Not long ago, foundation work was completed for a 11-story mixed-use residential and retail building in Long Island City.
Now construction work is moving on the ODA-designed project, and the lower levels of the 22-22 Jackson Ave. building are starting to take shape.
A construction poster at the site says the building is due to be completed by the summer of 2015.
The building, which is directly across from the crumbling 5Pointz site and MoMA PS1, will have more than 5,500 square feet of retail space and 175 rental units, according to filings with the Buildings Department.
It will feature an exposed concrete façade, a two-story lobby with lounge and library spaces, a gym, an indoor pool and a roof deck, according to ODA’s website.
