Must all news in Long Island City continue to be framed by Amazon? Sadly yes, at least for the next few months. Life goes on, though somewhat drearily (and cold), as does building. The Court Square Blog updates us on two super-large towers coming to Court Square and Queens Plaza respectively. Like the flowers weeks away, they are starting to spring from the earth. One will be 78-stories and the other 63. Both will be taller than the Citi Building when they top out, at which time we’ll probably be referencing Spring 2020, though hopefully not Amazon.
