NEW YORK | Skyline Tower (23-15 44th Drive) | 778 FT | 66 FLOORS


#41

This is BEAUTIFUL


#42

At the same time, LIC is also getting the 751 ft Queens Plaza Park, so they are getting 2 new tallest!


#43

That’s the one with the restored clock tower right? I can see the scaffolding up there.


#44

Yup, LIC promises to be a construction mecca for years to come!


#45

Hard to get a good angle of this. I think the best angle is on the 7 train before entering Court Sq. It’s very close to the train.

Today.

12/1 Looks like the first setback is taking shape, so the main tower should be popping up soon.

I just saw this. This pic needs the @Thomas_Koloski treatment for this tower and Queens Plaza Park.

More renderings can be seen in the article itself.

I’m excited to see how this new subway entrance turns out too:

About $16 million has been committed for a new entrance to the Court Square subway station, which serves the E, M, G, and 7 lines, at the base of the building.


#54

It would really help the flow of passengers if they were able to open an entrance to the 7 at the northern end that connected to the E/M. This would help with station distribution and an easier transfer. Citi helped to make the connection possible at the southern end. I was hoping they would do the same here.

Today. If I’m not mistaken, the main tower is beginning to rise from the podium.

sales projections for this tower have been revised to a whopping 1.8 billion. Compared to Manhattan, units are relatively inexpensive (one BR starting <$1 million) but there are a lot of units.

Now rising at 23-14 44th Drive in Long Island City, what will be the tallest New York condo outside of Manhattan, the 67-story building has projected a $1.8 billion sell out following Amazon’s HQ2 announcement.
Long Island City brokerage firm Modern Spaces is exclusively handle marketing and sales for the project.
One-bedrooms, which average 702 s/f, will start at $865,000, and two-bedrooms of 932 s/f will start at $1.225 million.
