I've posted this in New York's main Projects & Construction thread, but this feels like a more appropriate thread.

Seems there's plenty more in that area that should be demolished.

It will all be torn down or spruced up. The whole neighborhood is being gentrified.

They should have preserved the facade of the red building.

Work Begins on 48-Story Towers at LIC's Former 5Pointz Site



Quote:
Foundation work is underway on the plain-looking towers that will rise at the once-vibrant site of 5Pointz, the iconic graffiti space in Long Island City, Queens, Court Square Blog reports.

The site, which is located at 22-24 Jackson Avenue, has just under 1 million square feet of residential space and 40,000 square feet of commercial space. The Department of Buildings approved the permits for the 48-story twin buildings back in May, and once complete, the development will feature a whopping 1,100 apartments

Resurrection of Queens' 5Pointz Now in Full Swing, See New Renderings of Common Areas
December 20, 2016
Quote:
When Queens-bound riders emerge from the 7 line’s subway tunnel, they are greeted by a rapidly diminishing view of the Manhattan skyline. Residential towers have sprung up like neatly planted hedges along the Long Island City waterfront, and as Manhattan continues to vomit high-value real estate, the towers are pushing further inland. Near the subway tunnel exit, David Wolkoff‘s G&M Holdings is constructing a massive 1.2 million square foot development on a full block site bounded by Jackson Avenue on one end and Sunnyside Railyards on the other. The complex replaces the 5Pointz warehouse whose graffiti-covered-everything was a familiar sight to riders and artists. To the dismay of many, the unofficial landmark was white-washed then demolished in 2013.
