Of all the city’s growing neighborhoods, the changes taking place in Long Island City appear to be the most dramatic. Rising from its once sleepy manufacturing blocks are dozens of slick residential towers on a pop-up skyline that grows larger by the day.
Within the neighborhood’s Court Square district, the commercial real estate firm of Stawski Partners is readying to build an immense 921-unit rental tower at 43-30 24th Street. The 66-story tower will be in contention for the tallest building in Queens if it finishes prior to the proposed Court Square City View Tower next door. Recently-approved permits indicate the tower will rise 731 feet —nearly 75-feet higher than the boroughs’ current tallest building, One Court Square.

Hill/West are listed as the architects of the project and an early rendering published on their website depicts a simple slab tower perched on a broad base. The rendering co-aligns with recently-approved zoning drawings filed with the Department of Buildings. The drawings also show the building will be set back from the elevated 7 train above 25th Street, and a driveway/porte-cochere will be positioned along 24th Street. Other amenities will include 209 on-site parking spaces, bike storage, street-level retail, communal terraces, a swimming pool, and a fitness center on the third floor.

A recent pass at the site shows that a single-story industrial building at the site has been demolished. Around the site are two new office buildings, Court Square Place and 2 Court Square, and more than a dozen recent/in-construction residential buildings that include Hayden, Linc LIC, the Decker, and the Harrison.
