Description of Tower 28 at 42-12 28th Street

Tower 28, the tallest rental building in Queens and one of New York’s highest skyscrapers outside of Manhattan, rises 637 feet, counts 58 stories, and offers sweeping 360-degree panoramas from floor-to-ceiling windows and glass-railed balconies. Residents have access to amenities such as an indoor pool with a sauna, a sunlit fitness center, a children’s playroom, several roof decks, and a bar-equipped sky lounge. The building stands steps away from the Queens Plaza and Queensboro Plaza subway stations, which offer a five-minute ride to Manhattan. 


The nearby Queensboro Bridge opens in splendid view from the tower’s upper floors and allows for convenient access to Midtown by car, bike, or even on foot. Tower 28 stands in Long Island City’s bustling Court Square neighborhood, where a construction boom continues to bring new shops, restaurants and cultural venues on a constant basis. The building sits within walking distance of the parks along the East River waterfront, and offers convenient bike and subway access to vibrant nearby neighborhoods such as Sunnyside, Astoria, and Greenpoint in Brooklyn.
