Renderings have been revealed by Hill West Architects for Court Square City View Tower, expected to rise at 23-15 44th Drive, located on the corner of 23rd Street in the heart of Long Island City. The architect’s website states the mixed-use project will rise 66 stories and contain 802 condominium units.
United Construction and Development Group
Corona-based United Construction & Development Group has entered into contract to purchase the vacant, 3.7-acre mixed-use development site at 131-35 Roosevelt Avenue, a.k.a. 39-08 Janet Place, in downtown Flushing. The sale is expected close for more than $100 million, The Real Deal reported. The site can accommodate up to 870,000 square feet of mixed-use development. In fact, plans for four 16-story towers, connected by a common base, were approved in 2008. That would include 457 residential units, 313,000 square feet of commercial space, and 7,500 square feet of community facility space. It’s unclear whether the next owner will move forward with those plans, but United has reportedly met with the Ismael Leyva Architects, who was responsible for them.
The 79-story tower headed for 23-15 44th Drive in Long Island City will likely become the first supertall building in Queens.
