The three towers would rise at 28-34 Jackson Avenue, 28-10 Jackson Avenue and 30-02 Queens Boulevard. The 53-story, 501,000-square-foot building at 28-34 Jackson would hold 658 apartments and a ground-floor retail space. The other properties will be a 44-story, 521,000-square-foot tower with 683 rentals on Jackson Avenue and a 33-story, 365,000-square-foot tower with 448 rentals.

The development, to be designed by architecture firm Goldstein Hill & West, will cost $875 million to build, New York YIMBY reported.

The developers announced their partnership in June. Tenants would begin to move in to at least one of the towers by 2017, as previously reported.
