Renderings are out for a 74-story tower at 42-50 24th Street, in downtown Long Island City, Queens. If built, the structure would be a major addition to the borough’s vertical profile, with a speculative minimum height of 750 feet, based on double-height retail at the base. If it ends up being any higher, the structure would become the tallest structure in Queens. Its current competitor is 23-15 44th Drive, a condominium tower expected to rise 752 feet, and is located three blocks to the south. The tallest proposed building for the borough was formerly 29-37 41st Avenue, though developer Durst downsized the project to just 710 feet.
Standing next to Zaha Hadid’s first residential project in New York City at 520 West 28th Street, the Isay Weinfeld designed complex, dubbed “The Jardim,” has gotten both its brick and glass facade up as seen from the High Line. Developed by Centaur Properties and built by Pizzarotti, the project spans the width of the block from West 27th to West 28th Street, with two towers separated by a private landscaped garden and outdoor courtyard for residents.
