Another towering residential structure is planned for Long Island City.
Plans for a 33-story residential and commercial building have been filed with the Department of Buildings on a vacant lot blocks away from Court Square Park and the subway station on Jackson Avenue.
The building, which is planned for 44-26 Purves St., will comprise 270 units in 206,546 square feet of residential space, according to Department of Buildings records.
FXFOWLE Architects is designing the residential tower, which will also include 517 square feet of commercial space.
The 33-floor building will join not only the 50-story One Court Square building in the LIC skyline, but also another mammoth mixed-use residential building that is planned for the burgeoning neighborhood.
Rockrose Development Corporation is working on a 50-story building at 43-25 Hunter St. with 767,305 square feet of residential space and 18,800 square feet of retail space. There will be 974 units and 67 enclosed parking spots.
Excavation work recently began on this development, according to The Court Square Blog.
