Construction is getting close to topping out at Queens Plaza Park, aka Sven, a 755-foot-tall residential skyscraper at 27-29 Queens Plaza North in Long Island City, Queens. Designed by Handel Architects and developed by The Durst Organization, the reflective glass curtain is also nearing the halfway mark of the concave-shaped superstructure. Selldorf Architects is the interior designer for the 67-story project, which is alternately addressed as 29-37 41st Avenue.
The Cove at 43-12 Hunter Street sits in the middle of Long Island City, Queens. The detailed grey-colored curtain wall of windows and metal panels cover the entire 18-story, reinforced concrete edifice. Right now the final touches remain on the ground-floor envelope, sidewalk, and interiors. SLCE Architects is the designer of the building and Slade Architecture is in charge of the interior design. Rockrose Development is the developer of the triangular site, which was previously purchased for $1 million back in 2006. The Cove will yield 123 rental units with 37 units being affordable homes, or roughly 30 percent of the total inventory.
Exterior work is getting close to completion on Long Island City‘s Skyline Tower, the tallest skyscraper in the outer boroughs. Located at 23-15 44th Drive, the 778-foot-tall residential 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 nearly $1 billion edifice is now almost entirely enclosed in glass, with only the ground floor and crown left to be completed.
Façade work is progressing on 21-59 44th Drive, a topped-out six-story residential building from Z Architecture in Long Island City, Queens. Located at the northern corner of 44th Drive and 23rd Street, the property will contain 20 units, 2,600 square feet of retail space, and 361 square feet of community facilities.
A stop work order has been placed on 27-49 Jackson Avenue in Long Island City, Queens, halting construction around the halfway mark of the 146-foot-tall residential building. Upon inspection, it appears that progress on the 4,000-square-foot plot has been stagnant for quite some time. Designed by Raymond Chan Architect and developed by ARCFE, the structure began construction in the summer of 2018 and steadily continued to ascend until last fall. The 14-story building will eventually contain 9,873 of residential space split among 37 homes, as well as 1,739 square feet of commercial space. iX Construction is the general contractor.
