Tower rises 10 floors at 28-07 Jackson Avenue

Back in March, we saw that construction just starting on the fifth floor of 28-07 Jackson Avenue.1 When we stopped by last week, we saw that construction has reached 10 floors now, as seen in the photo below. Permits were approved on Oct. 21, calling for 1,450,331 square feet of commercial space with a FAR of 11.98.

Here is more from New York YIMBY, who was the first to spot permits back in June.2

It will consist of two towers, named One and Three Gotham Center. There will also be 250 parking spots, spread between the first two floors and a mezzanine level sandwiched in between them. Parking isn’t required in Long Island City, but zoning rules for the area around Queens Plaza cap the maximum amount of non-residential parking at 250 spaces.
