Queens Library Officials and elected leaders will be celebrating the “topping out” of the Hunters Point Community Library Thursday.
The ceremony will mark the completion of the building’s steel framing and exterior, indicating that the “striking eight-story concrete rectangular shaped structure” is expected to be completed next summer, according to Queens library officials.
The event, which will go from 11:00 am through 12:30 pm, will include remarks by officials, the hoisting of the American flag, the signing of an interior wall and a tour of the building that will showcase the panoramic views. The architect Steven Holl and the design team are also expected to attend.
