Sidewalk shed up at 24-16 Queens Plaza South

Recently, construction crews put up pipe scaffolding at 24-16 Queens Plaza South pursuant to a permit filed with the Department of Buildings in April.1 The current five-story building will then be partially demolished, and a 23-story structure will begin to rise. 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.
