Back in February, it was revealed that a 79-story mixed-use tower was planned at 23-15 44th Drive in Long Island City’s Court Square neighborhood. Well, it turns out it might taller than expected. A filing with the Federal Aviation Administration indicates it will be 984-feet-tall, YIMBY reported. That would make the structure, dubbed City View Tower, the first supertall in Queens. A building reaches supertall status when it reaches 300 meters of 984 feet. It would actually exceed that, with bulkhead and mechinal equipment rising to 1,000 feet.
As for the project, it is being developed by United Construction and Development and designed by Goldstein, Hill & West Architects. DOB filings indicate 774 apartments and 19,721 square feet of retail space, though the developer’s website had indicated only 660 residential units. The developer had hoped to break ground in 2017.
Office tower One Court Square, at 658 feet and 50 stories, is currently the tallest completed building in the borough.
