Opening imminent for Healthy Living Pharmacy at 42-15 Crescent Street

The last time we checked in at Healthy Living Pharmacy at 42-15 Crescent Street was in January when we saw that interior construction had completed.1 When we stopped by last week, we saw that the shelves had been stocked and the business is on the verge of opening, as seen in the photo below. Store hours will be Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on weekends from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

24-16 Queens Plaza South begins to rise

Back in January 2017, we stopped by 24-16 Queens Plaza South and saw that construction crews were putting up pipe scaffolding on site.1 When we stopped by last week, we saw that construction is rising from the original structure, as seen in the photo below.

Here’s more information about the project from The Real Deal:2

The Midtown-based development firm, which is led by CEO Jeffrey Simpson, acquired the five-story building at 24-16 Queens Plaza South with the goal of preserving the existing structure on the site and adding 18 stories on top. The end product would be a 23-story, 100,000-square-foot residential tower holding 117 rental units and 3,600 square feet of ground-floor retail space, according to Crain’s.
