A large, corner site in Rego Park, Queens is set to welcome a 23-story residential tower, making it one of the tallest structures in the neighborhood. YIMBY first reported on the development, which will be located at 98-04 Queens Boulevard, and the construction site seems to span half a block on Queens Boulevard between 65th Road and 66th Avenue.
Plans filed with the city’s Department of Building list SLCE Architects as the architect of record. The 23-story tower will have a total of 116 apartments, which will average nearly 1,200 square feet.
Riding the subway there should be even more fun!

Rego Park tower to be pretty tall

That community needs 10 times that amount of apartments to even start to meet the demand.
And, of course, commiserate infrastructure improvements, which we know will never come under a mayor who hates Queens.
What buildings are short in Rego Park?
Demsity to the max! Move east or to Nassau unless you expect this kind of shit to suddenly stop being built. In your dreams.
there used to be a strip of stores here, they bought all this land? crazy
Even that one big apartment building is going to put a further strain on the woefully inadequate infrastructure. Do we need another 200 cars on the road in the neighborhood? Where will these cars park? Do we need to elbow past 200 more people on the sidewalk that you now can't even traverse without having to dodge people? Is there enough electricity to accommodate that many more people?

LIC gets all the amenities for all of the overdevelopment that's going on there. New waterfront parks. CitiBikes. Libraries. Schools. Playgrounds. Streets. Lighting. Jogging paths. Etc. But alas, city leaders still haven't a clue how to address its growing mass transit shortcomings. The developments in Rego Park will get no tax funded amenities.
