Construction has finally been completed on the 10-story, 37-unit mixed-use building under development at 42-60 Crescent Street, in the Court Square/Queens Plaza section of Long Island City. Photos of the finished product can be seen on the YIMBY Forums. The building, called Factory House, measures 56,711 square feet and rises 109 feet above street level to the top of its bulkhead. It contains 2,309 square feet of ground-floor retail, followed by residential units on the floors above. They will be condominiums, ranging from one- to four-bedrooms and averaging 1,189 square feet apiece. Rising Developers Group is both the developer and design architect. Alfredo T. Fredericks’s Elmhurst-based architecture firm is the architect of record. Occupancy can probably be expected soon.

At 42-60 Crescent Street, the 10-story, 37-unit Factory House is inching closer to its 2016 completion. The one- to four-bedroom, 626 to 2,102 square-foot condominiums are available for anywhere between $670,000 and $1.35 million. Rising Developers Group serves as both the designer and the developer, while Douglas Elliman is handling sales and marketing.
Long Island City’s architecture is slowly following the trend set in Williamsburg: big, glassy high rises and shorter residential buildings designed to mimic their early 20th century industrial neighbors. The latest of these factory-style projects is a 10-story apartment building underway at 42-60 Crescent Street.
In September of 2014, work kicked off at 42-60 Crescent Street, in Long Island City, where Rising Developers Group is building a 10-story, 40-condo-unit residential building, with 2,310 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. Dubbed Factory House, the building topped-out in April. Now façade installation is wrapping up and scaffolding is coming down, The Court Square Blog reports.
