The latest plans for a 421-unit residential building that will be located next to the Queensboro Bridge were unveiled earlier this week.

The World-Wide Group is developing the building, which will be located at the intersection of 24th street and Queens Plaza North, across the street from Scandals, the strip club.

The development, which has not yet been named, will be 21-stories tall, and will be comprised of apartments ranging from studios to three-bedroom units.

The company said that there will be 25,000 square feet of amenities, including an outdoor pool, private garden, indoor parking, a bike room and a fitness center.

The company broke ground on the project in September and hopes to begin leasing by this time next year.

“We are excited to be contributing to the growth of one of New York City’s great neighborhoods,” said David Lowenfeld, Executive Vice President at The World-Wide Group.

How anyone can sleep in that building is beyond me, even if they put all the bedrooms in the opposite corner. Screeching all night long. Yuk. Buildings next to the trains were never called “luxury” before.

And if normal mid-town workers can afford those places, your normal is nothing like my normal.

Sorry people moving to LIC are mainly just normal Midtown workers.

Yuppies really don’t exist anymore or live in Manhattan if they do. And hipster are Williamsburg.

Try making a new way to label people who are different than yourself.

Well most hipsters don’t actually go to work, they live off their parents. The rest will ride their bikes over the bridge then tell you how they’re saving the environment all day

A Long Island City man on Friday, Jan. 28, was sentenced to 19 years in prison for the 2020 fatal shooting of a public school social studies teacher who was out walking his dog when he was caught in the crossfire during a confrontation between gang rivals in broad daylight, just blocks from his home, according to Queens District Attorney’s office.
