Back in September of 2015, piling work was underway for the 20-story, 110-unit mixed-use building planned at 42-10 27th Street, in the Queens Plaza section of Long Island City. Now, foundation work is underway at the site, with the first rebar sprouting from the ground, The Court Square Blog reports. Per the latest permits with the Department of Buildings, the 20-story, 212-foot-tall project will encompass 137,812 square feet. It will feature 8,645 square feet of ground-floor retail and its residential units should average 741 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Amenities include private residential storage, storage for 55 bikes, a parking garage on the second floor, and recreational areas on the 19th and 20th floors. Lions Group NYC is the developer, while Flushing-based Raymond Chan is the architect. Completion is expected in 2017.
