The mid-rise interior of Long Island City’s skyscraper district at Queens Plaza/Court Square is about to get another addition in the form of a six-story, eight-unit building at 42-43 27th Street. The builder, New York Fast General Construction, lives up to their name as construction is moving at a rapid pace. When we last checked in at the beginning of March, excavation was only starting. Now, a month and a half later, more than half of the foundation walls in the basement are complete, with metal rebar ready for assembly of the ground floor.

In December of 2014, YIMBY reported on filings for a six-story, eight-unit mixed-use building at 42-43 27th Street, in the Queens Plaza section of Long Island City. Then in the spring of 2015, the single-story occupant was demolished. Now, The Court Square Blog reports that excavation work is underway and a schematic drawing of the new building is posted on-site. Chang Hwa Tang’s Flushing-based Tan Architect is responsible for the design of the 9,372-square-foot project. There will be 1,450 square feet of ground-floor retail space and the residential units should average a rental-sized 694 square feet apiece. Xi Zhao, doing business as a Rego Park-based LLC, is the developer. Completion is expected in the summer of 2017.
