Today YIMBY has another exclusive new look at the imminently-opening 29-22 Northern Boulevard, officially dubbed ALTA LIC, in Long Island City, Queens. The 43-story building stands across the street from Dutch Kills Green Park, a small, pleasant public park that is rising in relevance. The Queens Plaza subway station is just one block away, and the Queensboro Plaza station is four blocks further, giving future tenants access to the E, M, N, R, W, and 7 trains.
29-26 Northern Boulevard
As the Long Island City boom continues into the end of the decade, several projects that were permitted back in 2014 are approaching their opening day. Among those is the 43-story 29-22 Northern Boulevard, located across the street from Dutch Kills Green Park and Queens Boulevard. Today, we have a fresh rendering for what it will imminently look like, as well as word that it has received an official name of ‘ALTA LIC’. The building’s address has also been modified, from the original 29-26 Northern Boulevard.
Construction is now 16 floors above street level on the 43-story, 467-unit mixed-use building under development at 29-26 Northern Boulevard, in the Queens Plaza section of Long Island City. Progress on the structure can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the tower will encompass 500,302 square feet and rise 481 feet to the top of its bulkhead. There will be 11,372 square feet of retail space on the cellar through second floors, followed by 467 apartments across the second through 41st floors. The units should average 791 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. Simon Baron Development is the developer and Stephen B. Jacobs Group is the architect. Completion is expected in 2018.
Back in April of 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings for a 45-story, 415-unit mixed-use building at 29-26 Northern Boulevard (a.k.a. 29-22 & 29-32 Northern Boulevard), in the Queens Plaza section of Long Island City. Excavation began in the summer of 2015 and foundation work is now well underway, The Court Square Blog reports. The project has also seen slight revisions to its design. The latest filings detail a 43-story, 500,302-square-foot mixed-use tower that will stand 481 feet above street level. There will be 11,372 square feet spread across parts of the cellar, ground, and second floors. The project’s 467 residential units will be located on the second through 41st floors, averaging a rental-sized 791 square feet apiece.
