In early 2015, YIMBY reported on applications for a 12-story, 87-unit residential building at 41-22 24th Street, in Long Island City’s Queens Plaza neighborhood, and we later brought you renderings of the project. Construction is well underway, The Court Square Blog reports, and the structure is currently seven stories above street level. When completed, the residential units will spread across 66,256 square feet of space, which means units will average a rental-sized 761 square feet apiece.
