The 35-story landmarked McGraw-Hill Building in Hell’s Kitchen will soon be home to 224 luxury rentals. As first reported by the New York Post, the project includes the redesign of the building’s office space, the construction of a second lobby and entrance, and the restoration of the McGraw-Hill name above the residential entrance. Floors 12 through 34 of the Art Deco skyscraper will be converted to residential use, which will cost an estimated $100 million. Work will begin this summer.

Of the 30+ under-construction and proposed projects in Long Island City, many of the tallest and bulkiest are located near Queens Plaza, including this trio of slab-glass rental towers from Tishman Speyer and H&R Real Estate Investment Trust that will bring nearly 1,800 new apartments to the area. The residential buildings–located at 28-34 Jackson Avenue, 28-10 Jackson Avenue and 30-02 Queens Boulevard–are directly adjacent to Tishman’s two-towered commercial venture that will be home to WeWork, Macy’s, and a food hall. CityRealty recently stopped by the construction to see how things are shaping up at the rentals, which from the looks of it are well on their way to welcoming in LIC’s newest batch of residents.

There are currently nearly 30 under-construction and proposed projects in Long Island City, which, as 6sqft recently described “is sprouting a small city worth of skyscrapers, ushering in thousands of new residents, hundreds of hotel rooms, and a few hundred thousand square feet of office space.” Two big-time projects come from Tishman Speyer Properties, who are erecting a trio of slab residential towers that will together usher in 1,900 new apartments. In a Wall Street Journal piece today, we get a first look at this glassy consortium, along with new details about the developer’s adjacent two-towered commercial project that will be home to WeWork, Macy’s, and yet another food hall.
