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
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!
Filler was probably not the right term indeed! LIC construction pace has been amazing, yet the best is still to come!
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
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.
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.
Great update JC
Great update bro!
This warehouse had some political messages on the roof that were visible from the 7 train.
Im pretty sure that steel is for a small hotel next door and is not part of this project.
the small building on site is topped out. Hopefully we’ll get news of the huge rental tower that will rise here eventually. Depending on when it starts, it could claim the title of tallest building in Queens and LIC
