Falcon Pacific Builders has revealed the latest set of renderings for a new, mixed-use development on the rise in Astoria. The corner property is located at 28-16 21st Street, and will eventually contain 50 rental units, including 10 permanently affordable homes.
The Streamline Moderne-inspired tower rising at 24-16 Queens Plaza South is not the tallest building in the burgeoning blocks of Long Island City, but it may be one of the most interesting at the moment. While most others resemble the traditional contemporary glass box, the rolling terraces along the western edge of this warehouse expansion give it a unique identity. Woods Bagot Architects are responsible for the design.The 23-story building will yield over 100,000 square feet, creating a total of 117 residencies. Future tenants will have access to a range of amenities, including an open-air rooftop deck, a pool, an exercise center, and co-working spaces. More amenities will be announced upon completion.
They are the largest addition to the Long Island City residential market, and they’re nearing completion. The two towers located at 22-44 Jackson Avenue have long since topped out, and are now barreling toward opening day when they can finally add 1,115 residencies to the neighborhood. The project is housed on the former site of 5Pointz, a cultural significant structure that exhibited some incredible street art. G&M Realty is responsible for the development.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story residential building at 30-48 Crescent Street in Astoria, Queens. The site is four blocks away from the 30th Avenue subway station, serviced by the N and W trains. D. Casamento & Sons Inc. is listed as behind the applications.
Permits have been filed for a five-story mixed-use building at 132-77 Metropolitan Avenue, in Kew Gardens, Queens. The site is located right across from the Jamaica Van Wyck subway station, serviced by the E trains, and one stop away from the connection to the JFK air train. Metro Garden LLC will be responsible for the development.
