Permits have been filed by TF Cornerstone for two adjacent towers in Long Island City, Queens. Applications detail a 39-story mixed-use building at 2-10 54th Avenue at the intersection of 54th Avenue and 2nd Street, and a 34-story mixed-use structure at 55-01 2nd Street located between the Newtown Creek and 54th Avenue. Both sites are within walking distance of the Vernon Boulevard-Jackson Avenue subway station, serviced by the 7 train.
Construction is nearing topping out on 52-03 Center Boulevard, a 587-foot-tall mixed-use skyscraper in Hunters Point, Queens, and number 26 on our countdown of the tallest buildings under construction in New York. Designed by ODA Architecture with SLCE Architects as the architect of record, the 56-story tower is the taller of the two structures in TF Cornerstone‘s Hunters Point South development. The building stands just to the north of its 46-story, 475-foot-tall sibling at 52-41 Center Boulevard, and the pair will bring a total of 1,194 residential units to the East River waterfront. Of these, 719 will be designated for affordable housing.
