Another highrise development built over an old factory...

Luxury planned for LIC site

Rockrose Development Corp. has purchased the former Eagle Electric factory and office building in Long Island City, Queens, and has plans to renovate the existing structure and erect a 700-unit high-rise luxury residential rental tower above it.

The six-story property, located at 43-22 through 43-46 Queens Street, occupies a half-block bounded by Queens and Dutch Kills Streets. In the summer of 2001, New York City rezoned the property to permit residential, commercial or retail use. The property comprises 520,000 buildable square feet.

Justin Elghanayan, Rockrose president, said, “Preserving Long Island City’s rich history — and that of the building itself — is a priority, while we simultaneously add fabulous housing stock to the community.”

Elghanayan said the company will follow preservationist concepts with the development of the Eagle Electric building.

Rockrose plans to demolish a portion of the six-story building, located between Queens and Dutch Kills streets, and the Sunnyside rail yards. On the existing building’s current footprint, Rockrose also plans to construct a modern tower of up to 30 stories using the 200,000 square feet of additional air rights.

For tax reasons, more than 50 percent of the project, which has development rights of 520,000 square feet, needs to be new construction, Justin Elghanayan, Rockrose’s president, said. “There are a lot of interesting architectural possibilities of combining the old with the new, which is very much in the spirit of Long Island City,” Elghanayan said. He added, “It is very rare to have a rental loft building,” because most are converted to condominiums.

Eagle Electric site to sprout 40-story apt. tower
Purchase of site for $37 million is part of a shift away from the increasingly built-up Long Island City, Queens, waterfront toward Queens Plaza.



By Matt Chaban
January 29, 2013

Quote:
The two-story, neon Eagle Electric sign, a long-time landmark in Long Island City, that was replaced by a regular billboard over a decade ago, is slated to get a high-profile successor—a 40-story, 400-plus-unit rental tower.

Early this month a consortium of Property Markets Group, the Hakim Organization and Vector Group paid $37 million for 23-10 Queens Plaza South, a prewar Art Deco-style loft building that was once home to Eagle Electric's production facilities, and a neighboring building at 23-01 42nd Road. The plan is to demolish the latter building and, with the considerable air rights afforded by the adjacent factory, construct a brand new apartment tower.

According to research by Douglas Elliman, there are only six new waterfront developments in the works with a few hundred apartments split between them. Around Queens Plaza, as many as 15 different projects are coming online in the next two to three years with upwards of 1,500 units. Among the new developments are a 700-unit Rockrose project at 43-22 Queens St., on another Eagle Electric property, and almost directly across the subway tracks, Worldwide Group is planning its own 40-story, 416-unit tower.

LIC development site to hit auction block with $39M lien
Site could support 214,792-square-foot residential project






April 22, 2013
By Katherine Clarke

Quote:

A development site in the Court Square area of Long Island City is slated to hit the foreclosure auction block May 17 with an outstanding lien of $38.54 million.

The residential development site, at 44-30 Purves Street, was formerly controlled by developer and landlord Baruch Singer and investor David Weiss, who financed a residential project at the site in 2006 with a $13 million mortgage-backed loan from G3-Purves Street LLC, an entity which appears to be linked to Goldman Sachs.

With 214,792 buildable square feet, the lot is a perfect spot for a rental development of between 200 and 250 units, said Justin Elghanayan, president of Rockrose Development, which is developing rental towers en masse in the neighborhood but has no affiliation with the Purves Street site. The street “has a nice rhythm to it,” he said, referencing the adjacent SculptureCenter, which has invigorated the neighborhood.

The area is quickly becoming a hotbed for the development of new rental towers. Rockrose currently has $1 billion invested in the Court Square area, where it is building a 700-unit rental tower called the Linc LIC and has plans for another 700-unit rental building at the former Electric Eagle building at 43-22 Queens Street and a 945-unit rental building at 43-25 Hunter Street. Heatherwood Communities is also building a 142-unit rental building at 27th Street and 42nd Road, while the Wolkoff family has plans to build a residential development at 5 Pointz, the Aerosol Art Center in the neighborhood.

Smile NEW YORK | 43-22 Queens Street | 580 FT | 54 FLOORS

Permits Filed: 43-22 Queens Street



Quote:
The first permits are up for another major residential development in Long Island City at 43-22 Queens Street, in Court Square, which is the site of the former Eagle Electric building. Rockrose is developing, and SLCE is the architect of record.

DOB filings indicate the tower will stand 54 stories and 580 feet tall, making it the second-tallest residential bu477 square feet of ground-floor retail; the remainder will be split between 783 apartments.ilding in Queens. The scope will total 623,337 square feet, including 34,477 square feet of ground-floor retail; the remainder will be split between 783 apartments.

Curbed recently covered the history of the existing warehouse in a photo-essay, which also included details regarding the new tower. Per Rockrose head Justin Elghanayan, 80% of the warehouse will be preserved, with the adjacent skyscraper part of a larger 2,500-unit development.

43-22 Queens Street represents another positive step in the evolution of Court Square, which is rapidly transitioning into a high-density node; the number of residential projects continues to boom, and several large high-rises will soon begin construction. Rockrose is also developing 43-25 Hunter Street — revealed by YIMBY last week — which will add another 50-story building to the Long Island City skyline.

Heatherwood’s 42-12 28th Street remains the primary contender for the title of Queens’ tallest residential tower, and that project will rise 58 stories and 646 feet. If 43-22 Queens Street has any sort of architectural flourishes above its top floor, it could potentially vie for the title, though that would seem unlikely given that new high-rises in Court Square typically lack crowns or rooftop embellishments.

With not too much of a stretch, this could hit 600 ft.
