Rendering of Speyer's three-tower residential project Rendering of Speyer's three-tower residential project
Tishman Speyer's three massive residential towers within its Gotham Center master plan are now rising in Long Island City. After securing permits in February 2015, the legendary firm led by Jerry and Rob Speyer hurriedly began construction to beat the mid-June expiration of the 421-a tax abatement program. The superblock site will yield three towers: Tower A -28-10 Jackson Avenue (44 stories), Tower B - 28-34 Jackson Avenue (53 stories) and Tower C - 30-02 Queens Boulevardd (33 stories). As of last week, the southernmost building at 28-10 Jackson was pushing onward past its twenty-fifth floor and beginning to install a deep blue, reflective curtain wall along its lower levels. The central and ultimately tallest tower at 28-34 Jackson Avenue had rose to its fourth floor and the northernmost tower at 30-02 Queens Boulevard was nearing its eleventh. Goldstein, Hill, & West is the architect on record for all three buildings and in total, they will comprise 1,789 apartments and 1.2 million square feet of new development.

Controversy arose in 2015, as affordable housing units are not included within the massive development. Legally, if the project were built in Manhattan or alongside the East River waterfront in Brooklyn and Queens, the firm would have been required to set aside 20% of the units for low- and moderate-income tenants to receive the 421-a tax abatements. However, the company remains firm in its belief that regardless of its lack of subsidized units, the development will add much-needed vibrancy to the Long Island City.
