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.
I live in one of the buildings in crescent street, the windowswalls are fairly soundproof. Unfortunately i cant sleep with the window open in the spring but c’est la vie
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.
When all the new luxury buildings abutting the #7 line are completed,
the noisy #7 won’t be allowed to run at night.
Maybe just call them “Dudes.”
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
And how the BLEEP are these yuppie-hipsters supposed to get to work in Manhattan? Take the ALREADY OVERCROWDED 7 or N TRAINS?
