Ekstein Development’s 86-unit residential project in Long Island City is on the move, now that permits have come in.

The nine-story project at 25-19 43rd Avenue in Long Island City will rise 99 feet and measure about 68,145 square feet. The residences will be condominiums. On-site amenities are to include parking for 17 cars, bicycle storage and a resident lounge.

The development is to rise on four combined lots, which Ekstein acquired for $13.34 million in December, according to public records. The new structure will take the place of a commercial building at 25-19 43rd Avenue, a two-family building at 42-68 27th Street, a three-family building at 25-09 43rd Street and a one-family property at 25-07 43rd Avenue.

Demolition has wrapped up at Ekstein Development’s project at 25-19 43rd Avenue. Crews demolished a former union headquarters, and several two-story residences to clear the way for a 68,145 square foot residential build (5.00 FAR). As you can see in the photos below, those buildings are completely gone.

This has nearly topped out, according to the Court Square blog.

This one seems to be going so slow the last few months.

The building will be very boring but that streetscape/ground floor facade/entryway looks great in that render above.
