YIMBY recently went on a hard hat tour of Skyline Tower, aka 23-15 44th Drive. The residential skyscraper will eventually rise 778 feet over Long Island City and become the tallest building in Queens, as well as the tallest building in New York City outside of Manhattan. Work has progressed to the 26th floor of the future 67-story tower, and construction crews have been pouring the reinforced slabs at a rapid rate of two floors per week.

A new pair of residential towers at 22-44 Jackson Avenue is rising from the former home of the colorfully eye-catching street art space, 5Pointz warehouse. The buildings are topped out over Long Island City, Queens and are making their mark on the neighborhood’s growing skyline. The elevated 7 train curves around the construction site toward the Court Square station, just across the street from the massive 1,115-unit development. The complex is being designed by HTO Architects while G&M Realty is the developer. Mojo Stumer Associates is in charge of the interior design, which will feature a 5Pointz homage, a graffiti-style logo, and similar artwork around the interiors.
