Back in August, we stopped by 24-16 Queens Plaza South and saw that the building had just topped out.1 When we stopped by last week, we saw that scaffolding has been taken down on the lower part of the building, and facade work is in the advanced stages on the upper area of the building. Signage on site says that the building will be develiered 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.
