speaking of the 80s, this tower will have a similar presence to Dallas' tallest tower, Bank of America Plaza.

I have no doubt the actual cladding will be the usual wobbly, warped blue and reflective glass for projects looking to maximize return in less than ideal locations. But at least this tower helps preserve the Art Deco clocktower, and has setbacks and rhythm to the design.

Good find! I hope you're wrong. That's quite terrible.

there's a crane near the site, I've no idea if it is related to this project. Either way, it's a good look at where this will be rising. I happened upon this photo browsing flickr. The photographer is Nolan H. Rhodes.

Looks like this project is cancelled, though someone else may choose to build something here later.

PMG, Hakim Organization look to sell massive clock tower development site in LIC
http://therealdeal.com/2016/07/08/pm...t-site-in-lic/

Quote:
Kevin Maloney’s Property Markets Group and the Hakim Organization are looking to sell their 1 million-square-foot, 800-unit clock tower development site in Long Island City.

The developers have listed the site at 29-37 41st Avenue with commercial brokerage HFF TRData LogoTINY, Queens Beans first reported.

Andrew Scandalios, Christopher Peck, Eric Anton, Rob Hinckley and Jeff Julien are marketing the property. Sources confirmed the listing to The Real Deal but pricing was not available, and a representative for PMG could not be reached for comment.

PMG and Hakim paid at least $133 million to assemble the shovel-ready site in the Queensboro Plaza neighborhood, which has a 15-year 421a tax abatement in place and $35 million in brownfield tax credits, Queens Beans reported.

In November 2014, PMG picked up a large portion of the assemblage at 29-37 41st Avenue for $46.3 million, as TRD first reported.

Maloney’s firm then bought the adjacent clock tower site for $30.9 million. Property records show the developer then paid $49 million to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority for several parcels, plus an additional $6.7 million for air rights.

The developers got as far along as to hire the Marketing Directors as new-development consultants on the project – known as Queens Plaza Park – where about one-third of the apartments would set aside as condos.

PMG and Hakim are also jointly developing a 44-story residential tower nearby at 23-10 Queens Plaza South with Howard Lorber’s New Valley investment firm.

They filed a condo plan with the state Attorney General’s office seeking a $363.2 million sellout, though a representative said the developers are planning to do rentals at the building.

PMG and Hakim also bought a $69 million development site in the area late last year at 42-50 24th Street.

Durst acquired the site, had something similar in scale planned, but has since scaled back somewhat significantly. I suspect the FAA is involved because they cut Cityview Tower to a very similar height.

710' with 63 floors. 763 units (down from 1000)
