New Developer Acquires Site of Planned 70-Story, 930-Unit Mixed-Use Tower at 29-37 41st Avenue, Long Island City

The Durst Organization has acquired, for $173.5 million, the high-profile mixed-use development site at 29-37 41st Avenue, in Long Island City’s Court Square section. The new owner plans to build a tower with 1,000 rental apartments, rising as tall as 914 feet above street level, the New York Times reported. It’s expected that 25 percent, or 250 units, will rent at below-market rates through the housing lottery, Real Estate Weekly reported. The project would also include the creation of a half-acre public park. The sale included the vacant 14-story, 49,300-square-foot commercial building at 27-29 Queens Plaza North, an individual landmark, which was expected to receive a renovation by the same previous developers.

Completion is expected late next year.
