The nine-story project at 42-50 27th Street is well on its way to joining Court Square’s impressive roster of new residential properties, which are transforming Long Island City beyond recognition. At the moment, the concrete frame is complete, metal stud framing is installed along the lot walls, and scaffolds wrap the structure in preparation for exterior work. Ampiera Group is developing the 32-unit project, and My Architect PC is designing it.

The nine-story, 32-unit residential project under development at 42-50 27th Street, in Long Island City’s Queens Plaza/Court Square section, has topped out. The structure can be seen in a photograph by The Court Square Blog. The new building measures 35,294 square feet and rises 89 feet above the street level. Its residential units should average 777 square feet apiece, which means the apartment will likely be rentals, although smaller condominiums are slowly becoming more attractive and are a possibility here. The Ampiera Group is the developer and Flushing-based MY Architect is behind the architecture. Completion is expected next year.
Ampiera Group’s eight-story, 36-unit mixed-use project under construction at 24-12 42nd Road is now six stories above street level, as seen in photos taken last Friday by JC_Heights and posted to the YIMBY Forums. The structure will eventually encompass 49,050 square feet. It will include 4,328 square feet of ground-floor retail space and will host condominium units averaging 817 square feet apiece. Amenities will include private residential storage units, bicycle storage space, outdoor space on the second floor, and a rooftop terrace. John K. Yung’s Flushing-based MY Architect is behind the design. In April, the structure was having its ground floor poured and had risen five stories in height. The structure can be expected to top out later this summer, with occupancy probably coming for sometime in late 2016 or early 2017.
In January, YIMBY revealed renderings of the nine-story, 32-unit residential building planned at 42-50 27th Street, in the heart of Long Island City. At the time, we knew the site was cleared of its low-rise predecessors. Foundation work is now well underway, according to the Court Square Blog. The structure will encompass 35,294 square feet, and its residential units should average 777 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Amenities include private residential storage, a seven-car garage on the ground floor, storage space for 18 bikes, and a outdoor recreational area on the second floor. New York-based Ampiera Group is the developer, while Flushing-based MY Architect is behind the design. Completion is expected in late 2017.
Back in May of 2015, YIMBY revealed renderings of the planned eight-story, 36-unit mixed-use building at 24-12 42nd Road, located in the Queens Plaza section of Long Island City. Excavation work began at the site last summer, and now construction work is underway on the ground floor, The Court Square Blog reports. The structure will encompass 49,050 square feet, of which 4,328 square feet will be designated for ground-floor retail space. The residential units above will be condominiums and should average 817 square feet apiece. Amenities include private storage space, bike storage, an outdoor recreational area on the second floor, and a rooftop terrace. Ampiera Group is the developer, while Jon K. Yung’s Flushing-based MY Architect is behind the design. Completion can probably be expected in 2017.
