Over the summer, foundation work began on Ekstein Development’s nine-story, 86-unit residential building at 25-19 43rd Avenue, in Long Island City’s Court Square neighborhood. Steel beams and rebar are now a floor above street level, according to The Court Square Blog. The 90,173 square-foot project will have 68,145 square feet of residential space and is being designed by GF55 Partners. Dubbed Dutch LIC, the residential units will be condominiums, ranging from studios to two-bedrooms. Completion is currently expected in January of 2017.
In May of 2015, YIMBY revealed renderings of the first building to be constructed at Hallets Point, the seven-building, 2,404-unit mega-development planned in western Astoria. Later that summer, we reported on the building’s applications, which call for a 22-story, 224-unit residential building with a 25,350 square-foot supermarket at 26-01 1st Street. Now, the Durst Organization is planning, on Thursday, to hold a groundbreaking ceremony for the building, according to DNAinfo. The Dattner Architects-designed structure will encompass 520,913 square feet in total, 368,745 square feet of which will be residential space. Completion of 26-01 1st Street is expected in 2017.
Back in April of 2014, YIMBY brought you news of Ciampa Organization’s planned 10-story residential building at 41-29 24th Street, in Long Island City’s Queens Plaza neighborhood. The building is dubbed Package Square West, and it appears to have been scaled down from its initial 150-foot-wide, 94,845 square-foot dimensions. The latest filings – which are also plagued with a slew of violations – call for 79 units (down from 126) spread across 67,059 square feet. That means units would average 849 square feet apiece. Foundation work began in late 2014, and today the project stands two stories above street level, The Court Square Blog reports. According to zoning diagrams, a 51-foot-wide piece of the site will be backfilled and made into a side yard. Fresh Meadows-based Fakler, Eliason & Porcelli is the architect of record.
In early 2015, YIMBY reported on applications for a 12-story, 87-unit residential building at 41-22 24th Street, in Long Island City’s Queens Plaza neighborhood, and we later brought you renderings of the project. Construction is well underway, The Court Square Blog reports, and the structure is currently seven stories above street level. When completed, the residential units will spread across 66,256 square feet of space, which means units will average a rental-sized 761 square feet apiece. MY Architect is designing the project and Lions Group is developing it. Completion is expected roughly a year from now.

That means average configurations of 714 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. Oleg Ruditser’s Brooklyn-based M.E.P. Designs Inc. is the applicant of record.
