A new development in Long Island City is slated to become the tallest residential tower in Queens, according to plans filed with the Department of Buildings.

The permit for development firm Heatherwood Communities’ apartment building at 42-12 28th Street in Queens Plaza indicate the structure will stand 596 feet tall. Zoning diagrams, however, reveal the added bulkhead will bring its height to just over 646 feet high.

The structure would be taller than any residential building in Queens and also loftier than any apartment building in Brooklyn, and just one foot shorter than One Court Square, according to New York YIMBY. Heatherwood’s plans call for a 58-story mixed-use building that will include 477 housing units, 50 enclosed parking spaces and 5,878 square feet of commercial space.

The developer has already started excavation of the 17,500-square-foot lot, which formerly housed a two-story brick office building, according to property records. Real estate values in western Queens have increased substantially over the past several years, with investors like Jamestown Properties and BLDG Management pursuing development projects in the area, as previously reported[NY Yimby]Angela Hunt
