Construction is now four stories up on the eight-story, 15-unit residential project under development at 42-83 Hunter Street, in the Queens Plaza/Court Square section of Long Island City. Progress can be seen thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the new building will measure 15,948 square feet and stand 81 feet in height to its roof. The residential units will be located on the ground through eighth floors and should average 822 square feet apiece. It’s unclear if the apartments will be rentals or condominiums. The Lions Group is the developer and Jon Yung’s Flushing-based MY Architect is the architect of record. Completion is expected in early 2017.
42-83 Hunter Street
The eight-story residential building at 42-83 Hunter Street, located in the interior of Long Island City’s Court Square district, has risen above the ground level. The steel structure has been assembled for the first of the building’s eventual eight levels. The Lions Group NYC is developing the 15,948-square-foot, 15-unit project, designed by Jon Yung’s My Architect PC. Lions Group II, LLC is listed as the general contractor. The glass façade of the slender mid-rise would open upon a pocket park, which allows for sweeping vistas of the Long Island City skyline and Midtown Manhattan beyond.
