Heatherwood to build 477-unit tower in Queens Plaza

October 15, 2013 05:24PM

A new 58-story residential tower is set to sprout in Long Island City. Developed by Heatherwood Communities and designed by Goldstein, Hill and West, the 477-unit, 596-foot-high property will put down roots at 42nd Road and Queens Plaza South.

Amenities will include a third-floor pool, gym, roof terraces on the 45th and 58th floors, bike storage, and parking, according to the plan exam cited by BuzzBuzzHome. Retail will be located on the ground floor.

Heatherwood has been active in Long Island City’s ever-growing residential building scene for years now, having fully leased its property at 27-03 42nd Road in August. The firm purchased four residential development sites in The Queens Plaza area in 2011, part of a push by Rockrose Development, Meadow Properties and Heatherwood to open between 2,000 and 3,000 new apartment units for the area in three years.
