Smile NEW YORK | 45-03 23rd Street | 524 FT | 45 FLOORS

45-Story, 250-Unit Tower Planned for 23rd Street in Court Square

Quote:
Long Island City could soon be home to yet another large tower, with a 45-story development planned in the heart of Court Square.

The proposed tower would rise at the southeast corner of 23rd Street and 45th Avenue, immediately adjacent to the elevated 7 line tracks and on the same block as the Court Square station entrance. The building would also rival the 50-story One Court Square across the street.

The tower, being developed by Tavros Capital Partners, would span around 308,500 square feet, and includes approximately 250 residential units. About one-fifth of the building would be made up of office space, with some space allotted for retail use.

The development, with a height of 524 feet, also has an L-shaped footprint that covers seven low-rise multi-family buildings currently on site. The addresses of the buildings, which will be torn down to make way for the project, extend from 23-10 to 23-16 45th Ave., and 45-03 to 45-09 23rd St.



Despite the tower’s proposed size, Tavros Capital Partners is actually seeking to make changes to current zoning that ultimately allow for a significantly shorter building. The developer can already build an as-of-right project on site reaching a height of 70 stories, but is opting to build a 45-story development instead that features “a more flexible design and a more efficient floor plate size,” according to city documents.

Coralie Ayers, from the Department of City Planning, said at last week’s Community Board 2 meeting that without the requested changes, the tower would be “excessively large.” She further expanded on the application’s reasoning in a January board meeting.

“It’s quite a constrained lot, and it would have necessitated quite a tall building,” she said, adding that the changes move away from having a “skinny, extremely tall building” on site.

[...]


The developer plans on beginning construction in 2020, and completing the project by 2022.

The taller, as of right version would have been about 714 ft...

Good news for a prime site, though I would have preferred the taller, slimmer version.

That Toyoko site shown in the diagram above will also yield over 1000 rooms if it comes to fruition @ 50 floors.
