When it’s completed in March, Long Island City‘s Tower 28 (formerly 28 on 28th) will be the tallest residential building in Queens at 647 feet and 57 stories–that is, until it’s taken over by the 66-story Court Square City View Tower nearby (this will also overtake the 673-foot 1 Court Square as the tallest overall building in the borough). Though its superlative will be short-lived, Heatherwood Communities‘ rental at 42-12 28th Street will still offer panoramic views, which new renderings from architects Hill West tell us will be taken in from a top-floor observatory, as well as a host of swanky amenities to “rival any vacation destination.” According to CityRealty, the new exterior and interior views also come with news that leasing will begin in March, ranging from $1,900/month studios to $7,500/month three-bedrooms.
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.
The tallest residential building in the outer boroughs is underway, and no, it’s not going to be in boomtown Brooklyn, but rather along the rapidly evolving corridor of Queens Plaza in Long Island City. 42-12 28th Street will soar 57 stories from an 18,000-square-foot lot and will contain 447 luxury rental units. At its 635-foot projected height, it will be just 20 feet shy of the current outer borough tallest, One Court Square (the “Citi” building).
Recently posted images on Goldstein Hill & West‘s revamped website reveal some new aspects of the project, including its ground-level street frontage and an “extensive” amenity package to include a swimming pool directly linked to an outdoor roof deck.
