Comprising retail and office space in addition to its 958 residences, Sven rises 67 stories above the vibrant neighborhood of Long Island City, Queens. Situated directly across from Queensboro Plaza, the building’s central location offers easy access to bus and subway lines, including front door access to the E, M, and R trains.

Included in the Sven development plan is a one-half acre public park that fronts the residential tower, as well as the adaptive reuse of the historic Long Island City Clock Tower. Completed in 1927 and originally home to Bank of Manhattan, the landmarked Clock Tower will now include five unique retail spaces with unmatched convenience and exposure.

Set for completion in fall 2021, Sven is seeking a LEED Platinum certification and will be one of the tallest buildings in the borough of Queens.


Consistent with The Durst Organization’s ongoing commitment to sustainability, Sven will offer residents a vision of sustainability that both respects the natural world and promotes your wellbeing. Sven will provide a home where people can live and thrive. Sustainable features will be woven throughout the building and each residence as an integral part of its design, construction and management.
