Long Island City gets first condo building
In a sign of Queens’ rising development, the Developers Group announced Wednesday that sales of the 66 units in the new 10-story Queens Plaza would start this autumn. The Queens Plaza on 27th Street in Long Island City will be the first condo building ever in that neighborhood. Major projects built in Long Island City so far include Citylights, a co-op, and Avalon Riverview, a rental building. The units at Queens Plaza range from 505 to 1,568 square feet, according to a release from the Developers Group. Residents are expected to start moving in during early 2006.
