Skyline Tower, previously known as Court Square City View Tower, is a residential skyscraper under construction in the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens in New York City. The building topped out in October 2019, surpassing One Court Square to become the tallest building in Queens as well as the tallest building on Long Island, at 778 feet (237 m). However, later in October 2021, the building was surpassed in height following the topping out of 9 DeKalb Avenue.
Citigroup previously controlled the site dating back to the 1980s, having taken ownership of it during the development of One Court Square and the smaller Two Court Square. While planned as the future site of another office tower for Citi, by 2015 the company decided it didn't need the potential space and that the value of the land was higher as a development site. As a result, Citi hired JLL to market the site and several months later sold the parcel to Flushing, Queens-based developer Chris Xu for $143 million.
