Construction Tour: 42-20 27th Street

Northeast corner.

Construction is ongoing at 42-20 27th Street, The Rabsky Group's 18-story, 195-unit residential building in Long Island City. Designed by ODA New York, the building features a concrete façade with botanical gardens that slice through the northeast and southwest corners of the structure. At the top of the structure, the massing slopes downward to the southeast, eroding the structure to allow for private outdoor terraces with views to Long Island City and the Manhattan skyline.
