Renderings are out for a 74-story tower at 42-50 24th Street, in downtown Long Island City, Queens. If built, the structure would be a major addition to the borough’s vertical profile, with a speculative minimum height of 750 feet, based on double-height retail at the base. If it ends up being any higher, the structure would become the tallest structure in Queens. Its current competitor is 23-15 44th Drive, a condominium tower expected to rise 752 feet, and is located three blocks to the south. The tallest proposed building for the borough was formerly 29-37 41st Avenue, though developer Durst downsized the project to just 710 feet.

Matatov purchased the site from the previous developers, Bahar Corporation, for $12 million in mid-January 2018. Previous plans had involved building a seven-story mixed-use building.
