Twelve years after its initial proposal, Star Tower at 27-17 42nd Road in Long Island City is finally approaching completion. In 2007, the 26-story, 184-unit tower was slated to star as the tallest and largest apartment development in the Court Square District. Today, the building gets lost amid the newly emerged constellation of high-rises, yet a series of design transformations have produced a final product far superior to the original. The finely crafted façade, designed by JDS Architects, projects a refined modernism and balances contextual reference to its glass-walled neighbors with subtle stylistic expression.
A new pair of residential towers at 22-44 Jackson Avenue is rising from the former home of the colorfully eye-catching street art space, 5Pointz warehouse. The buildings are topped out over Long Island City, Queens and are making their mark on the neighborhood’s growing skyline. The elevated 7 train curves around the construction site toward the Court Square station, just across the street from the massive 1,115-unit development. The complex is being designed by HTO Architects while G&M Realty is the developer. Mojo Stumer Associates is in charge of the interior design, which will feature a 5Pointz homage, a graffiti-style logo, and similar artwork around the interiors.
