27-17 42nd Road tops out

The last time we checked in at 27-17 42nd Road (a/k/a 28-02 42nd Road) was in December when we noted that the building had risen 20 stories.1 When we stopped by last week, we saw the building has topped out, 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
