I've been in downtown Flushing a lot lately. Today, it seemed to me that there must be a place they are just handing out bricks and having people just start towering them up.

It's truly incredible the number of cranes in say a 10 block radius.
There's also an uncanny ability to plop many stories on top of a raggedy old building.

I think this building has reached full height now. I walked by earlier along Roosevelt and it really doesn't seem as massive as I thought it would be. It may have just been the view I had from where I was walking, other blocks may appear differently.

It looks like the retail space on Roosevelt is up for lease already:

One of the two images is labeled as a "community facility entrance". Does anyone know of a community organization going in this building?

Honestly, whenever I catch a glance of it from the corner of my eye as I exit the 73rd subway , I shudder...Part of me doesn't believe it, It looks sooo very LIC. So out of place here.

It's looking like it's closer to being completed.

It looks so horrible and out of place.

In an alternate timeline this is actually a green building like Bosco Verticale.

To be fair, apart from the historic district, most of the mixed use buildings in Jackson Heights look out of place.

The finishes look very cheap. The cabinets in the kitchen look like they're from Home Depot. The tile in the bathroom is the most inexpensive looking on the market. No way this is ``luxury.''

Can you link a photo of the interiors? I haven't seen any pics of the inside.

That’s a different building. The reason that listing was posted earlier in the thread is to show how this brand new building that’s still under construction (71-17 Roosevelt) looks from the living room of that other, older building.

I checked online and found no photos of the interiors of 71-17 Roosevelt so it remains to be seen how luxurious the finishes will be.
