27-17 42nd Road rises 10 stories

The last time we checked in at 27-17 42nd Road (a/k/a 28-02 42nd Road) was in June when rebar was starting to sprout from the ground.1 When we stopped by last week, we saw that construction has now reached the 10th floor, as seen in the photo below.

The former site of the proposed “Star Tower” back in 2008 had been vacant for many years before the lot sold for a princely sum in 2014.2 A new round of permits were approved on the site in December, 2014.3
