Construction is now two stories above street level—a two-story increase since the end of May—on the two-towered, 48- and 41-story, 1,115-unit mixed-use development replacing 5Pointz at 22-44 Jackson Avenue, in the Court Square section of Long Island City. The latest photos of the site can be seen at The Court Square Blog.

G&M Realty is the developer and HTO Architect is behind the architecture. Completion is expected towards the end of 2017.
