The 16-story apartment building at 41-21 28th Street, rising half a block north of Queens Plaza, appears ready to receive exterior cladding, as indicated by scaffolds that wrap the structure. The building had risen three stories when we last provided an update in April. After rising at a pace of two-and-a-half floors per month, it was topped-out in September. The project is developed by All Year Management and designed by architect Karl Fischer.

Long Island City is hot. If you want one gauge of how hot, consider that YIMBY has written close to two dozen stories about or involving Long Island City just this year. While many projects are speeding along, one project – 41-21 28th Street – is moving a little more slowly, as seen in photos sent to us by our friend Tectonic.
41-21 28th Street has risen to its third level, on its way to its final height of 185 feet. The project, developed by All Year Management, will house 166 residential units spread across 126,718 square feet.
Early last summer, excavation kicked off at 41-21 28th Street, in Long Island City, where a 16-story, 166-unit mixed-use building is planned; YIMBY revealed renderings shortly afterwards. Today, foundation work is complete, and the structure is now rising above street level, according to The Court Square Blog. The building will include a small 675 square-foot retail space on the ground floor, and units will average 763 square feet. All Year Management is developing, Karl Fischer is designing, and completion is scheduled for late 2016.
Last year, All Year Management bought a warehouse at 41-21 28th Street in Long Island City for $17,000,000, and now YIMBY has the first look at the 16-story residential tower rising in its place between the Queensboro Bridge and 41st Avenue.
