Giant skyscraper planned for Queens Plaza
Long Island City's Court Square microhood is getting yet another new apartment building—and this one is a biggie. Heatherwood Communites filed plans for a 596-foot-tall, 58-story at 42-12 28th Street, just down the block from the developer's new rental building 27 on 27th. The 28th Street project will have 477 apartments, ground floor retail, bike storage, parking, a pool, gym, and two roof terraces.
Can Queens - especially LIC - really absorb all these people? At what point is critical mass achieved?
Also trying to figure out how a building just south of Queens Plaza is considered to be in Court Square.
