The Towers is a landmark co-op building in Jackson Heights Queens. One of the most prestigious addresses in Jackson Heights, it was once home to Edward A. MacDougall, Jackson Height's original planner and the President of the Queensboro Corporation. At the time of its construction in 1924, it was the single-most luxurious building made by the Queensboro Corporation with marble hallways, oak floors, and an elegant, large garden designed by Noel Chamberlain. The opulence and quality was meant to attract wealthy Manhattanites. The Tower is composed of eight separate buildings, in a "Central Italian"-style with terra cotta, stone, and tile roofs. The original prices in 1924 for the apartments were $18,000 to $25,000. Compare that to the 2000s when once again the co-op apartments in the Towers have led the Jackson Heights real estate market. The selling price for a three- or four-bedroom co-op apartment in the Towers would easily be over $500,000.
