Backhoes have just begun tearing up the earth to make way for a slim condo building at 42-44 Crescent Street in Long Island City. Now, YIMBY has snagged the first rendering of the project near Queensboro Plaza.
In July of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for an eight-story, 12-unit mixed-use building at 42-44 Crescent Street, in Long Island City’s Queens Plaza section. Now, The Court Square Blog reports schematics have been posted of the project on site. Maspeth-based Angelo Ng + Anthony Ng Architects Studio is designing, although no official renderings have been released yet. The new building will encompass 15,338 square feet and will include 2,060 square feet of commercial space on the ground-floor for a restaurant.
