27-19 44th Drive hits growth spurt

The last time we checked in on the former site of LIC Auto Repair on 44-12 Purves Street a/k/a 27-19 44th Drive, construction had just started peaking over the fence.1 Since then, the site has hit a growth spurt, with construction rising above 10 floors, as seen in the photo below. Signage on site says the project will be called “The Watermark” with an anticipated delivery date of summer of 2017.

According to permits filed in October 2014 first spotted by New York YIMBY,2  a 27-story building with 168 units (122,790 square feet) and a commercial space of 2,807 square feet will begin to rise soon.3
