NEW YORK | 45-40 Center Blvd LIC | 350ft | 32 fl | Completed

This residential tower, part of EastCoast, the massive 7 tower Long Island City development at Hunters Point South, broke ground last December and is quickly moving towards an early 2012 completion.

The Long Island City waterfront will have 2,100 new apartments by 2013. Make that 3,000 by 2014. Phase I of Hunters Point South, Mayor Bloomberg's dream of turning the barren southern tip of the neighborhood's waterfront (once earmarked for an Olympic village) into a middle-class oasis with 5,000 apartments, a school, a gorgeous park and more, is officially a go. Today Bloomberg and other officials formally unveiled the largest new affordable housing complex to be built in New York City since the 1970s, and after a heated competition, the residential portion of the project's first phase, which includes 900 apartments in two buildings, has been awarded to a development team consisting of the Related Companies, Phipps Houses and Monadnock Construction.

EVEN in a sluggish market, property developers are continuing to bet on Long Island City’s transformation from towering smokestacks to residential towers.

Last August TF Cornerstone, one of the city’s most prolific builders, broke ground on a 41-story tower at 46-15 Center Boulevard that is to have 367 rental apartments when finished in April 2012. In December at 45-40 Center, the developer poured the foundation for a 32-story high-rise that will have 345 rental apartments, and in March it will begin a third tower, at 45-45 Center, with 806 rentals.

By 2013, along with those three towers, TF Cornerstone plans to have finished a fourth, with 586 apartments, at 46-10 Center, directly behind the huge Pepsi sign on the East River waterfront.

While not particularly remarkable, its prominent position along the East River waterfront opposite familiar Manhattan landmarks such as the UN prompts enormous curiosity. 2100 apartments in 3 towers should be finished by 2013 with more to follow. Hunters Point South is to eventually have over 6,000 apartments when completed.

The view from these apartments towards the NY skyline must be incredible.

That waterfront was made for those towers!
July 4th fireworks gives the residents incredible vantage points.
I wonder if the residents will have rooftop access?
