28-18 Jackson Avenue, which is part of Tishman Speyer’s plan to bring approximately 1,600 residental apartments to Long Island City,1 is completely covered in pipe scaffolding now.2 Construction crews put the pipe scaffolding up with in the last two weeks, and a permit filed on September 11 calls for the full mechanical demolition of the building.3 We’ve also continued to see plenty of demolition activity in other parts of the site, as you can see in the photos below.
Here are more details of the project from Crane’s New York:
The partnership between Tishman Speyer and H&R REIT said it plans to invest a total of $875 million—including the land cost—to build three residential towers on the site, a total of 1.2 million square feet of new development holding 1,600 rental apartments and 30,000 square feet of ground floor retail space.
