As three residential skyscrapers begin their ascent skyward at 28-10 Jackson Avenue, in Long Island City, renderings for them have finally surfaced per the Wall Street Journal. The towers will stand 43, 45, and 53 stories, respectively, and will together encompass an enormous 1,687,776 square feet. There will be 1,900 residential units and 13,807 square feet of ground-floor retail space. In addition to a slew of amenities, the complex will sport a private 2.5-acre park in the center. Goldstein, Hill, & West Architects is behind the design. Tishman Speyer and H&R Real Estate Investment Trust are the developers.
A rendering has been revealed of Tishman Speyer’s planned two-tower, 1.1-million-square-foot office complex at 28-07 Jackson Avenue (a.k.a. 28-10 Queens Plaza South), in the Queens Plaza section of Long Island City. The towers – dubbed One and Three Gotham Center – will stand 27 stories, or 396 feet, in height. As YIMBY reported in June, new building applications indicate a common four-story base will include roughly 30,000 square feet of retail space, restaurants, a food hall, and a parking garage for cars and bikes. The rendering also depicts an outdoor terrace on the fifth floor. 800,000 square feet of office space in the complex has already been pre-leased. One tenant includes WeWork, which is set to take 250,000 square feet. Another is Bloomingdale’s, which has reserved 550,000 square feet of office space, Crain’s reported. Doha-based Qatari Diar is co-developing the project, while Financial District-based MdeAS Architects is designing. Excavation is expected to begin in early 2017, with completion scheduled for 2019. One and Three Gotham Center will join the 22-story, 700,000-square-foot Two Gotham Center located immediately to the north. Tishman Speyer developed that in 2011.
