A new rendering has been revealed for 29-15 40th Road, an upcoming 12-story residential building in Long Island City, Queens. Few details have been made public about 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 last fall. LIC 40th Avenue Owner LLC is listed as the owner and SBGC LLC is the general contractor for the property, which is located on an interior lot bound by 40th Avenue to the north and 40th Road to the south.

The main rendering shows an industrial-inspired design with metal paneling framing a grid of floor-to-ceiling windows on the main northern elevation. The first story features more expansive glass for what will likely be retail frontage, and the two levels above are enclosed in a tight window grid surrounded by with what appears to be white stone. Glass railings line the flat roof parapet and the setbacks on the ninth and 11th floors.

Excavation has begun to progress at the site since our last update in December, when crews were still in the process of hauling out rubble from the previous occupants’ demolition.

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 trains.

29-15 40th Road is 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.

29-15 40th Road’s anticipated completion date is slated for spring 2026, as noted on site.

    It shows that there are no problems working together, and what about ponds that stay on the ground? Thanks.

    Nice! Much better than the usual new dullards in LIC.
