8 Court Square Wraps up Construction in Long Island City, Queens
Construction is wrapping up on 8 Court Square, a 20-story residential building at 27-10 44th Drive in Long Island City, Queens. Designed by Hill West Architects and developed by 25-34 Jackson Avenue Property Owner LLC, the 224-foot-tall structure will yield 157 rental units spread across 107,377 square feet with 48 reserved for affordable housing, and 10,170 square feet of retail space. Cauldwell Wingate Company is the general contractor for the property, which is alternately addressed as 27-10 44th Drive and bound by 44th Drive to the northeast, Jackson Avenue to the northwest, and Thomson Avenue to the west and south.
Recent photographs show the remainder of the brick and metal envelope in place since our last construction update just over one year ago, when only about two-thirds of the reinforced concrete superstructure was enclosed. King Contracting Group was in charge of laying the light red bricks, which were supplied by Belden Tristate Building Materials. All that remains to be completed are the two ground-floor frontages along 44th Drive and Thomson Avenue, which are still obscured behind sidewalk sheds.
