    Me too! This project will alleviate the architectural crime that has been Queens West so far. It cant start soon enough as far I'm concerned.

    ^^^ if you go back it says the project will not start until 2008. So we have a few months or so to go before we'll start hearing anything about this one moving.

    And the Article pasted

    Here’s the news about LIC:

    …it has also been confirmed that the practice’s 185,000m2 Silvercup Studio complex on the Long Island City Waterfront is on hold. The $1 billion (£500 million) mixed-use development, which won approval in mid-2006, has stalled due to issues over protracted land sales and the delayed removal of power plants from the site.”

    Meanwhile CUNY’s going forward with the dorm:

    “The development at 5-11 47th Ave. would have 400 total residential units, half of which would be for public rent and the other half will be divided between 188 graduate units and 12 faculty housing units at street level. It would also include a 6,000-square-foot office for the QCA and an open courtyard for art displays.
    CB 2 Chairman Joe Conley said the board approved the plan with some stipulations. CUNY, for example, has agreed to never sell the property, he said. Conley said the board also asked for 20 percent of the non-student residential units to be offered as affordable housing, though he was not sure if the developer would agree.”

    What a bad day for Architecture fans.

    80 South Street officially dead -- I know we all saw the signs but still -- and now this.

    Very disappointing. This would have been so great for NY. I was stilll reeling from hearing the Calatrava train station was in trouble, and now this. At this point the MOMA tower going ahead would be my main consolation. But that too, it seems, looks doubtful at best.

    It's funny that just about everyday I drive past that site on Vernon Blvd and there isn't nothing going on, the plant is still there.Now I see why. Are we as a city going to get anything done right? It's getting disgusting by the day.

    It's on hold. Hopefully the issues are resolved sooner than later.

    wasn't there an issue with a suprisingly unfavorable arrangement of bedrock at the site?
