In December we broke the news that 42-12 28th Street, known as 28 on 28th, in Long Island City would top out at 58 stories and 648 feet. Now, Goldstein, Hill & West’s (GHWA) affiliated interior design firm, Whitehall Interiors NYC, has given us our first look at the amenities of Heatherwood Communities’ upcoming rental tower. The perks include a swimming pool and attended parking garage–and they also give us a glimpse of how the units themselves may be designed.
The construction site already has steel re-bar poking up above street-level, meaning the tower will soon race skyward, eventually taking its place as the tallest residential skyscraper in New York City outside of Manhattan.

As with many of LIC’s new developments, 28 on 28th will contain a resort-worthy package of amenities that is to include bicycle and tenants’ storage in the cellar, attended parking for 50 vehicles, a swimming pool, outdoor deck, tenant’s lounge on the third floor, a fully-equipped fitness center on the fourth floor and a rooftop terrace and sky lounge on the 56th floor. As if that weren’t enough, there will also be a screening room, children’s playroom, and gaming lounge.

Western-facing units will capture one of the most ravishing views of the Manhattan skyline, which will nearly span the entire length of the island, with the landmarks of Midtown at front and center.
You won’t have to be part of the 1 percent to enjoy these views, despite the fact that the building is only a single subway stop from Manhattan’s “billionaire’s row.” A recent rental report by Doulgas Elliman reveals the average median price of rentals in northwestern Queens are 12 percent less than they are in Manhattan. While pricing for units at 28 on 28th are some time away, available apartments at its neighboring sibling 27 on 27th range from $2,250 for a seventh floor studio to $4,199 for a 25th floor two-bedroom. But Elliman also reports that the median rental prices in northwestern Queens have jumped a staggering 30.7 percent over the past year.
