CORRECTION: The Real Deal has just amended their story and forgot to include that the 2nd tower, of 56-stories, had previously been filed in October. Thus the plan is basically in its original form of 1000+ units, plus school, and maybe a Shake Shack. Never mind.
TF Cornerstone has taken a big knife to their plans for Parcel C in Hunters Point South according to The Real Deal. The latest iteration contains only ~400 units in a single 46-story tower versus 1,200 units in a pair of 55 & 44-story towers announced only this past October. No reason is given in the TRD story, but there have been logistical problems at the site since the very beginning, most notably train tunnels and utility lines.
Does this mean there will no longer be a school located there? How about a Shake Shack? Who knows, but at least there will be less crowding on the Vernon/Jackson platform at rush hour – fewer shadows and more open sky too.
TF Cornerstone Downscales Plans for LIC Residential Tower – “downscales” is putting it nicely

Looks like the story has been updated (ie corrected). They didn’t cut the plan in half, they needed to file one permit for each tower so they filed for permits for one of the towers this week. They already filed for permits for the other tower a while back.
