At long last, a rendering for Long Island City's 44-35 and 44-41 Purves Street has been revealed. Originally planned as two separate projects, Purves 1 and Purves 2, it is confirmed that the site will definitely be home to at least a 22-story, 121-unit residential building, with plans in the works for a 28-story, 158-unit building for the neighboring lot. The current development is poised to include two tenant recreation spaces and enclosed parking for 18 cars. No architect has been listed for the 89,938-square-foot building.
Originally acquired by The Criterion Group, the lots were flipped by the conglomerate in mid-July for $32.2 million over to Purvis Holdings LLC. With all the development that's going on in Court Square, the future of this large rental building-to-be seems bright, especially given that its neighbor, The Vista, has just sold out.
