Review of 27-03 42nd Road by Carter Horsley

The attractive glass rental apartment tower at 27-03 42 Road in Long Island City, Queens, was erected in 2012.

The 27-story tower, which is also known as 42-17 27th Street, has 142 apartments and was built by Heatherwood Communities LLC, which is building a 58-story residential tower nearby that will be known as 28 on 28th and will be only 12 feet shorter than the nearby Citibank office tower.

Karl Fischer was the architect.

Bottom Line

A handsome, blue-glass rental apartment tower addition to the Court Square neighborhood with a lot of amenities.


The slick, blue-glass tower has a one-story black base and a corner setback above the 5th floor and one end of the tower has a bay of balconies.


The building has a 24-hour concierge, a library, a gym, a yoga studio, a screening room, a play room, a bicycle room, a sun deck, and a garage. The building has a large lounge with a fireplace, a billiards table and two, tall, perforated white screens. The building permits pets.


Apartments have high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, white-stained maple floors, washers and dryers, GE stainless-steel kitchen appliances, walnut and glass kitchen cabinetry and speckled and white quartz kitchen countertops.

Penthouse F is a duplex one-bedroom unit with a 24-foot-long living/dining room with an 8-foot-long, pass-through kitchen and a 203-square-foot, 9-sided terrace on the upper floor and an 18-foot-long bedroom with a 96-square-foot balcony on the lower floor.
