LIC clock tower gets dwarfed
LIC Court Square
The last time we stopped by 29-37 41st Avenue a/k/a 29-23 Queens Plaza North, we saw that pipe scaffolding was up at the LIC Clock Tower and construction on the new residential building had risen above the construction fence. When we stopped by last week we saw that construction is moving along quickly, and that the LIC Clock Tower is now dwarfed by construction, as seen in the photo below.
Here’s more information about the project from The Real Deal:
Queens Plaza Park, located at 29-37 41st Avenue near the landmarked Long Island City Clock Tower, will be a 978,000-square-foot mixed-use tower. It will have 958 residential units, 300 of which will be affordable. Handel Architects is designing the project — its latest renderings reveal a concave, glassy exterior — and Selldorf Architects is designing its interior, lobby and amenities.
