Construction is now 18 stories above street level on the 54-story, 790-unit residential project under development at 43-22 Queens Street, in the Court Square/Queens Plaza section of Long Island City. Progress on the structure can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The tower will rise 598 feet to the top of its bulkhead and encompass 712,747 square feet. The project will incorporate much of the former six-story Eagle Electric Manufacturing building, which will serve as the tower’s base. Apartments will be located on the second through 54th floors, with amenities mostly on the ground through fourth floors. Rose Development is behind the project and SLCE Architects is the architect. Completion is expected late next year.

Construction is now a single story above street level at the site of a planned 54-story 790-unit tower at 43-22 Queens Street, in the Queens Plaza/Court Square section of Long Island City. The progress can be seen in an update by The Court Square Blog. The 580-foot-tall building will encompass 712,747 square feet. Its residential units, rental apartments, should average 763 square feet apiece. Amenities in the building are listed in YIMBY’s previous update in June, when foundation work was underway for the tower portion. Work is also underway on the six-story portions of the former Eagle Electric Manufacturing building, which will be converted into residential apartments and incorporated into the tower. Rockrose Development is the developer and SLCE Architects is behind the design. Completion is expected in late 2017.
Foundation work is now underway on the 54-story, 790-unit residential redevelopment of the seven-story former Eagle Electric Manufacturing building at 43-22 Queens Street, in the Queens Plaza/Court Square section of Long Island City. The news comes as The Court Square Blog recently snapped some shots of the construction site. The latest building permits indicate the entire project will measure 712,747 square feet. The complex will feature rental apartments averaging 763 square feet apiece. Amenities include private residential storage, an inner courtyard, multiple tenant lounges, a fitness center, a bike storage room, laundry facilities, a library, a children’s playroom, and a rooftop terrace on the seventh floor. YIMBY revealed renderings of the SLCE Architects-designed project back in March of 2015. Over the past year or so, crews have gutted the existing building and conducted excavation work at the site. Rockrose Development is the developer, and completion is anticipated in late 2017.

Eighty percent of the building is still intact, and excavation has kicked off on Queens Street, where the tower portion will rise.
