The Edison, a 115-unit residential tower at 27-21 44th Drive, is rising on one of the most active construction blocks in the city. The future 26-story, 277-foot-tall tower has recently passed its 20th floor. The project is being developed by Silvercup Properties, the development branch of movie and TV producer Silvercup Studios, which has been an icon of Long Island City decades before the first glass skyscrapers graced the local skyline. GF55 Partners is the architect of record. S2 Construction, LLC serves as the general contractor.
