Work is progressing on 42-12 28th Street in Long Island City, and even though this very tall, very glassy tower looks pretty much just like every other new apartment tower, it holds a special distinction: at 635 feet, it will be the tallest apartment building in Queens. Architects Goldstein, Hill & West released some new renderings of the 447-unit rental tower (h/t 6sqft), showing the amenity deck with an outdoor pool and the entrance. It's being developed by Heatherwood Communities, and it should open in June 2017.
Permits filed with the Department of Buildings note that the roof height will be 596 feet, but a bulkhead adds to its superlative height.
