another example of LIC being a hotspot of development since before Amazon came into the picture.

Another Winner of Amazon HQ2 in Queens? Goldman Sachs

On the very same day the online retailer concluded its long, highly publicized search for a second headquarters, placing part of it in Long Island City, the bank quietly finalized a deal to provide $83 million for a massive new apartment complex less than a mile away, in Hunter’s Point South.

[...]

The project, which is being built with the Gotham Organization, has more than 1,000 units. About 80 percent of them are earmarked as affordable for people earning between 30 percent and 145 percent of the area’s median income. Gotham had been working on the project for months before news broke Nov. 4 that Amazon was in advanced talks to move in nearby.

“When this massive development is done, it’ll be one of the largest affordable housing communities in New York City’s history,” Anadu said.

Finally, some addresses. Also, official heights have been revealed.

Two Major New Residential Skyscrapers Filed at 57-28 2nd Street & 1-15 57th Avenue, in Long Island City’s Hunters Point South

57-28 2nd Street will yield about 335,000 square feet of space with 452 units spread over 33 stories, rising 360 feet tall. About 6,000 square feet will go towards communal facilities. The mixed-use building will be made out of a reinforced concrete structure and rise up from the 28,700-square foot lot.

1-15 57th Avenue will come with nearly 700,000 square feet of newly built space, climbing 57 stories, and reaching 612 feet into the sky. Within, there will be 692 dwellings. The mixed-use skyscraper will have about 643,400 square feet dedicated towards residential units, nearly 9,000 square feet of commercial space, and around 19,400 square feet for communal facilities. This would be the tallest skyscraper on the Queens waterfront.
