Construction has broken ground at 29-15 40th Road, the site of a new residential building in Long Island City, Queens. Details are slim for the project, which is being designed by Fogarty Finger Architects and developed by SB Development, which also acquired the adjacent lot at 29-13 40th Road for $8.7 million over the fall. 29-15 40 RD LLC is listed as the owner and Alba Services Inc. served as the demolition contractor for the property, which is located on an interior lot bound by 40th Avenue to the north and 40th Road to the south.

Photographs taken in early December show the remaining debris from the demolition being hauled away from the partially unearthed lot. A lone excavator worked to clear away the former low-rise industrial structure.

The site is located between the Queens Plaza station to the south, servicing the E, M, and R trains, and the elevated 39th Avenue-Dutch Kills station to the north, servicing the N and W lines.

29-15 40th Road will be the third residential collaboration by SB Development and Fogarty Finger Architects in recent years, joining NOVA at 41-05 29th Street and Rise LIC at 29-17 40th Avenue.

Further details and a rendering have yet to be released.
