Queens Plaza Park (Sven) Lobby

Queens, NY

Queens Plaza Park, also known as Sven, is a 762 foot-tall residential skyscraper in the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens, New York. The building was developed by The Durst organization, with the overall architectural features being designed by Handel Architects and the interior architecture being designed by Selldorf Architects. The structure was designed in such a way as to accommodate the inclusion of the city landmark the Bank of the Manhattan Company Building, which was originally built in 1927 and designed by Morrell Smith. The new tall, glass clad structure was designed to curve around the back of the bank building in order to visually both set itself apart, as well as embrace the historic building.

EverGreene was contracted by the Hunter Roberts Construction Group to apply a Tadelakt plaster finish in the Queens Plaza Park lobby and certain common amenity areas. Tadelakt is an ancient plaster technique with roots in Morocco, which creates an elegant, long-lasting, water resistant interior finish.
