NEW YORK | Tishman LIC Development | 180m | 590ft | 53 fl | 154m | 504ft | 44 fl | 114m | 374ft | 33 fl | U/C

Permits Filed: 1,789-Unit, Three-Tower Tishman Speyer Project in Long Island City



Quote:
In June, Crain’s reported that Tishman Speyer and Toronto-based H&R Real Estate Investment Trust were teaming up to build three apartment towers in Long Island City, with a grand total of 1,600 rental units.

Now, permits have been filed for the mega-development, and it’s gotten a bit bigger: 1,789 apartments will now be included across the complex, which takes up two blocks bounded by Jackson Avenue, Orchard Street, Sunnyside Yards, and Queens Boulevard.

The tallest of the towers will be 28-34 Jackson Avenue, which will rise 53 stories and 590 feet, and hold 658 apartments over 495,000 square feet of residential space, plus a nearly 6,000-square foot retail space.

After that comes 28-10 Jackson Avenue, on the same block. That tower will have a whopping 683 rental units spread over 518,000 square feet of residential space, plus more than 3,000 square feet of retail space, and will reach 44 stories and 504 feet.

Finally, the shortest of the trio is 30-02 Queens Boulevard, at just 33 stories and 374 feet. It will fit 448 apartments in 365,000 square feet of residential space, plus nearly 6,500 square feet of retail at its base.

Long Island City Megaproject Will Be Built on a Graveyard
Tuesday, November 4, 2014, by Jeremiah Budin

H&R Real Estate Investment Trust and Tishman Speyer recently teamed up to build 1,600 new rental units and 30,000 square feet of retail in Long Island City, and in addition to the regular amenities that the megaproject will contain there will be one unusual one: the ghosts of the Van Alst family, a prominent Queens clan that settled in what used by called Dutch Hills 350 years ago. The Van Alst family cemetery was rediscovered in 2000, when the city decided to rezone the area and hired an archaeological consulting firm to research the environmental impact. The firm discovered that in 1925, workers for the West Disinfecting Company had unearthed some bones and remnants of caskets at Jackson Avenue and Orchard Street and notified Harry Van Alst, a Queens lawyer.
[...]
Harry was, until recently, the last known (by the city, at least) descendant of Joris Stevenson Van Alst, who settled in what is now Long Island City in the mid-17th century.
[...]
It is not known how many other Van Alsts are buried in the family graveyard, but after Tishman Speyer bought the site in June they were required by the Landmarks Preservation Commission to make a good-faith effort to find any descendants, which they did, not particularly zealously, by taking out some newspaper notices. Luckily, one of those notices was spotted by a Times reporter who took up the torch and located Rachel Van Alst (a Van Alst by marriage) and her son John. Her late husband, also named John, was a descendant of the original Joris. Tishman Speyer is now aware of their existences and has promised to "work closely with them as the process moves forward."

Let's just hope the Van Alst weren't in league with Van DerDecken otherwise there might be some Flying Dutchman spottings on the East River...

Tishman Speyer, H&R receive $640M loan for LIC project

Developers plans 1,789-unit luxury complex in Queens

December 10, 2015 03:45PM

Tishman Speyer and its joint-venture partner H&R Real Estate Investment Trust picked up a $640 million construction loan for three luxury rental towers in Long Island City. Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Wells Fargo are each offering half of the syndicated loan. The construction loan will fund the development of a 1,789-unit luxury rental complex built across three towers in the rapidly changing Long Island City neighborhood, according to the New York Observer. The three towers would rise at 28-34 Jackson Avenue, 28-10 Jackson Avenue and 30-02 Queens Boulevard. The 53-story, 501,000-square-foot building at 28-34 Jackson would hold 658 apartments and a ground-floor retail space. The other properties will be a 44-story, 521,000-square-foot tower with 683 rentals on Jackson Avenue and a 33-story, 365,000-square-foot tower with 448 rentals. Tishman Speyer filed plans last November, with architecture firm Goldstein Hill & West leading the design. The project is estimated to be completed in 2018 at a cost of $875 million.

Speyer’s Long Island City project rising quickly
http://liccourtsquare.com/2016/05/12...ising-quickly/





Quote:
We last stopped by Tishman Speyer’s Long Island City project at 28-34 Jackson Avenue, 28-10 Jackson Avenue and 30-02 Queens Boulevard back in March, when the southern side of the project had just started rising over the construction fence.1 As seen in the photos below, the southern side has really started to rise, with the project reaching the 10th floor. The northern side has also started to come up, with construction on the second level. By 2018, there will be three large residential builds with ground floor retail.

It'll be right next to this. LIC still on fire.

Tishman Speyer secures partner and loan for 1.1 million-square-foot Long Island City office project
http://www.crainsnewyork.com/article...om-bank-of-the



Quote:
A pair of new office towers will rise in Long Island City.

Tishman Speyer announced on Monday that it has secured an investment partner, the Qatar-based investment firm Qatari Diar, a construction loan from Bank of the Ozarks and anchor tenants, including WeWork, for the roughly $700 million project. The developer plans to break ground on the development early next year. It wasn't immediately clear how large Qatari Diar's ownership in the property would be nor the size of the construction loan being provided by Bank of the Ozarks.
...
The buildings at 28-10 Queens Plaza South, designed by architect Raul De Armas of MdeAS Architect, are expected to be finished in 2019. The properties will be connected by 40,000 square feet of retail at the base, which will feature a food hall, space for a major restaurant and shops, and a parking garage.

A bit concerned for LIC. Good for it having so many projects, but really low quality buildings. Still, overall better than what they're building in the other... borough.

I like the thin proportions but the glass/PTAC combo continues to haunt me. At least they're not all like that.
