Description

The Independent, located at 42-14 Crescent Street in Long Island City, was built as a rental in 2017 by Meadow Partners, and upgraded to a luxury co-op by MNS Real Estate in 2019. The 48-unit property stands half a block south of Queens Plaza, where Midtown may be reached in a single-stop ride from the Queensboro Plaza station, or via a short walk or bike ride across the Queensboro Bridge.

The 14-story, 160-foot-tall building, designed by architect John Fotiadis, evokes the neighborhood's heritage of pre-war industrial lofts through a crisp, vertically-styled façade. Red brick piers alternate with broad windows, spaced with spandrel grills that match the dark steel trim at the tower's midsection and corners.
