A lot has progressed at the site of 23-20 Jackson Avenue since YIMBY’s last update back in early August.

Designed by KSQ Architects and developed by The Vorea Group, the property is located at the corner of Jackson Avenue and Pearson Street in Long Island City, Queens. The structure will yield 85,851 square feet with retail, offices, and a 72-room hotel operated by San Francisco-based hotelier Sonder Corp.
