Construction is complete on 23-20 Jackson Avenue, a nine-story mixed-use building in Long Island City, Queens. Designed by KSQ Architects and developed by The Vorea Group, the 85,851-square-foot structure yields retail space, offices, and a 72-room hotel operated by San Francisco-based hotelier Sonder Corp. King Contracting Group was in charge of assembling the red brick façade for the property, which is located at the intersection of Jackson Avenue and Pearson Street.
Façade installation is getting close to completion on Parcel F, a 57-story residential skyscraper in the two-tower Gotham Point development in Hunters Point South, Queens.

Together, the buildings will yield 1,132 rental apartments, of which 75 percent will be dedicated to affordable housing with age-restricted homes for seniors, as well as a 1,100-seat Intermediate High School built by the School Construction Authority and a 5-acre waterfront park constructed by New York City’s Economic Development Corporation.
