Construction at 27-49 Jackson Avenue Halted at Halfway Mark in Long Island City, Queens

A stop work order has been placed on 27-49 Jackson Avenue in Long Island City, Queens, halting construction around the halfway mark of the 146-foot-tall residential building. Upon inspection, it appears that progress on the 4,000-square-foot plot has been stagnant for quite some time. Designed by Raymond Chan Architect and developed by ARCFE, the structure began construction in the summer of 2018 and steadily continued to ascend until last fall.
