Queens' Tallest Residential Building to Rise In Court Square




Quote:
The Citigroup tower at One Court Square, is getting a friend. The Commercial Observer reports that Rockrose Development Corp. is currently leveling seven low-rise warehouses to make way for a 50-story, 500-foot-tall apartment tower. The structure will not only be the tallest residential building in Queens, but with 975 units, it will also be the largest. Located at 43-25 Hunter Street, the new tower will rise beside the Citigroup building. Justin Elghanayan, who runs Rockrose with his father, described it as Citigroup's girlfriend.

"I always looked at the Citigroup tower and it looked so lonely. I said, 'Citigroup needs a girlfriend.' So in my mind, this building is its girlfriend. You know when you have a couple and one person kind of softens the other person? I'm hoping that this building will have the same effect architecturally on the Citigroup tower because right now it's so monolithic and lonely on the skyline."

The design team consists of SLCE Architects, SPaN Architecture, and Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects. The 907,000-square-foot building will follow the 80/20 affordable housing split, and it will have 30,000-square-feet of amenities, including multiple roof decks, a full basketball court, a library, and yoga rooms. It will cost about $400 million, and construction should begin late this year. If all goes as planned, the new building will open in 2016.

I remember the citi tower from Grand Theft Auto IV This new one looks pretty good imo, nothing special, but at least it looks modern and it probably has some greentech features

Great news! I'd love for Court Square to become a little skyline cluster.

That's great, only, there are already some charming town homes on those lots. So they'll demolish the real thing for some faux ones? At least the corner town home has those large windows, nice modern touch.

There's a dumpy 2 story structure (on right below) where the new townhouses are going to be built. The townhouses further down the street will remain.

New uber-luxury highrise planned for the High Line neighborhood. The condo is located 522 West 29th Street and called the Soori High Line. Quotes from the article (and image source):

Quote:
The project is named Soori High Line, and it’s being developed by New York-based Blackhouse and Singapore-based Oriel... The building, located between Tenth and Eleventh avenues, will be designed by SCDA Architects and have an “Asian-inspired trendsetting modern aesthetic...” Apartments will have 18-foot ceilings, private heated swimming pools, fireplaces in the living rooms, bespoke fittings everywhere and “bathrooms with spectacular views.” Amenities will include a concierge, library, wine cellar and gym.




















Closer look at the ridiculous pool:

Reports of a new sliver building at 110 Madison Avenue from the New York Yimby website. The building is going to 17-stories tall and built on a 17 foot wide property. To my knowledge, no other U.S. city has this kind of sliver construction.

From the NYC Development section. The Columbia Manhattanville project is one of the most overlooked mega developments going on in the city.

500 W 30 Street looks pretty good for a brick building.
