ALTA LIC, 29-22 Northern Boulevard

No fee rental located in Long Island City, at Queens Boulevard corner of Northern Boulevard

Description of ALTA LIC at 29-22 Northern Boulevard

This 43-story residential rental tower is located in Long Island City and consists of approximately 474,000 gsf. The site is surrounded on all sides by transportation infrastructure, which incldue the access ramps to the Queensboro Bridge, the East Side LIRR access tunnel, the Sunnyside Rail Yard and entrances to the elevated subway stations for the 7, E and M trains as well as the N, Q and R lines.

On axis with the Queensboro Bridge, this site is as significant as it is challenging. The noise attenuation requirements required a triple-glazed curtain wall system for a portion of the façades. Achieving comfortable noise levels inside the apartments was paramount to the success of the project. The layouts are a mix of studio, one, two, and three-bedroom apartments, most with fantastic views of the city. The ground floor houses the residential lobby, retail spaces, and an accessory garage.

Imagined as an urban vertical cruise ship, the building offers outstanding amenities, including a two-story fitness center with lounge, gym, spa, climbing wall, pool, and outdoor 5v5 soccer pitch. A covered outdoor half-court basketball court is located on the 38th floor setback, and a rooftop bar and lounge is on the 43rd floor, with access to outdoor terrace space and unobstructed panoramic views.

The curved shapes along the top of the building and the LED illuminated tracks on the front façade were inspired by the shape of the paths along the elevated tracks adjacent to the site.
