Developer Chris Jiashu Xu unveiled a fresh look at the Long Island City skyscraper poised to be Queens’ tallest.

The condominium development at 23-15 44th Drive is slated to have 800 condo units across 66 stories, 6sqft reported. Xu’s United Construction & Development Group filed plans for the building in February, after paying $143 million to Citigroup for the site in July 2015.

Dubbed Court Square City View Tower, the building will feature 360-degree views of Manhattan, an all-glass curtain wall facade, a spa, fitness center, yoga room and sauna, according to the website. There will also be a pool and a private entrance to the 7 train station.

Architects Hill West, formerly known as Goldstein, Hill & West, said the building is a “sleek, monolithic structure,” and that they used two shades of glass to create a building that “appears to expose its special interiors beyond its glassy exterior.”

Construction at the site has begun and is due to be complete in 2018, according to the website.

In December, Xu paid $100 million for a 3.7-acre development site in Flushing.  [6sqft]Miriam Hall
