Construction is now nine stories above street level on the 11-story, 71-unit residential building under development at 41-15 23rd Street, in the Court Square section of Long Island City. A rendering has also been spotted on-site, courtesy of an update by The Court Square Blog. The latest building permits have the new structure measuring 65,806 square feet and rising 122 feet to the top of its bulkhead element. The apartments should average 742 square feet apiece, although it’s unclear whether rentals or condos are in the works. Brooklyn-based property owner Isaac Schwartz is the developer and Karl Fischer’s SoHo-based firm is behind the architecture. Completion is expected in the summer of 2017.
East Harlem may be experiencing a renaissance, but the stretch of Park Avenue covered by the elevated Metro-North Railroad tracks remains inhospitable and littered with vacant lots. Now, development may be coming to a barren stretch at 1516 Park Avenue, between 110th and 111th streets.
After two years, property owner Isaac Schwartz has filed more applications for an 11-story, 71-unit residential building at 41-11 – 41-15 23rd Street in Long Island City . The structure will have 59,200 square feet of residential space, and Karl Fischer is designing. The building applications have just been approved, and the single-story warehouse and another two-story structure were demolished earlier this year.
