Stawksi Partners filed plans Friday for a 66-story residential tower in Long Island City. The 838,000-square-foot building at 43-30 24th Street will include 921 rental apartments, 17,000 square feet of retail space, a library and an indoor swimming pool.
The site most recently housed two manufacturing warehouses used by retailers Bergdorf Goodman and To Boot New York. Stawski terminated their leases earlier this year, property records show. The Midtown-based development firm also owns an adjacent lot at 23-10 43rd Avenue.
Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is the architect of record, the filing shows.
The project will add to a flurry of new apartment towers set to rise in Long Island City over the coming years. For example, Heatherwood Communities is building a 57-story tower at 42-12 28th Street – also designed by Goldstein, Hill & West – and G&M Realty is building two towers on the 5Pointz site at 22-44 Jackson Avenue.
Stawski Partners, founded by German-born Axel Stawski, owns half a dozen office buildings in Manhattan, including 360 Madison Avenue and the Broad Financial Center at 33 Whitehall Street.

A 700 footer should make a pretty good impact on 24th street. I mean 45th 22nd Steet is 777 feet, thin and in the center of the island and it is making a major impact. This looks to be fatter and close in height so it should be a skyline adjuster.
edit- just realized it is 24th in Queens… so ya it should make a huge impact.
Actually I should remove my post above. Those progress pics and render on site are for a smaller hotel that they are working on next door to this site with the 700 ft tower.
At 700 ft if it were built today would be the tallest in queens or anywhere in nyc outside manhattan for that matter. Even with the other 2 larger towers proposed this will still be 3rd largest in queens.
