The luxury apartment complex, dubbed The Power- house, is one of the latest residential develop- ments sprouting up amid a building boom in the area known as Queens West.
From chimneys to condos
Two years ago, the 275-foot chimneys of the former power plant - which was last owned by the Schwartz Chemical Company - were demolished, despite vocal opposition from preservationists.
Now, circular glass-enclosed living rooms are being built on the footprint of the demolished chimneys.
The Hunters Point plant was a symbolic icon of the industrial era on the East River. Project costs have been estimated at $100 million to convert the former power plant into luxury condos.
This is one very expensive and ugly pile of Queens Crap!
