Rental Building News and Offers

Tower 28, 42-12 28th Street Tower 28, 42-12 28th Street
Long Island City's Tower 28 is the tallest residential building in the city outside of Manhattan. Though the superlative will be short-lived, thanks to a crop of towers planned in the neighborhood and in Downtown Brooklyn, its captivating views will likely last well into the near future.
Mid- to upper-floor apartments of the 647-foot-tall tower overlook the entire length of Manhattan's east side skyline, the East River (ideal for Macy's Fourth of July fireworks), and an array of tight-knit neighborhoods in western Brooklyn and Queens. Recently, we took a trip up to the building's 46th-floor terrace to ogle at the views.

The 58-story building was developed by Heatherwood Communities who also erected 27 on 27 next door in 2013. Tower 28's architects are Hill West who hashed out a slick glass design to appropriately mark the apex of LIC's burgeoning Queens Plaza skyline.
The final touches are being put into place and the building is now ready for immediate move-ins. Availabilities show one-bedrooms are priced from $2,975/month, two-bedroom from $4,473/month, and three-bedrooms from $5,867/month. For a limited time, the team is offering one-month free rent on 12-month leases and two months free on 24-month leases. MNS is handling leasing.
