Let's double down on the Long Island City fun today and check in with new development The Powerhouse. A few weeks back, we took a look at the front of the growing building; above, courtesy of the real estate broker blog LongIslandCityNYC, a view of the back side of the development. The color: "The famed Schwartz Chemical Plant is coming down. Once part of the skyline of L.I.C., it's seeing its last days, as construction workers are taking it down. Is it me, or was this not part of the original planning? My only guess is that it was taken down to gain some more F.A.R., I wonder what will become of the site where whats left of the plant currently sits."
For those eager to live a stone's throw from the old chemical plant, LICNYC reports that the 177 units at The Powerhouse are expected to price and hit the market this summer. Brace for High Voltage Luxury, k?
