PMG files plans for 70-story Long Island City tower

Mixed-use building will hold more than 900 units


March 11, 2015 11:30AM
By Rich Bockmann



Quote:
Kevin Maloney’s Property Markets Group is planning to build a 70-story mixed-use tower at the edge of Queensboro Plaza in Long Island City, according to an application filed with the city Department of Buildings today.

The 772-foot-tall building at 29-37 41st Avenue will span nearly 830,000 square feet and hold 930 apartments. There will also be nearly 15,000 square feet of commercial space.

The application shows six different retail units on the ground floor, as well as amenities including a pool and health club. The architect of record is SLCE Architects. PMG could not be immediately reached for comment.

The company purchased the development site for $46.3 million last year from Queens-based developer Steven Cheung, who had paid just $8 million three years earlier. Maloney’s company also recently purchased the Long Island City clock tower building across the street, a point of contention with preservationists in the area who want to see the building landmarked.

The development site is just steps away from the Queensboro Plaza subway station, an area of Long Island City that is bustling with thousands of residential units in the pipeline.
LIC is on fire!!

Well the bad news about 75 Nassau's height cut didn't last long ...

Maybe you are thinking about 42-12 28th street? That one should be 647ft.

Here is the render of it and some other towers:

235 meter seems so low for a 70 floor building.

70 ft, 772 floors is fine... it's a luxury rental, not a snooty condo so the ceiling heights are only about ten feet on most floors. They only go wither higher floor plates in office buildings or high end condos, anyway.

Good news gentlemen!! Just when 420 Albee Square got a massive height cut ... we get this:

New Queens Plaza Skyscraper Gets Help From Historic Clock Tower Next Door

Quote:
[...]Now it will be truly overshadowed. A 915-foot skyscraper — the city’s tallest outside Manhattan — is about to sprout on its doorstep. Yet the connection is no coincidence: The clock tower is helping make this 77-story glassy giant possible.

Damn ...

The developers had initially wanted to buy 750,000 square feet, so they could build a tower higher than 90 stories.
Pity it didn't work out ... I guess at 90 stories we could have gotten a nice supertall.

NYC is on fire.

First Look at New York's Tallest Tower Outside of Manhattan



Quote:
Before summer, construction will likely begin on not only the tallest tower in Queens, but in all of New York City outside of Manhattan. The 915-foot-tall, 930-unit behemoth will rise beside—and partially consume—the iconic clock tower, dwarfing the 14-story landmark hopeful. A preliminary rendering by SLCE Architects revealed in the New York Times shows that the new skyscraper and the 1927 former bank will share a base, and the tower, which looks similar to SLCE's 388 Bridge Street, will rise behind the Art Deco structure. It may look like the 77-story skyscraper will completely and totally overshadow the clock tower, but according to the developers, Property Markets Group and the Hakim Organization, the development is giving "the building the prominence it deserves."

The tower will hold 930 market rate apartments, and the clock tower will be kept as office space for tech companies. The developers agreed to build a public 1.25-acre park, and preservationists will be pleased to learn that they support the landmarking of the clock tower—though they may not be pleased by the design plans. However, it's worth pointing out that combining historic buildings with glassy towers is not foreign territory for Property Markets Group; they are doing something similar with Steinway Hall and SHoP's skinny tower at 111 West 57th Street.

The new tower is made possible thanks to air rights from the clock tower, as well as 478,000 square feet of development rights purchased for $56 million from the MTA. The money will go toward transit improvements, but the deal was not necessarily an easy one for the authority to make. Initially, the developers wanted to buy 750,000 square feet in order to build a 90-story (or more) tower, but the question of affordable housing and transit access brought the building size down.

Beating the clock

As such, the developers are not required to include any affordable housing at all, yet they will still qualify for the 421-a tax break if they break ground before the program expires in June since Long Island City is one of the areas where this is inexplicably how the program works. Affordable housing advocates are pushing to change the 421-a rules, so after June, developers will likely be required to include affordable units.

I wonder which borough will end up with the tallest building outside of Manhattan, Brooklyn or Queens?
So far Queens is winning the race with this one, the other 700 fter in LIC and the Citibank Tower, the current tallest. But Brooklyn will probably claim the title with the JDS tower and maybe even Extell's tower. But again at the pace Queens, especially LIC is growing, seems like there's a new tower proposed everyday, I wouldn't be surprised if it claimed the title back.
We pay a lot of attention to what's happening in Manhattan but the battle of the outter Boroughs is one that is really getting exciting.

Since LIC has a smaller skyline than DoBro for now, it will hit everyone by surprise in a couple of years, even us skyscraper fans. As you said, we mostly focus on Manhattan but there's some real action here.

REVEALED: New Renderings of PMG’s Queens Plaza Park, the Future Tallest Tower Outside Manhattan

Here’s a closer look at Property Markets Group and the Hakim Organization’s upcoming Long Island City skyscraper dubbed Queens Plaza Park. Slated to soar 70 stories-plus into Queens Plaza’s burgeoning skyline, the 915-foot tall building will contain a whopping 800 units, and will be, by far, the largest and tallest residential building outside of Manhattan.

Not bad. Pretty good for Queens in fact. Kind of hard believe 900+ ft towers are going up outside Manhattan now.

I live 2 blocks from the Court Sq stop. I think this looks pretty nice. The only thing I've noticed with all the new residential towers going up, there isn't necessarily much accommodation for street-level interaction via retail. I hope there's some more of that in the towers going up because LIC feels quite barren in some parts.

This looks straight out of the 80s. Very Corporate looking - yet it is actually residential. One Court Square will compliment it nicely.
