At the end of 2018, residents began moving into the 467 units at ALTA LIC. The 44-story high-rise, located at 29-22 Northern Boulevard, was designed by the Stephen B. Jacobs Group and developed by partners Simon Baron Development and Quadrum Global. Only ongoing interior work at the 11,372-square-foot retail space reminds passersby of recent construction. Already taller towers rise next door, however ALTA’s pivotal location, expressive façade, and distinctive crown assure the skyscraper’s enduring prominence on the rapidly-growing Long Island City skyline.
Construction has nearly wrapped on a new residential property located adjacent to the elevated portions of the N and W subway lines in Long Island City. The low-rise building sits mid-block at 36-27 31st Street with TCO approvals anticipated for October 2018.
The opening of 30-02 39th Avenue, in Long Island City, Queens, will bring another 428 rental units to the market. The site is on the same block as the 39th Avenue subway station, serviced by the N and W trains. The project is being named ARC, and The Lightstone Group is responsible for development.
Today YIMBY has both the reveal, and a construction update on 25-16 37th Avenue, aka ‘The Smyth,’ in Long Island City’s Dutch Kills neighborhood. Excavation is nearly complete, and foundation work is expected to begin shortly.
A seven-story concrete frame awaits façade installation at 25-11 38th Avenue, in northern Long Island City. Tamares Development’s 38,568-square-foot project contains a light manufacturing facility at ground level and 32 residential units above. RSVP Architecture Studio is responsible for the industrial-inspired, dark-paneled design. Foremost Contracting & Building, LLC serves as the general contractor.
