will cost less per unit along with giving the neighborhood retail and a sorely needed community facility. We don’t have an affordability mess you just need to move to a place you can afford. Looks like LIC isn’t for you.

    When does the auction start?

  8. Last I knew, the final house on the corner didn’t sell. I’d like the see the ground level rendering of how that house will look with a skyscraper pushed up next to it.
