Construction is progressing behind scaffolding at 21-59 44th Drive, a six-story residential building designed by Z Architecture in Long Island City, Queens. The reinforced concrete edifice is located at the northern corner of 44th Drive and 23rd Street and is slated to yield a total of 20 units, 2,600 square feet of retail space, and 361 square feet of community facilities.
Construction is nearing the finish line on Long Island City‘s Skyline Tower, a 778-foot-tall residential skyscraper and the current holder of the title of the tallest structure in the outer boroughs. Nearly all of the reflective glass curtain wall has been installed on the 68-story building, with only the first two floors and the decorative crown awaiting the final cladding. Located at 23-15 44th Drive, the tower is designed by Hill West Architects and developed by United Construction & Development Group, FSA Capital, and Risland US Holdings LLC. Modern Spaces is the exclusive marketing and sales agency for the 802 residences, which are designed by Whitehall Interiors. The project is expected to cost $1 billion.
YIMBY passed by the site of 27-49 Jackson Avenue in Long Island City, Queens, which is supposed to be a 146-foot-tall residential building. However construction progress remains paused around the halfway mark. The 4,000-square-foot site rests among a number of taller surrounding skyscrapers and would be a modest addition to the neighborhood. Designed by Raymond Chan Architect and developed by ARCFE, work started nearly two years ago and is planned to, hopefully, top out as a 14-story superstructure with 9,873 of residential space split among 37 homes. iX Construction is the general contractor.
Construction is complete and tenants have begun moving into The Kent House, a seven-story mixed-use building at 187 Kent Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Located between North 3rd Avenue and Metropolitan Avenue, the project is designed by Diego Aguilera Architects P.C. and developed by CW Realty Management, which purchased the site for $43 million. The 140,036-square-foot structure contains 96 homes.
Construction has partially topped out at 45-18 Court Square, a six-story addition to an existing structure in Long Island City, Queens. Designed by Perkins + Will and developed by King Street Properties, Knight Newmark Frank, and GFP Real Estate, the property will house a life science facility called Innolabs. The adjoining six-story building is also in the process of being renovated and connected to the new development.
