REVEALED: Lions Group Developing Complementary Skyscrapers in Long Island City



http://ny.curbed.com/


FEBRUARY 19, 2015
BY ONDEL HYLTON


Quote:
Just north of Long Island City‘s Court Square and its once lonely Citigroup Building, the Long Island-based Lions Group will erect a complementary pair of residential towers fronting opposite sides of Jackson Avenue. Sensibly dubbed Jackson East (26-32 Jackson Avenue) and Jackson West (27-01 Jackson Avenue), the project is just one of the more than two dozen high-rise developments underway in LIC’s Court Square / Queens Plaza area.

While details remain scarce, renderings recently posted on the Lions Group’s website depict that the taller east tower will rise nearly 40 stories while the shorter west building will be about 30.

Designed by the Queens-based Raymond Chan Architects, the towers’ facades are an eclectic mix of glass and brick, with building corners glazed with floor-to-ceiling windows and balconies siding many mid- and upper-floor units.

The east tower will replace a one-story auto repair shop, while the west tower is to supplant a GasTrac gas station that recently shuttered. Construction permits for the west tower were filed with the Department of Buildings back in December, but called for a smaller 15-story building containing 88 units.

While still unclear if the towers will contain rentals or condos, they will rise from a hotbed of development activity in Long Island City. Across the elevated Dutch Kills Street (a vehicular High Line of sorts that streamlines traffic to and from the Queensboro Bridge) is the site of Rockrose’s conversion of the Eagle Electric Warehouse and its accompanying 54-story tower. TF Cornerstone’s 50-story mega-rental at 43-25 Hunter Street is already underway across 43rd Avenue, and along Purves Street, a string of recent condo and rental mid-rises that include the Vere Condominium, Purves II, and Lions Group’s own Vantage Purves and the Vista, have already created one of the district’s first residential enclaves.

Those renderings are amazing. Also the mass models of future towers. For a minute, you'd think this was DoBro. City just keeps getting better. No stopping the building frenzy!!!

Demolition begins at Gas Trac at 27-01 Jackson Avenue
March 13, 2015
CtSqLIC


Quote:
Things have been moving along at the old site of Gas Trac at 27-01 Jackson Avenue since the gas station closed down in January.1 Last month, construction crews installed a chain link fence on the site. When we walked by the site last week, we noticed construction vehicles inside beginning demolition on the property, as seen below.

Last year, the 9,200-square-foot lot at 27-01 Jackson Avenue sold for $11,600,000.2 In December, New York YIMBY spotted plans filed with the department of buildings calling for a mixed-used build with 15 stories and 88 units totaling 72,328 square feet and 7,090 square feet of commercial space.3

But then in February, renderings were released for 27-01 Jackson Avenue, and the site across the street, 26-32 Jackson Avenue, which differed greatly from the permits filed. Here’s what Queens Brownstoner had to say:4 “The buildings are called Jackson East, at 26-32 Jackson Avenue, and Jackson West, at 27-01 Jackson Avenue. Designed by Raymond Chan Architects, the towers will each rise 30 and 40 stories. […] No details on any construction timeline, or whether the units will go rental or condo.”

Permits approved at 27-01 Jackson Avenue

Quote:
In mid-October, demolition finished on 27-01 Jackson Avenue, former home of a Gas Trac.1 Expect work on the site to begin soon, with the Department of Buildings approving build permits on Oct. 20. Permits call for 7,090 square feet of commercial space and 65,238 square feet of residential space. The building will rise 15 stories and house 88 units.2

It’s worth noting that the approved permits are in contrast to previous renderings uncovered by 6sqft, where the projected build was supposed to be 30 stories.3

Also keep in mind that, as is sometimes the case, what is shown on current building permits doesn't always reflect the ultimate size of what will eventually be built with further revisions in the process. We'll just have to wait for a render to be sure.

Tishman Speyer has permits approved as construction begins at 28-07 Jackson Avenue



Quote:
Tishman Speyer has started construction for two commercial towers located at 28-07 Jackson Avenue. Permits were approved on Oct. 21, calling for 1,450,331 square feet of commercial space with a FAR of 11.98. Here is more from New York YIMBY, who was the first to spot permits back in June.1

It will consist of two towers, named One and Three Gotham Center. There will also be 250 parking spots, spread between the first two floors and a mezzanine level sandwiched in between them. Parking isn’t required in Long Island City, but zoning rules for the area around Queens Plaza cap the maximum amount of non-residential parking at 250 spaces.

I actually am not 100% sure. They are so close to each other address wise given the close proximity with so many other projects in LIC.

Edit:

I think we have two different threads for the same project.

From a couple of posts above:

Unless I'm just confusing myself and misinterpreting it?
