Rockrose Development Corporation's Eagle Electric factory redevelopment is rapidly rising in Long Island City's Court Square/ Queens Plaza district. The project, located at 43-22 Queens Street, has already risen more than 25-stories above street level, but will ultimately top out at 54-stories. Housing a whopping 783 residential units, Rockrose Development purchased the complex of factory buildings in 2013 for $48 million.

The Eagle Electric Manufacturing company was a maker of electrical devices, switches and circuit units and once owned a half-dozen properties in the area. The company was bought by Cooper Wiring Devices, Inc in 2000 and by 2006 moved all their manufacturing out of Long Island City, to Mexico, China, and the south-east. Another of the company's building at 27-28 Thomson Avenue was preserved and converted to the Arris Lofts in 2008, becoming one of the neighborhood's first condominium developments
Rough rendering of the Eagle;
Rather than demolish the flagship Eagle Electric factory-building, Rockrose decided to rehabilitate most of the structure--keeping roughly 80% of the building intact. Bringing a venerable past to the present and bridging the historical with the modern, the project will incorporate much of the 1918 daylight factory building while inserting a 54-story skyscraper in between.

SLCE are serving as the project architects and by late 2017 the tower will grow to its full 598 feet in height, measured from ground-level to the top of its bulkhead. Recent photos taken by NyConstructionPhoto and us show the building is now more than half-way up. Upon completion, the tower will rank as the second tallest residential building in LIC, behind Tower 28, Heatherwood's 646-foot tall rental finishing up at at 42-12 28th Street. The slab-shaped tower will be enormous and glassy. The west-facing lot-line wall that has no windows and may be a clue that another high-rise may be planned for the adjacent lot in the near future.

The building will have a mix of one, two, and three-or-more bedrooms. Anticipated prices are likely to range from $1,800/month for studios, $2,600/month for 1-bedrooms, and $3,400/month for 2-bedrooms; though actual prices have yet to be officially set. What we do know is that permits called for 587,860 square feet of residential space, with the vast majority of the space being dedicated to the apartments which will average 763 square feet. The 34,477 square feet remainder will consist of commercial space on the ground floor, likely for retail.

Interiors of the to-be-renewed loft-building will boast high-ceilings, large factory-sash windows, and classic mushroom-capped columns. The building will also maintain some architectural balance in an area undergoing incredible redevelopment. The plan also calls for a green roof featuring rooftop gardens installed over the original roof and the installing of new, energy-efficient replacement windows.
Amenities are expected to include a swimming pool, a rooftop deck and lounge, as well as, basement storage, an event room, a children’s playroom, a fitness center, a courtyard, a laundry room, valet services and plenty of bike storage. The building is surrounded by a myriad of transportation options. here is within a short walk from the Queens Plaza and Court Square stations that have the ability to shuttle commuters to Manhattan in less than 10 minutes.
