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.
