It's more of a jumping off point to the outer boroughs or Manhattan, depending which way you're going. It's an example of the success of transit oriented development. Flushing or Jamaica are probably more appropriate considerations as the downtown/CBD for Queens.

It's probably the one single neighborhood of the city whose transformation has amazed me the most. As you said, it's a whole separate skyline, there are times when I go around some places in Queens where you can only see that cluster without Manhattan in the background, and it's like I'm looking at some medium-sized city's skyline.

**Mods, please change the thread title from Queens Plaza Park to Sven**

My CityRealty article

Sven, LIC's future second-tallest building, approaches 50-story mark
By Vitali Ogorodnikov
12/10/2019

The Skyline Tower has just claimed the crown of the tallest building in Queens (the concrete structure topped out in October, and the parapet above went up over the past week), yet a similarly-sized contender is already catching up nearby. Sven at 27-29 Queens Plaza North has climbed nearly 50 stories high, approaching its projected 737-foot, 64-story pinnacle. Reflective glass, sectioned in two-story bands, now covers the building’s lower half. The rental property, developed by the Durst Organization and designed by Handel Architects, will hold 957 units, nearly 300 of which would be affordable.

Sven, formerly known as Queens Plaza Park, anchors the northern end of the rapidly-growing Court Square skyline in Long Island City, and already dominates the Dutch Kills Green, a small square at the east end of Queens Plaza. Sven rises directly behind the landmarked Bank of Manhattan Company Building, a 14-story, crenellated clocktower that had dominated the local skyline since 1927. Today the high-rise looks rather diminutive, flanked by towers such as ALTA LIC and Aurora (the latter also a product of Handel), and now overshadowed by Sven itself. The rising skyscraper defers to both its older neighbor and the Green with a gracefully curved, concave facade, the building’s signature feature.

The landmark, incorporated into the new development with 50,000 square feet of commercial space, and the Long Island Rail Road lot to the north supplied the development rights to push Sven to an impressive 978,000 square feet, making it not just one of the tallest, but also one of the largest buildings in the neighborhood. When complete, Sven will surpass the iconic, 673-foot-tall One Court Square (former Citibank Building) to become the second-tallest skyscraper in the borough.

As expected at this stage of construction, the official website remains a sparse teaser, but the building’s self-evident perks speak for themselves. Floor-to-ceiling windows will offer 360-degree skyline panoramas that will look out as far as Brooklyn and New Jersey from the upper floors. The Queens Plaza station at the foot of the building and the nearby Queensboro Plaza offer five-minute access to Midtown via the E, M, N, R, W, and 7 trains, while the bridge allows for easy driving, biking, or even walking commute across the river. The shopping and dining districts in Long Island City and nearby Sunnyside and Astoria also lie within walking distance.

Sven’s rental prices remain to be released, yet we can make an estimate based on the building’s neighbors. ALTA LIC currently lists one studio for $3,114/month. Aurora offers a one-bedroom unit for just $3 more, at $3,117/month. Across Dutch Kills Green, Jackson Park lists three one-bedrooms averaging $3,261/month, and a three-bedroom for $5,800. Nearby Tower 28 offers a two-bedroom pad for $3,288.

"When is it going to be finished?"
"That's it!"
"What?"
"Sven!"
"When?"
"No, let's call it Sven!"

I kept getting confused with the other thread about Melbourne's Queens Place Towers

Maybe this tower was entirely built out of particleboard and cam-locks

I really like this building. Clean crisp lines impart a simple elegance.

Concave glass facing the sun???? Didn't they learn their lesson from that building in London?
