Watermark Court Square, the 27-story luxury rental building at 27-19 44th Drive in Long Island City, has risen past its tenth floor, about a third of the way to its final 282-foot height. The LEED-certified building is developed by Twining Properties, with The Ashforth Company as an investment partner. TG Nickel & Associates is the general contractor for the project, which Handel Architects designed as a slender stack of floor-to-ceiling windows set within a grid of grey and dark brown brick. Completion is expected in 2017.
YIMBY last brought you a construction update in December, when foundation work was underway, on the 62-story, 426-unit mixed-use tower planned at 242 West 53rd Street (a.k.a. 239 West 52nd Street), in Midtown between Eighth Avenue and Broadway. Since then, foundation work has largely wrapped up, as seen in photos by Vertical Gotham via the YIMBY Forums, which means construction can now proceed skyward. Residential units in the 542,276-square-foot, 675-foot-tall tower should average 1,024 square feet apiece. There will also be 16,514 square feet of ground floor retail space. Amenities will include a 90-car parking garage, storage space for 247 bikes, a fitness center, a swimming pool, a basketball court, a golf simulator, and a private entertainment area. There will also be outdoor terraces on the second, third, and 61st floors. Algin Management is the developer, while CetraRuddy is behind the design of the exteriors and interiors.
