The latest addition to Long Island City’s skyline, 24-16 Queens Plaza South, is a five-story, pre-war commercial building topped off with a new high-rise tower. Designed by Woods Bagot, the unique façade design has been described as Art Moderne-inspired.

Although not the tallest of constructions amongst the new developments around Long Island City, 24-16 Queens Plaza South’s facade stands out from the more common glass towers. The exterior features horizontal stripes in Fairview’s Vitrabond FR MCM panels in “Pearl White Gloss” as fabricated by Clearview Cladding Concepts. The project also features Vitrabond panels in “Anthrazit Grey”.

Fairview has a reputation for offering specialty finishes, however, this project shows how one of our standard white stocking finishes can be used to achieve a unique exterior façade design. Other projects featuring Fairview’s white color finishes can be found here.
