NEW YORK | 43-30 24th Street | 703 FT | 66 FLOORS

or superfat.


#6

indeed.


#7

It could be around 700 feet though. The lot is pretty big. It will be bulky given that floor space.

But I’m hoping its just a temporary filling or that they will “consider” adding more units and floors down the line.


#8

this is going to be a skyline filler none the less. At 700 feet this thing would have a nice thick presence based on SQFT.


#9

this is a perfect way to picture this one.

3 Man west is residential and is almost an identical height but this one has 50k more Square feet.

It appeared that scaffolding was being set up on Friday. Maybe to start some demo work?



#11

A 700 footer should make a pretty good impact on 24th street. I mean 45th 22nd Steet is 777 feet, thin and in the center of the island and it is making a major impact. This looks to be fatter and close in height so it should be a skyline adjuster.

edit- just realized it is 24th in Queens… so ya it should make a huge impact.

@YIMHudson how do you make that post like that in a box?


#14

just post the url. YIMBY has it set up so if an article is linked, that format shows up.


#15

So apparently the demo, shed, and construction we are seeing here is actually for another small project just to the north of this larger project.

11/5

New DOB zoning diagrams are out: 704 ft (730 considering bulkhead/mechanical floors). Good filler for LIC.

Filler? At 703ft it’ll be figure very prominently on the LIC skyline… and I hope they keep it all brick as shown in JC_heights post above. Brings in a nice and differentiating texture to the skyline


#18

Actually I should remove my post above. Those progress pics and render on site are for a smaller hotel that they are working on next door to this site with the 700 ft tower.

At 700 ft if it were built today would be the tallest in queens or anywhere in nyc outside manhattan for that matter. Even with the other 2 larger towers proposed this will still be 3rd largest in queens.

Awesome news for this tower though!


#19

Filler was probably not the right term indeed! LIC construction pace has been amazing, yet the best is still to come!


#20

Wow this is great news. I can’t wait for this to rise. LIC is my favorite part of the construction boom. Might consider moving there lol


#21

I think if LIC continues at this pace, 700 ft will be a filler. For now though, this will stand out no doubt. In 2022, it might not. Wasn’t to long ago that 500 ft was tall for Brooklyn, now, its a mid rise. :wink:

I’m glad that we have this flurry lately of 600+ footers being revealed. Always a good sign.

Design is OK, but looks like it will block some of the views for Linc LIC.


#24

This one is now under demo!
