A trio of high-rise luxury rental towers with more than 1,800 apartments and 120,000-square-feet of indoor and outdoor amenities including a private, 1.6-acre park are opening in the Queens Plaza section of Long Island City this fall.
The development, called Jackson Park, is located along Queens Plaza South and Jackson Avenue, and the three towers recently topped out at 42, 44 and 53 stories high.
Jackson Park occupies a full block and will feature a wide variety of apartment types and floor plans. Residents will have access to a standalone five-story, 45,000-square-foot amenity
clubhouse with below grade connectivity to each of the three residential towers.
Leasing is expected to begin in the fall with move-ins for the first residential tower anticipated by the end of the year.
“In keeping with our tradition of creating sophisticated living and dynamic work environments in the world’s top markets, Jackson Park is destined to become Long Island City’s most desirable address” said Rob Speyer, CEO of Tishman Speyer, who owns the buildings.
“Tishman Speyer is a pioneer in Long Island City, which has established itself as New York’s most dynamic and sought-after neighborhood. We are excited to deliver a truly 24/7 community where New Yorkers can live, work and play, complete with best-in-class amenities and convenient access to everything New York has to offer.”
Jackson Park is located directly across the street from Tishman Speyer’s commercial development, the JACX, which is currently being constructed. This development will consist of two 26-story towers and 1.2 million-square-feet of office and retail space as well as a one-acre landscaped terrace.
The JACX is more than 70 percent pre-leased to fashion and tech companies including WeWork, which plans to open a 250,000-square-foot location.
Jackson Park and the JACX will be Long Island City’s largest mixed-use development and once completed, will feature more than 55,000 square feet of retail space including a gourmet market, food hall, coffee shop, restaurants and boutique fitness offerings.
