Back in April, we stopped by 24-16 Queens Plaza South and saw that construction had risen 10 stories from the original tower.1 When we stopped by last week, we saw that the site has hit a growth spurt, and that a new rendering has appeared on site, as seen in the photos below. Delivery is expected this fall.
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.
